The UFC is also set to hold an event at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena a week later, on May 23rd. While the lineup hasn’t been announced yet, Dana told ESPN that Tyron Woodley is likely to fight in the main event.
“We’re working on a fight with [Woodley] right now. After these three dates, we’re coming right back. We’re going to do four fights in 14 days. After May 9th, the UFC schedule is back on. We’re back on and running. We’re looking at a fight for Woodley. Woodley will probably be the fourth fight. He’ll be the main event.”
And according to Gilbert Burns, he could be the man to face Woodley in the main event. According to ‘Durinho’, this is the fourth time he’s accepted a fight with the former 170lbs champion.
