The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns after a week off with an ESPN offering, and all but one fighter successfully made weight.

After delivering three events in the span of eight days, the UFC is back with UFC on ESPN 9, which will be headlined by a welterweight scrap between former champion Tyron Woodley and fast-rising contender Gilbert Burns.

This is the first fight back for Woodley (19-4-1) since he dropped the 170-pound belt to Kamaru Usman in March 2019. Prior to that, Woodley was on an impressive win streak that saw him knock out Robbie Lawler to claim the belt in 2016 and then defend it against Stephen Thompson, Demian Maia and Darren Till. “The Chosen One” looked good on the scales and came in at 170.5 pounds.

The five-fight win streak for “Durinho” is his most impressive stretch of his career, and he is unbeaten since returning to the welterweight division. Burns (18-3) has notched victories over Alexey Kunchenko, Gunnar Nelson and most recently, a knockout over Maia in March. The surging Brazilian successfully made weight by tipping the scales at 170.5 pounds.

UFC on ESPN 9 will air in full simultaneously on both ESPN and ESPN+. The prelims kick off at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT and the main card begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
