The co-main event for UFC 235 is set, as Tyron Woodley defends his UFC welterweight title for the fifth time on March 2 against Kamaru Usman at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
UFC 235 airs live on pay-per-view. Tickets go on sale on February 1.
Champion of the 170-pound weight class since his knockout of Robbie Lawler in July 2016, Missouri's Woodley has since turned back the challenges of Stephen Thompson (twice), Demian Maia and Darren Till to cement his place atop the division, and he doesn't plan on giving up his crown anytime soon. Former Ultimate Fighter winner Usman has other ideas, and with a perfect 9-0 UFC record that has seen him defeat the likes of Leon Edwards, Maia and Rafael Dos Anjos, "The Nigerian Nightmare" has proven that he's ready for his moment in the championship spotlight.
