Shaun, Chuck, and Producer Chris preview the UFC’s return to Las Vegas at the Apex this weekend as former Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley battles the surging Gilbert Burns in the headliner and give their thoughts on what to expect from Woodley after a fifteen-month layoff following a tough loss to current champ Kamaru Usman, “Durinho” potentially sneaking his way into the title picture at 170, and how the smaller Octagon could impact the fight. Plus, highlights from the rest of the card, including Mackenzie Dern’s matchup against Hannah Cifers.
After the break, the guys run through a number of headlines including the recently announced Joseph Benavidez-Deiveson Figueiredo 2 and Dustin Poirier-Dan Hooker fights, Henry Cejudo officially being removed from the rankings, and vacating the Bantamweight title, Colby Covington’s departure from ATT, thoughts on Conor McGregor’s GOAT list, and where he fits in, and the UFC trademarking “UFSEA”. And, as always, the guys close the show by handing out their Interim Titles of the Week.
