The UFC unveiled a full 11-bout card for its expected May 30 event at its facility in Las Vegas.

UFC president Dana White confirmed that former champion Tyron Woodley (19-4-1) will face Gilbert Burns (18-3) in the headlining welterweight bout of UFC Fight Night at the Apex facility.

The event has yet to be formally approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which will convene for a vote on Wednesday on whether to reopen the state to combat spots.

Combat sports were suspended by the state in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, which will be televised by ESPN, also includes a welterweight bout between Kevin Holland (17-5) and Daniel Rodriguez (11-1). Holland is fresh off a first-round TKO victory over Anthony Hernandez on May 16 at Jacksonville, Fla.

That card was one of three straight held in Jacksonville.
