Both Usman and Covington have been angling for a shot at Woodley’s welterweight belt ever since Tyron smashed Darren Till at UFC 228 back in Sept. … but it wasn’t clear who was gonna get the first crack.
Tyron tells us he signed his deal to fight Usman on March 2 in Las Vegas — and WHEN he gets the victory, the plan is to get right back into fight camp to prep for Covington.
Colby is currently the #1 ranked welterweight contender, Usman is #2.
We asked Tyron if he’s got a fight strategy for Usman yet … and shocker, it’s violent.
Woodley is currently out in Hawaii where he’s been shooting an episode of “Hawaii Five-0” … and training with fellow UFC superstar Max Holloway.
