However a couple of days ago, #2 ranked welterweight contender, undefeated Darren Till claimed that he was offered the title shot against Woodley as Covington was injured.

Covington quickly cleared the air saying he has certain health issues to be taken care of and the Woodley fight is on for late 2018 particularly for the New York card in November.

‘The Choas’ however has his timeline sorted and has a plan B if the Woodley fight does not happen.

“If Tyron Woodley gets cold feet, which I think he will, deep down inside he knows what I used to do to him, he knows I took his soul at American Top Team. So, if he gets cold feet and he backs out, then I guess the perfect storyline that make sense for the pay-per-view is Toronto against that little syrup sucker (Georges St-Pierre),” Covington continued.

“He’s been seeing aliens, he’s been doing all kinds of things. Who knows what’s going on in that guy’s head. But he has expressed interest in wanting another fight, so if TyQuil can’t come together and get his grip together to sign a contract, then I guess I’m going after GSP in Canada.”

Former welterweight and middleweight champ Georges St-Pierre last fought at UFC 217 in November last year when he defeated Michael Bisping to become the middleweight champion. There were rumours of a possible fight between St-Pierre and Nate Diaz at 155 pounds at UFC 227. However the fight obviously will not happen. St-Pierre has not fought since then.
