Champ Tyron Woodley targets UFC 230 turnaround, possibly Colby Covington

DALLAS – UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley anticipates a call from the promotion next week to sketch out his next step, even if, he said, “They already know what they want to do.”

Woodley’s (19-3-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) plan after halting the quick rise of Darren Till (17-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) is to continue to fight whomever the UFC wants, knocking down any contender that crosses his path.

“What needs to happen is, they’re going to call my manager, they’re going to make me an offer for a fight, and if it makes sense for me, it’s going to happen,” he said.

But if the promotion wants him to make a quick turnaround, Woodley added he’s game to fill a vacant spot atop UFC 230, which takes place Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

“The more I fight, the better I get and more confident I get,” Woodley said after submitting Till in the pay-per-view headliner of Saturday’s event at American Airlines Center in Dallas. “So I want to stay as active as possible. If Nov. is the date they’re looking for a main event, I think they’ve got their guy.”

It took less than one hour for Woodley’s longtime antagonist, former interim champ Colby Covington (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC), to goad him into a fight at UFC 230.
