Fast rising contender Gilbert Burns brought former Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley some rude awakening in the main event of UFC On ESPN 9 Main event on Saturday night at the Apex Center.

Woodley went into the fight after almost more than a year away from the Octagon and his return wasn't as palatable as he perceived, with Gilbert Burns pressuring and dominating him from the opening round till the end to win a unanimous decision 50-44 twice and 55-45 on the Judges scorecards.
“I’m very happy. I trained so hard for this fight. I knew I could do it. I was calling this guy out for a reason,” Burns told Daniel Cormier in his post-fight interview. “My name now has got to be the No. 1 contender. I love the champ, my training partner Kamaru Usman, but c’mon – give me the shot. I’ve got a lot of love for you, but I’m next. I want to fight for the title. If they want to make the f…

The UFC is gearing up to bring you the most anticipated match up in its history in UFC 249 when Khabib Nurmagomedov defends his Lightweight title against former interim title holder Tony Ferguson in the Headlining Bout on April 18th.

Nurmagomedov, has not just been unbeaten but has overwhelmed his opponents and has ended his fights either by submission or by pinning them to the canvas but this time, He will be facing a new threat in Ferguson, to go owns a slick Jiu Jitsu and could rough things up with a couple of elbows.

Ben Askren, who has been an Olympic Gold medalist and knows a lot about being a good grappler gave his take on the match up and why he believes Ferguson could be the one to stop Khabib Nurmagomedov while speaking to Submission Radio.

“Khabib’s obviously going to get takedowns, and he’s been so dominant with ground-and-pound,” Askren said. “But at the same time, Tony is so active off his back and he’s good with the elbows and he’s got a lot of tricky stuff. I think it’s going to be totally fascinating. I’m excited to see what happens. 
“Tony’s a great fit, because he’s not going to stay put on bottom. Tony can take a lot of damage, which, you know – Khabib will dish it out. Tony doesn’t get tired. And then Tony’s a high-volume striker. He’s not a power puncher, which I don’t think is the right mix to beat Khabib because I think you have to kind of fight him hard, stuff a few takedowns and volume strike him. And I think that’s how you’re going to beat him – and that’s what Tony does. So there’s a possibility.”

Everywhere in the world is presently taking measures to prevent the spread of the recent outbreak of Corona Virus, which in the US, has been dropped to 10 people per event, However, Askren wants the UFC to proceed with the event without breaching the laws placed to reduce the spread of the highly contagious virus.

“The one thing I said last night was, let’s not get greedy, Dana – let’s make this really simple,” Askren said. “All we need is Tony and Khabib. We don’t need a (expletive) undercard. So in America they’re doing 10 people maximum – you can’t have more than 10 people in a group. So you’ve got Tony, Khabib, three judges. But, you could also have the judges be remote. So you don’t actually have to have them there.
“Your referee, you have Dana, you have Bruce Buffer and you have Joe Rogan, maybe. Maybe we take the judges out and make the judges remote at a remote location and we give (the fighters) each two coaches or something, or one coach. I think there’s a way to do it to keep it under 10 people and broadcast it.”
UFC 249 takes place on the 18th of April but no venue has been announced due to the recent Corona Virus outbreak
