Vicente Locke: It’s a big battle. It is logical that this battle is happening now.
“Woodley is a former champ. He’s not in good shape at the moment, but he’s still too dangerous.
“He’s had many great wins in his career and I’m on a new winning streak. I’m hungry for a title shot.
“We both have something to prove. He wants to be a champ again, and I want to show that I can do that too and be one of the most dominant fighters in our weight class.”
“I think now is the perfect time for this fight. Fans shouldn’t miss this.”
