After the UFC successfully returned earlier this month, with three big cards in Jacksonville, Florida, including UFC 249, the promotion returns home to Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend for the first of two cards in a week. UFC Vegas went down tonight at the UFC APEX and was headlined by the former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, going up against up-and-comer Gilbert Burns.
In the UFC Vegas co-main event, Augusto Sakai beat Blagoy Ivanov via split decision in a heavyweight contest. Elsewhere on the card, Billy Quarantillo defeated Spike Carlyle in a crazy unanimous decision contest and Roosevelt Roberts impressed, scoring a second round RNC victory over Brok Weaver.
