UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs. Burns was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that took place on May 30, 2020 at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[1]


The event was headlined by a welterweight bout between former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns.[2]

This event was originally expected to be held on May 23, but the promotion eventually pushed it back to May 30 at a yet TBD location.[3] UFC president Dana White stated that he intended for the event to take place in Las Vegas. However, if the Nevada state government did not allow the fight to happen due to restrictions put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, he would look to have the event take place in Arizona instead, since professional sports were allowed to return on May 15 without fans in attendance.[4] White confirmed on May 20 that the event will be held at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, despite no official announcement from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) regarding permission for combat sports.[1]

Additionally, the event includes fighters that were pulled from other events previously cancelled, as well as the following bouts:

  • A heavyweight bout between former WSOF Heavyweight Champion Blagoy Ivanov and Augusto Sakai (scheduled for the original May 9 date of UFC 250 that later became UFC 249).
  • A women's strawweight bout between Mackenzie Dern and Hannah Cifers (scheduled for UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Teixeira on April 25).

On May 26, Kevin Holland was forced to withdraw from his scheduled welterweight bout with Daniel Rodriguez due to an injury.[5] He was replaced by promotional newcomer Gabriel Green.[6]

At the weigh-ins, Brok Weaver weighed in at 157.5 pounds, 1.5 pounds over the lightweight non-title fight limit of 156 pounds. He was fined 20 percent of his purse and his bout with Roosevelt Roberts proceeded at a catchweight.[7]
