Is Tyron Woodley set to fight Leon Edwards after all?

Share This Post

Throughout recent weeks there have been a number of reports stating that the UFC are looking to match former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley up with top contender Leon Edwards.

Following quickly after the initial reports, it was suggested that Woodley was refusing the bout as he didn’t want to travel to London for a fight, going as far as to state that he would only go to the city on vacation. However that all seemed to change on Christmas Day.

Woodley would post a message for Edwards onto Instagram including the hashtags “UFCLondon” and “March21”, both obviously referring to the event scheduled at the O2 Arena in early 2020.

“Merry Christmas @leon_edwardsmma watch what you ask for. Now you about to get fucked clean up at the crib!”

Woodley vs Edwards?

It’s not entirely clear what brought on the change of heart from Woodley, however the bout now seems to be official, we’ll be seeing Woodley take on Edwards at UFC London in what should be a very important fight for the welterweight division.

Woodley is the former champion, a man who hasn’t fought since losing his belt back in March. It will have been over a year since his last fight when he takes Edwards on in London, a man who has been on an absolute tear in the division over the past couple of years. It wouldn’t surprise me to see the UFC bill this fight as a title eliminator, follwing Kamaru Usman’s recent victory over former top contender Colby Covington.

If Woodley wins it wouldn’t surprise me to see the UFC line him up for a title shot, given his recent run as champion, however it also wouldn’t surprise me to see the UFC force Woodley into another couple of victories before giving him another sniff at the belt, given the poor relationship between the two.

Either way, the fight now seems to be official, so we’ll be seeing Tyron Woodley take on Leon Edwards at UFC London on March 21st.
