    Tyron Woodley will be defending his UFC welterweight title on March 2nd.

    ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported on Sunday that Woodley is going to fight Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in Las Vegas, Nevada. That obviously means that Colby Covington, who won an interim title last June, has lost his spot at the front of the line despite beating both Demian Maia and Rafael dos Anjos before Usman did.

    I agree but what's the logical reason for him not fighting Tyrone?

    How will Usman pressure Woodley? How can he? What angle can he work?
    The problem Woodley presents for many ww is that he is too good a counter puncher. And he's too good a wrestler to get taken down without someone first putting mad pressure on him or get him to wade forward focused on fireworks. He doesn't throw a lot and it's of very limited variety but he knows his timing, he knows his distances.

    There is no logical reason. The most they can come up with is he posted some cringeworthy stuff.

    Never thought “in the feels” would be an offensive maneuver until Colby did it
