Tyron Woodley responds to the latest comments made by UFC President Dana White over the fact that the UFC boss thinks he doesn’t want to fight.

Woodley’s next fight has been delayed to the first quarter of 2019 after he underwent surgery for a hand injury. The UFC welterweight champion is expected to fight former interim welterweight champion Colby Covington. However, there’s been problems with making this fight a reality.

It’s no secret the UFC President is not a fan of Woodley and made that clear since he became the champ. Woodley addressed White’s recent statements about him while on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. This is where he noted that he needs to be cleared in order to fight in January.

Woodley Fires Back

“I’ve agreed to fight Colby. I’ve agreed to fight really anybody that’s the funny part,” Woodley said (H/T to MMAFighting). “I just asked for a little more time before I can confirm [my hand is good to go]. I’ve never said no to January 26. Let’s get that on record. I actually want to fight in Anaheim.

I’ve stepped up for the UFC many, many, many times. But at one point, you need to start monitoring your legacy, monitoring your title run, monitoring the way you want to be remembered. I don’t want to be remembered as a guy that lost a fight to Colby Covington. Or anybody else, because he knew he wasn’t 100 percent. 

The UFC welterweight champion made one thing perfectly clear. He’s a prizefighter. Thus, fighting is his job and the main source of income for his family.

“I don’t make money if I don’t fight,” Woodley concluded. “If y’all think I want to sit around, and you think I make enough money in music, or TV, or movies, you guys have got life messed up. I make my money in fighting. That’s where I do the best at. I recognize it’s my season right now, and that’s what I’m prepared to do.”

This past week, UFC President Dana White had some harsh comments about UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington.

A fight between Woodley and Covington has been targeted for quite some time. Woodley and Covington have both had issues that have prevented the bout from actually happening. During UFC 231 fight week, White said that he questions whether or not Woodley or Covington actually want to fight. 

Now, Covington has gotten his opportunity to respond to those comments. He joined “Ariel Helwani MMA Show” today (Mon. December 10, 2018) and said he’s not worried about what White – or anyone for that matter – is saying or doing (via MMA News):

“Me and Dana, we’ve never had a relationship. I leave that between him and my agent Dan Lambert. They have a relationship, they do the business. I’m here, Dana White knows what’s good for business. I am what’s good for business.

“I’m the biggest fight in the division right now. I’m the numbers, that’s why everyone is calling my name. They want to fight me, they don’t even want to fight anybody else. They want me. I just keep Dana White like, he is who he is I am who I am.

“I’m doing what I’m doing, he’s doing what he’s doing. I’m not focused on what he’s doing or what he’s saying – I’m focused on what I’m doing. And I got one thing to say, just like Scarface said, ‘I got my balls and I got my word, and I don’t break them for nobody.’”

Covington won the UFC interim welterweight championship this past summer when he defeated Rafael dos Anjos. It was believed that the victory would finally allow Covington and Woodley to match-up and settle their differences, unifying their welterweight titles. However, Covington couldn’t make the date offered by the UFC, and Woodley defended his title against Darren Till at UFC 228 instead.

Now, Woodley must wait for a doctor’s clearance to see if he can fight again soon following a recent injury. Whether or not he’s matched up against Covington next remains to be seen.

Over the summer, Colby Covington seemingly secured a fight with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

He defeated former 155-pound champion Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight title. However, issues from both sides prevented that fight from happening immediately. As a result, Covington is no longer recognized as interim champion, and Woodley has since defended his title successfully against Darren Till.

Recently, Woodley took to Instagram Live and promised fans that he’ll fight Colby “Queefington” shut him up for good (via MMANYTT):

“I am fighting ‘Queefington’,” Woodley said. “When I’m fighting his little busted butt I don’t know. Hopefully sooner than later cause I know you all sick and tired of this dumb goofass videos that nobody’s f–king with, that don’t nobody think is funny, besides his dumbass.

“I know you all tired of him so sooner than you know, he will be getting that ass whooped and then you won’t have to worry about him no more. Because after I beat his ass, I promise you with everything I believe in, everything I love, everything I ride for, he will be very, very unlikely to want to talk s–t again.”

The UFC would like to get Woodley back into the Octagon son, however, “The Chosen One” is still nursing an injured thumb at the moment. He’ll likely be sidelined for the next few months. With UFC 233 right around the corner, and the promotion desperate for a main event, the idea of doing Covigton vs. Kamaru Usman for an interim title has been floated.

However, it looks like Woodley would take issue with this, and wants the next crack at Covington before anyone else.
