Although a Tyron Woodley vs. Colby Covington title-unification bout seemed like the obvious next direction for the UFC welterweight division, a twist involving Darren Till has now emerged.

Earlier today, Till (17-0-1 MMA, 5-0-1 UFC) took to social media and revealed he’d been offered a title shot against Woodley (18-3-1 MMA, 8-2-1 UFC). He said interim champ Covington (14-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) is “out” and that the promotion wanted to book him against “The Chosen One” instead, but the fight was declined (via Twitter)

Good. Guy clearly lost to Thompson and didn't even make weight. Rematch VS Thompson makes most sense. I think Woodley should hold firm on this.

I just don't want to see him fight Wonderboy again...I'm not a fan of either and the combination of the 2 just resulted in a shifty fight. I don't want to see that again.

Missed weight 2/6 fights in ufc. He needs to make weight before he’s considered for a title shot. If they’re rewarding fighters for not making weight, what’s the point of even having weigh ins?!

100%

A lot of fighters need to change the way they cut weight...they will still be great, maybe greater!
