Like many UFC fighters these days, former welterweight champ Tyron Woodley wants the promotion to give him an answer. An answer, that is, on whether he’s “shooting the fade” in stepping in to fight at UFC 249, and preferably against rival Colby Covington. On Saturday, Woodley took to Instagram to nudge his promoter about the April 18 fight card, which has yet to receive an official city and venue. UFC President Dana White has vowed...

Gilbert Burns says if Tyron Woodley really wants to fight at UFC 249 as he claims, he will sign a contract and stop putting a “show” on social media. Ever since Woodley’s (19-4-1 MMA, 9-3-1 UFC) UFC on ESPN+ 29 main event with Leon Edwards fell apart due to the coronavirus outbreak, the former UFC welterweight champ has been angling to get on the makeshift UFC 249 card on April 18, which still does not...

At one point, some started to wonder if Stephen Thompson still had it. But that quickly changed after his most recent performance. Heading into his fight against Vicente Luque this past November at UFC 244, Thompson (15-4-1 MMA, 10-4-1 UFC) was coming off back-to-back losses and had been knocked out for the first time in his career by former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. His performance against Luque ended up being one of the finest...

At this point nobody knows what the hell is going to happen with UFC 249 later this month. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White would lead you to believe UFC 249 is going down without a hitch, but the problems keep piling up like a used car on its final leg. Outside of still needing an actual location to construct an Octagon and host UFC 249 in its entirety, White now has to deal...

For the past few days, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, has received some unwarranted criticism for pulling out of his title fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 on April 18. In fact, Ferguson even called for “The Eagle” to be stripped of his title. But according to the reigning 155-pound champion, he never actually pulled out of the fight. To hear Khabib tell it, even he hasn’t been told where UFC...
