UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley who got shoulder injury is ready to take a challenge if Nate Diaz is his Foe.
Out of all the speculation rumors, it seems that none other than Tyron Woodley has emerged as a possible contender for the returning Diaz.
Woodley told Brett Okamoto of ESPN on Wednesday that he is healthy enough to defend his title against Diaz at UFC 219.

“If Nate wants to go UFC 219, I’m ready,”
As per sources, the UFC has looked into the possibility of a 170-pound title fight between Woodley (18-3) and Nate Diaz, but no deal has locked yet.
Diaz (19-11) hasn’t fought since he lost to Conor McGregor Via close majority decision at UFC 202 in August 2016 in the welterweight division. This bout drew the biggest pay-per-view buys in UFC history.
Tyron Woodley, a two-time defending champion, has openly talked openly about a desire for “legacy” and “Money” fights. An end-of-the-year matchup with Diaz would qualify.
There is no deal in place for Diaz Vs. Woodley, but both fighters have intimated on social media that they are training for UFC 219.
UFC 219 event is scheduled for December 30th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
