However, as per UFC President Dana White, the promotion is looking to reschedule the highly-awaited Welterweight clash between Woodley and Edwards once things get back to normal and the promotion picks up business as usual.
Tyron Woodley vs Leon Edwards being rescheduled
While speaking to Kevin Iole recently, UFC President Dana White stated that his promotion will be re-booking all the fights that have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. White said that the UFC will be rolling back in business once the Khabib vs Ferguson is done with and everybody will be fighting because they want to, not because they have to.
“All these fights are being rescheduled. Once we get the Khabib fight on, we’re rolling, man. We’re back in business, and we’re rolling. And like I told you earlier, everybody is going to fight because they want to, not because they have to."- White told Kevin Iole (transcribed by MMA Junkie).
When can we expect Woodley vs Edwards?
As of now, we still don't know for a fact what the UFC has in store for their scheduled events, but given everything gets back to normal, Edwards vs Woodley could possibly take place before the end of the year.Published 25 Mar 2020, 15:46 IST
