Gilbert Burns states he desires to defend the UFC welterweight title, and he’s made his case with a major, one-sided victory over former champion Tyron Woodley in the main event of UFC Vegas.

Woodley, who came into this bout as the No. 1 ranked welterweight contender, previously won the UFC welterweight championship at UFC 201 with a first-round knockout of Robbie Lawler. He defended the belt four times, battling Stephen Thompson to a draw and a decision win, defeating Demian Maia by decision and submitting Darren Till. Woodley lost the belt to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in March 2019. Tonight’s fight marked his first fight since.

Burns, who entered this bout as the No. 6 contender, had a five-fight win streak going into tonight. Two months ago, at UFC Brasilia, Burns scored a major first-round TKO of Demian Maia and made a statement as he’s moved up the ranks.
