On Saturday, Sept. 19, the UFC returned to the Apex in Las Vegas for its 36th event on ESPN+. The event once again featured no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the night’s main event, a pair of ranked welterweight collided as former interim champion Colby Covington took on former titleholder Tyron Woodley. Covington entered the cage for the first time since a fifth-round knockout defeat to current champion Kamaru Usman in December. Woodley aimed to rebound from a decision loss to No. 1 contender Gilbert Burns in his last outing in May.
Early in the fifth round, Covington scored a TKO, when Woodley injured his rib.
