Tyron Woodley Calls Out Conor McGregor And Nate Diaz For UFC Fight On Saturday
Tyron Woodley has called for a showdown against Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz for THIS Saturday following the cancellation of his UFC London bout versus Leon Edwards.
The scheduled UFC London main-event clash between Woodley and Edwards has been cancelled due to the implications of the coronavirus outbreak.
The event is set to go ahead but in America with Woodley insisting he will fight on Saturday, and he's eyeing a few UFC superstars as his potential opponent.
He called out McGregor, Diaz, Donald Cerrone and UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, but he's set his sights on arch-rival Colby Covington, who issued a scathing message to him on social media.
Word on the street is @LeonScott is out. The @ufc and America need a hero. Who wants see America's Champ put the #MAGA cape on and beat the fuck out of @twooodley live on @ESPN next week for your entertainment and my own personal pleasure? :flag_us::flag_us:

"I am fighting Saturday. Appreciate you fans. I'm fighting Saturday," Woodley explained in a video message.
"Who I'm fighting, I don't know. I was willing to go to London, actually I was supposed to be flying out today in four hours to go to London.
