The former welterweight champion has a healthy mix in his magnificent mixed martial arts CV, collecting a range of submission wins, TKO/KO finishes and decision victories over a stellar 11-year career.
Through those 19 wins, Woodley has amassed seven TKO/KO victories, most notably over Lawler to win the welterweight crown inside the first round. As mentioned, the experienced fighter will want to keep this one on the feet as much as he can to use his superior striking and strength to his advantage. As a result, Woodley by TKO/KO Stoppage at 21/10 is the official Oddschanger tip for this bout.
The ex-champ has also put together quite the submission catalogue, although, his win over Till in 2018 remains his only victory in this fashion in 10 years - Woodley is now rightfully so priced at 16/1 to force the tap from the submission specalist.
As for Burns, his TKO/KO CV is almost equal to that of his opponent's, finishing six of his 18 wins in this manner, which equals to a TKO/KO record of 33%. Woodley hasn't been stopped in his UFC career, with Nate Marquardt the last man to win via TKO/KO over him back in Strikeforce. As a result, Burns is a high price of 7/1 to beat Woodley through a TKO/KO.
If the Brazilian is to move up the rankings and stake a claim for a title shot, naturally, his best route is to win via submission. The 33-year-old has claimed eight of his 18 wins in this fashion (44%) and he is now priced at 4/1 to win through a submission, which is his lowest method of victory price.
