Here is a return that we didn’t anticipate so untimely! Former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is anticipated to return to the octagon on March 27 to struggle Vicente Luque.
At least that is what pronounces ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, as there have been questions on whether or not Woodley would return after his final TKO loss to Colby Covington final September. The duel ‘Woodley vs. Luque ‘has not but been formalized by the UFC.
For his return, Tyron Woodley may have the heavy job of attempting to finish a tragic sequence of three defeats in a row, successively conceded in opposition to Kamaru Usman (who took the title from him), Gilbert Burns, and due to this fact Covington. During his reign, the previous 170-pound champion had crushed Stephen Thompson, Demian Maia, and Darren Till.
Despite his former rank, this job doesn’t look simple in opposition to a Luque who’s on a very good dynamic of two wins, knockouts on Randy Brown and Niko Price.
As a reminder, UFC 260 will characteristic two headlining title fights, the heavyweight one between champion Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou, in addition to the featherweight duel ‘Volkanovski vs. Ortega ‘.
