With Matt Brown ruled out, Tyron Woodley wants Carlos Condit at UFC 171
UFC President Dana White expects Carlos Condit to fight at UFC 171, most likely in a No. 1 contender’s bout, and Matt Brown has been ruled out of a possible opponent. As a result, Tyron Woodley sees an opportunity.
After long-reigning champion Georges St-Pierre vacated his title and announced an indefinite break from the sport on Friday, White said Johny Hendricks (15-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) and Robbie Lawler (22-9 MMA, 7-3 UFC) will headline UFC 171 and fight for the vacant belt.
UFC 171 takes place March 15 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and MMAjunkie.
