Report: Tyron Woodley to Fight Vicente Luque Next
By FCF Staff
Since Woodley (19-6-1) lost the belt to Kamaru Usman in March, 2019, he has also been defeated by Gilbert Burns and Colby Covington.
More recently, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported that sources have indicated the UFC is finalizing a bout between Woodley and Luque for March 27th. UFC 260 is scheduled to take place on that date at a location that has yet to be determined.
Luque (19-7-1) has won two in a row since he dropped a decision to Stephen Thompson in November, 2019. Since then the aggressive fighter has recorded stoppages over Niko Price and Randy Brown.
UFC 260 will also feature heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic taking on Francis Ngannou, and featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski versus Brian Ortega.
