With the highly-anticipated Khabib
Nurmagomedov
Tony
Ferguson
clash likely to be canceled for a fifth time, Tyron
Woodley
is offering his services to help save UFC 249.

The former welterweight champion revealed on Twitter that he has
given his management permission to pursue a spot on the April 18
card. Woodley has targeted longtime rival Colby
Covington
as a potential opponent.

Woodley was supposed to face Leon
Edwards
in the UFC London main event on March 21, but that card
was postponed due to coronavirus concerns. The promotion is still
planning to hold UFC 249, but a venue and location for the event
has not been announced. Many states and countries have placed
restrictions on travel and gatherings due to the global
pandemic.

Nurmagomedov recently revealed that travel restrictions in Russia
due to the COVID-19 outbreak would likely prevent him from
competing at UFC 249. The promotion is reportedly exploring a new
main event that would pit Ferguson against Justin
Gaethje
instead, but currently nothing has been finalized.
