MMA: UFC Fight Night-Saldana vs Souza Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 278 will take place from the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday, August 20. The main event will be a fight between Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards for the UFC Welterweight championship. The main card has five fights and the preliminary card is scheduled for four bouts. One of the preliminary bouts will feature featherweights Sean Woodson and Luis Saldana

Woodson (9-1) is still a highly-regarded prospect and it appears that the UFC has high hopes for him in the featherweight division. After losing to Julian Erosa by submission in June 2020, Woodson has run off consecutive wins against Youssef Zalal and Collin Anglin.

Saldana (16-7) has only been in the UFC for a little more than a year. He has held the featherweight title in several smaller promotions including Ascendancy and The Fight Series. He is 2-1 in the UFC with wins over Jordan Griffin and Bruno Souza.
