May 30th

According to Dana, the UFC’s plan to host its May 30th event at the UFC Apex in Vegas is “a go”

Currently this event is still pending the Nevada Athletic Commission’s approval to reinstate combat sports. White’s Wednesday message to the Review-Journal suggests the UFC has been given a heads-up and those restrictions are about to be eased, although the NAC is yet to make a formal announcement ...



These are the four fights so far ...

- Woodley vs. Burns
- Hill vs. Abreu
- Dern vs. Cifers
- Ivanov vs. Sakai

Gilbert Burns' distance striking has certainly improved, but he still has plenty of room to grow.

Important info worth noting ...


According to a UFC official, the Apex shows will be contested in a 25' cage rather than the 30' octagon we generally see at most UFC events.

This benefits pressure fighters that want to back their opponent into the cage the most. Many, if not most of the best strikers today are pressure fighters. On the flip side, some wrestlers and grapplers do their best work in open space.

Worth noting the difference in competition level, but here's how stats from the last 5 years match up for Woodley vs Burns

Kevin Holland won’t be making a quick turnaround, after all.

He was not given medical clearance to compete after sustaining an injury in training.

It is believed the promotion is currently seeking a replacement to take on Rodriguez

The UFC has zoned in on a new opponent for Daniel Rodriguez

Gabriel Green

The promotion is currently finalizing the bout

A former Bellator competitor, Green has turned heads on the regional scene for his current six-fight finishing streak. In nine professional victories, Green has never gone the distance – with five submissions and four TKOs.

As for Rodriguez, the Dana White’s Contender Series alumnus is riding high off a submission victory over Tim Means in February. The Donald Cerrone protege has won eight straight fights.

Woodley has the 9th lowest striking output (significant strike attempted per minute) among all ranked UFC fighters at 5.05 per minute.

The average for a ranked fighter is 9.02

Woodley's 93.7% takedown defense rate ranks #3 in UFC history, but here's a look at where that comes from ...

The only weight miss was from Brok Weaver who was 157.5 and did not make an additional attempt to cut further.

His opponent, Roosevelt Roberts was on the mark at 156.

Weaver will surrender 20% of his purse to Roberts.
