Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is coming off of an impressive second-round submission victory over Darren Till at UFC 228 and he earlier made it clear that he wanted to headline UFC 230 fight card and defend his title against Colby Covington. But that fight didn’t come into fruition as he had dislocated his thumb and tore three ligaments.

However, there were further talks about Tyron Woodley defending his title against Covington next at UFC 233 in January of 2018 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. But according to Covington’s manager Dan Lambert, he is unsure if Woodley would be ready by then.

The timing on the September fight [at UFC 228] didn’t work for Colby cause he had just had some surgery and it would have been a crazy quick turnaround. They’ve reached out and asked if Colby would be available in January on the 26th show. But not sure if T-Wood’s gonna be available for that show. He’s still getting over some surgery himself on his hand, so I’m not quite sure on when that fight’s gonna be but if I had to guess, it would be on the January or the February show. Could trickle into March depending on T-Wood’s hand.

Covington’s last fought in June where he defeated former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos by unanimous decision to become the new interim welterweight champion.
