Tyron Woodley will face Kamaru Usman at UFC 235, then Colby Covington in June
The undefeated UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley had some awesome fights last year as he beat many ufc stars.
Seems like this year history will repeat as he is too confident that he already choose the second opponent.
As we reported earlier, Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is set to defend the UFC welterweight championship against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 on March 2 in Las Vegas.
The latest update is Tyron Woodley made the following statement regarding his opponents.
“I just recognized that at some point I’m gonna fight all these guys,” Woodley told TMZ Sports recently. “Obviously the world would like to see me f*ck Colby up right quick but I think he’s trying to call shots and he’s not a champ so he can’t really do that. So I’m gonna go out there and fight Kamaru Usman and we’ll see what happens after that. Most likely I‘ll end up fighting Colby next up.”
Covington and Woodley were supposed to fight last fall but when ‘Chaos’ wouldn’t agree to fight Woodley at UFC 228 due to a nasal surgery, the organization stripped him of his interim title.
UFC 235 takes place on March 2 and Woodley is planning his next fight in June at Chicago.
“Yeah, I’ll fight Colby next after that,” Woodley said. “Probably in June. I think they’ve got a fight in Chicago in June. I’m a midwest guy. I train in Milwaukee which is an hour and a half from Chicago, St. Louis is not that far, and I think I’ve got strong roots there as well so it would be a good fight to headline on that card.”
