What have they said?

Woodley has warned Covington that he is willing to strike him illegally to win the bout.

He has implied that he will not be in control of his hands and they could land anywhere in the fight, including his opponent's groin.

He said: "I’ll let them go upside his head, body. I might even punch in the sack for the warning, bap. I will take the warning or even the point deduction, I feel good guys."

The pair were first supposed to fight when Woodley was champion in 2018.

But both men accused the other of not taking up the offer.
