Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has unveiled the poster for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 171 event, which is set to go down on March 21 inside O2 Arena in London, England, which will air exclusively on ESPN+.
The event will be headlining by a pivotal Welterweight bout, as former division champion, Tyron Woodley, will face off against Leon Edwards. It was a tough fight to lock down, as “The Chosen One” wasn’t too keen on flying all the way to London for a fight. Especially against a man who he doesn’t seem to respect too much.
Nevertheless, the contracts have been signed and the fight will soon be delivered. The winner will likely earn himself a shot at the title later this year after current division king, Kamaru Usman, faces top contender, Jorge Masvidal, in July.
