Woodley-Edwards To Headline UFC London
Tyron Woodley will travel across the pond this March, as he will head into unfriendly territory to face Leon Edwards at UFC London.
The fight has been rumored for some time, but Woodley seemed hesitant in flying to England, but per a report from MMA Fighting and UFC President Dana White, the former welterweight champion will face Edwards inside the O2 Arena on March 21st.
Riding an eight-fight winning streak with names such as Rafael dos Anjos, Gunnar Nelson, and Donald Cerrone on it, a win over Woodley may put Edwards on the fast track to a shot at Kamaru Usman.
This will be Woodley’s first fight since losing the title to Usman last March, following three successful defenses against Stephen Thompson, Demian Maia, and Darren Till.
