UFC's Tyron Woodley Guarantees Fight in 2019 ... Working On Opponent

UFC superstar Tyron Woodley says his hand is just about healed up and he's ready to punch faces again -- telling TMZ Sports he expects to get back in the Octagon before the end of the year.
Woodley was supposed to fight Robbie Lawler on June 29 -- but had to pull out because his hand was still jacked up from a previous fight.
But, good news! Woodley says "I'm good now" -- and he's working with the UFC to line up his next opponent.
"They offered me a couple of fights the last couple days so you should see me in there pretty soon."
Tyron wouldn't name potential opponents -- but said he's still gunning to get a rematch with Kamaru Usman, who defeated him back in March to win the UFC welterweight belt.
"I want my belt back. That's the fight I want the most."
Besides Kamaru, the top names in Tyron's division are guys like Colby Covington, Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards ... which would all be great fights.
In the meantime, Tyron says he's training his ass off -- and gunning to work with legends like Georges St-Pierre and the Diaz Brothers.
"If I'm not gonna fight them ... why not train with them?"
