UFC 171 adds Condit vs. Woodley

Welterweight Tyron Woodley will get his wish.

After UFC President Dana White initially denied Woodley’s requests to face former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit at UFC 171 on March 15 in Dallas, the promotion has revealed that the fight will take place after all.

White tried to set up a rematch between Condit and Nick Diaz, but after Diaz passed on the bout to stay retired, Woodley was tabbed for the bout.
