The American’s defense was not on point as he got hit with almost everything that was thrown at him. Woodley got cut in the opening round. Burns was following him everywhere in the Octagon and was the one dictating the pace of the fight no matter what.
After the fight, Burns said that he wants a title shot for the welterweight crown.
