In possibly on the the strangest fight rumors in UFC history, Jorge Masvidal posted an article from the Southland Post that is claiming the will be facing Tyron Woodley for the UFC welterweight title at UFC 215 on August 19th in Seattle, Washington.
Masvidal posted the article and simply wrote “It’s On”.
The article claims that #1 contender, Demian Maia has a injury that will keep him out of competition until the Fall and the UFC and Woodley do not want to wait for him.
Maia has won 7 straight fights in the UFC including beating Masvidal at UFC 211.
Masvidal would be entering the fight off a loss to Maia, while Woodley would be entering the contest off a win over Stephen Thompson.
The UFC nor Woodley has yet to confirm the news.
TheMMATakeover has yet to confirm the news for ourselves and would like to stress that we are just reporting this as a rumor and not confirmed news at this time.
UPDATED: Demian Maia has took to Twitter and denied the stories. He said “Have been reading a lot of crazy rumors today. To make it clear: I’m not injured, have no serious injury whatsoever and didn’t tell @UFC that.”
