UFC President Dana White has now confirmed welterweight stud, Kamaru Usman will definitely be fighting for the welterweight strap at UFC 235 in March.
However, what still remains unclear is his opponent. Rather cryptically, there has been no mention if he will face current kingpin, Tyron Woodley or someone else in some sort of interim arrangement.
Unconfirmed reports initially surfaced earlier this month via Usman’s Twitter account where he posted a copy of a signed bout agreement and poked at Woodley about the matchup.
Now (initially reported by MMAJunkie), White has confirmed a title fight will be happening.
Time will tell over the coming weeks around the “radio silence” from Woodley and whether he will be signing up for the contest himself.
