Tyron Woodley Wants to Fight Saturday Regardless of Location

The coronavirus has taken its toll across the entire globe. Store shelves are empty, schools are closed, and more and more cases of positive tests are being revealed. Nevertheless, the UFC has been making efforts to continue functioning at a high capacity. The virus’s impact has caused UFC London to be canceled. However, the main eventer Tyron Woodley has announced that he will be fighting no matter what, and hopefully, it’s against Colby Covington.

In the eyes of the UFC and many of its fighters, having the ability to continue fighting is a good thing. For the majority of competitors, it’s their only source of income. And for UFC President Dana White, when guys want to fight, he will let them. Of course, not without heavily monitoring the situation to make sure it’s safe first.

Woodley Expresses Wanting to Fight

Tyron recently decided to go live on his Instagram account. During the conversation, he expressed his desire to still want to fight. Even though he would need a new opponent in less than a week’s notice. Not only does Woodley still want to fight, but he also has an opponent in mind; Colby Covington.

“Appreciate you fans. I’m fighting Saturday. Who I’m fighting, I don’t know,” said Woodley.

“I was willing to go to London, actually I was supposed to be flying out today in four hours to go to London. Only one of my cornermen was going to make it and that’s it and my videographer and homey … those were the only two who were gonna corner me. I was gonna go out there with two people into an empty arena, I don’t give a f*ck. I’ve been training, I’m in pure murder mode.”

Making Woodley vs Covington

Whenever Woodley speaks, so does Colby Covington. Colby appeared to have thrown his name in the mix as a potential opponent on Twitter.

After Covington’s response, Woodley replied with a response of his own. He primarily stated that Colby is just throwing his name out for attention. He believes that Covington doesn’t truly want to fight and that if he does, Woodley would accept the bout under any circumstances.

Do fans want to see the matchup between Woodley and Covington?
