Gilbert Burns (#6) poses a severe threat in the UFC Welterweight division. After his KO victory against Demian Maia, Burn's made it known that he wants to stay active and climb the Welterweight rank sooner than later. Tyron Woodley (#1) has obliged the newcomer, and Woodley has stated he has a chip on his shoulder and wants to build his way back to a championship fight. At a glance, the rankings would have you think this fight is lopsided for Woodley, but Gilbert's MMA profile is far more impressive than average MMA fans would believe. Here's my breakdown of the upcoming fight on May 30, 2020.
