Former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley finally returns for a huge fight on foreign soil as he takes on one of Europe's hottest prospects

Woodley has had a tough 2019. He entered the year as UFC welterweight champion with four title defences behind him. However he was ultimately dominated by new and current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 235, losing via unanimous decision. He was then scheduled to face former champ Robbie Lawler at UFC on ESPN 3, but was forced to withdraw due to injury.
