Tyron Woodley Promised Title Shot After UFC 192 Cancellation

In the wake of Johny Hendricks‘ weight cutting issues forcing the UFC 192 co-main event’s cancellation, Tyron Woodley is an unsuspecting benefactor. Though the winner of the fight was expected to get a title shot, even with the fight’s cancellation, Woodley says he has been promised a shot at the winner of Robbie Lawler vs. Carlos Condit.

Lawler is scheduled to put his belt up against Condit at UFC 195 on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.

Tyron-woodley-750Woodley (15-3) has won four out of his last five fights, including a victory over Condit. He defeated Kelvin Gastelum and Dong Hyun Kim in his two most recent bouts.

With the Hendricks vs. Woodley bout scrapped, a preliminary bout between top flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov has been promoted to the pay-per-view main card.
