UFC 235 has added another world title fight as UFC welterweight champion Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley will defend his title against another top contender in his division Kamaru ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ Usman at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 2nd March.

Although, it was former interim champion Colby Covington who was supposed to fight for the title considering he has beaten Rafael Dos Anjos and Demain Maia before Usman did.

Woodley vs Usman

The news was broken by Ariel Helwani of ESPN and according to him, the UFC was unhappy with Colby Covington not fighting Tyron Woodley.

Kamaru Usman’s manager Ali Abdelaziz had also hinted on Social Media about the deal being signed for Usman vs. Woodley.

Woodley has been on a six-fight winning streak ever since losing to Robbie Lawler at UFC 174 back in 2014. He won the Welterweight title by knocking out Robbie Lawler at UFC 201 and has defended his title four times since with his most recent win coming against Darren Till at UFC 228.

Meanwhile, Usman has won thirteen straight fights, with his most recent win coming against Rafael dos Anjos in November.

Here’s the moment where Dana White made his mind to give Kamaru Usman a title shot against Tyron Woodley over Colby Covington.
