The fight here will be a good one, but Woodley has not been in the octagon since March of last year. Burns was in the octagon this year in March before the shutdown. Burns also throws more strikes per minute, but does not land at as high of an accuracy. Look for Burns to throw harder in this bout and land more blows, but also bring in a win in under 4.5 rounds as Woodley struggles to bounce back like he would like after being off for a year.
