The upcoming UFC London card, which was scheduled to take place on March 21st, is currently in jeopardy after Dana White was forced to pull the card and move it to the States due to the UK facing a travel ban during the coronavirus outbreak crisis.

Leon Edwards, who was set to fight Tyron Woodley in the main event of UFC London, decided to excuse himself from the fight because he said travelling at this time of crisis would be too difficult for his team.

Despite the fact that Edwards pulled out, Woodley still wants to fight on the card and called out Colby Covington specifically.

Covington immediately offered himself up to fight Woodley in a pair of NSFW posts on Twitter.

It’s unclear if the fight card will still happen considering most cities are beginning to go on lockdown due to the coronavirus crisis.
