When Tyron Woodley was out for an extended period of time, Colby Covington won the interim belt. However, when it was title unification time, Covington said he needed time to recover from injury, and Woodley defended vs. Till; Covington lost the interim belt, but was widely believed to be the #1 contender. Then Kamaru Usman shone, and UFC president Dana White mused that The Nigerian Nightmare was next for a title shot.

Then Usman tweeted that he had a signed contract. A bitter Twitter quarrel ensued.

This one may not be over for a while.
