UFC President Dana White has revealed the full line-up for the promotion’s May 30 card. The event, which will be UFC on ESPN 9 (airing on the main ESPN network), also has a location. As previously revealed, the May 30 event will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, White said.

Of course, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has to meet on May 27 to make that official. But approval for the promotion is starting to feel like an eventuality rather than a question.

White also revealed the full roster of fights slated for UFC on ESPN 9 during an interview with the sports network and UFC broadcaster on Friday. Among them, the previously announced welterweight main event of Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns.
