The former UFC Welterweight Champion will walk into the Octagon for the first time since the fifth defense of his welterweight title where Woodley faced Kamaru Usman on March 2, 2019, in the co-main event at UFC 235. He lost the fight by unanimous decision, ending his nearly three-year reign as welterweight champion.
On May 16, 2019, it was reported that Woodley suffered a hand injury and was pulled from the fight, since then he never got to make his appearance in the Octagon when he faces off Gilbert Burns in the main event of UFC Fight Night on May 30, which is expected to take place at the promotion's Apex facility in Las Vegas.

In his last bout Burns faced Demian Maia on March 14, 2020 at UFC Fight Night 170. He won the fight via technical knockout in round one. This won him the Performance of the Night award.
