The UK cancelled all upcoming sporting events, including March 21’st UFC London. But UFC president Dana White is insistent that an event will go on, and he’s pulling out all the stops to make it happen.
The main event between Tyron Woodley and Leon Edwards has been cancelled. Woodley confirmed his desire to compete.
”Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, I am fighting Saturday,” Woodley declared.
"I am fighting Saturday. Who I'm fighting? I don't know." – @TWooodley who just conducted an Instagram live stream.

“Appreciate you fans. I’m fighting Saturday. Who I’m fighting, I don’t know. 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**k. I’ve been training, I’m in pure murder mode.”
”There’s so many fighters … “Any time, any place, any where” … until it’s f**king me. Where’s Nate and Nick Diaz? Where’s Cowboy Cerrone? Where’s Conor McGregor? Where are these fighters? Where’s Colby Covington? F**k, where’s Usman at? I don’t want to fight people that don’t make sense. I’m not in here to give somebody else a name. I’m not here for somebody, This is my one and only chance to get to the top!”
“I was a five time world f**king champion, don’t forget it. I hate to have to remind people. I am geared for f**king war.”
America’s Champ has let the @ufc know he’s available to #KAG and slap the shit out of @twooodley live on @espn for the people! Someone let Tyrone know. That dip shit has me blocked on all platforms because my words “hurt his precious little feelings.” 🇺🇸🦅🇺🇸

Woodley made it clear he doubts Covington is serious about fighting.
”There’s a lotta people out there that are just straight clout chasing, attention seeking b*tches,” Woodley said. “Colby, you a b*tch. Don’t ever open your f**king mouth … He put all this s**t on the internet about him wanting to fight me and I said yes immediately. That’s the fight that made the most sense anyway. That’s the fight I was supposed to get before Leon Edwards and they said he couldn’t fight because of his jaw. The second they booked the fight with me and Leon, now all of a sudden his jaw is healthy, he can fight. He a b*tch, he want attention, he dodged me four f**king times so I didn’t even want to talk about Colby, he’s a f**king bitch, he scared.”
”Colby Covington is my number one choice”, stated Woodley.
