The UFC has announced its full fight card for next Saturday.
UFC President Dana White revealed the 11-bout lineup during an interview with ESPN on Friday, confirming several rumored and reported bouts including the welterweight main event between former UFC champion Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns.
Also on the main card, heavyweights Blagoy Ivanov and Augusto Sakai face off, Kevin Holland — who competed six days ago at UFC on ESPN 8 — drops down to welterweight to fight Daniel Rodriguez, Roosevelt Roberts meets Brok Weaver in a battle of lightweight prospects, and jiu-jitsu ace Mackenzie Dern fights Hannah Cifers in a strawweight bout.
The May 30 show is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas pending approval from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who will address the status of the show at a meeting on May 27.
The preliminaries and main card are scheduled to air on ESPN and the ESPN+ streaming service.
