Woodson (7-0-0) will fight Jared Gordon (15-4-0) on the May 16 card in Jacksonville, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Woodson wasn't originally planned to face Gordon, as it was originally announced that Gordon would square off against Matt Sayles. Obviously, the change in location due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 has changed things around, resulting in an opponent change. Woodson collected a victory in his first fight following his entrance into the UFC via the Contender Series, and he will aim to use his 6-foot-2 height to his advantage to keep his professional record unblemished.
Impressive win in UFC debut

Woodson defeated Kyle Bochniak via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Boston.
ANALYSIS
A product of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series, Woodson had zero issues with Bochniak in his official company debut. In addition to stuffing 14-of-15 takedown attempts from his opponent, Woodson landed nearly three times (150-52) as many total strikes as Bochniak. This was a blowout from the start and only got worse as the fight progressed. A win over Bochniak means little in the grand scheme of things, but Woodson, who is massive for the featherweight division at 6-foot-2, is going to give a whole bunch of 145-pounders problems with his size and length.

Woodson will face off against Kyle Bochniak at UFC Boston on Oct. 18, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Woodson, who holds a 6-0 record in MMA, will make his first appearance at UFC in Boston on Oct. 18 since being awarded a contract with the knockout of Terrance McKinney in Round 2 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. Woodson's battle mate, Bochniak, will be looking to revenge his last two losses with a win on his home stomping grounds in Boston.

Woodson defeated Terrance McKinney via KO (flying knee) in Round 2 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. He was one of three fighters to be awarded a UFC contract at the event.
ANALYSIS
UFC President Dana White made it loud and clear he is looking for finishes, and Woodson delivered with just that. He spent much of the first round fighting off rear-naked choke attempts, but the multiple takedowns executed by McKinney allowed Woodson to time out a precise knee when McKinney looked to do the same in the second period. Not only did Woodson secure a highlight-reel finish, but he did so stepping in on late notice for an injured Adli Edwards. Those two combined were more than enough to get the boss's attention. Moving forward, it appears he'll need to work on his takedown defense, but does have some potential at the age of 27. If Woodson can continue to make 146 pounds at his frame (6-2, 79-inch reach), he'll pose matchup problems for many in the division.
