LAS VEGAS – Tyron Woodley was very against heading into enemy territory to fight Leon Edwards but ultimately took the fight and will headline UFC on ESPN+ 29 in London. It’s a decision that Woodley’s manager, Abraham Kawa, says the former welterweight champion made because he’s eager to get back in the octagon. “I think Tyron looked at the landscape, and he said to himself, ‘OK, I got to get back to the mix of things,” Kawa told MMA Junkie. “We forget: Tyron always fought the No. 1 contender every single time … when we’re now living in the day and age of everybody (calling out) the big superstar, we pick and choose who it’s OK for and who it’s not OK for.” Woodley (19-4-1 MMA, 9-3-1 UFC) has not competed since losing the 170-pound title to Kamaru Usman last March at UFC 235
