Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley believes there’s a double standard when it comes to the infractions of Conor McGregor and Jon Jones.

Jones was recently charged with battery after some allegations from a strip club waitress earlier this month. Although there are no new details or actual evidence, given the light heavyweight champion’s history, it didn’t take long for many to form an opinion about it.

McGregor, meanwhile, has had his share of problems in the past as well, most recently, being under investigation for an alleged sexual assault. Speaking about the latest Jones infraction, Woodley said he’d prefer to wait for the facts. However, he also observed some differences when it comes to McGregor and Jones:

“We gonna act like Conor doesn’t do that every week?” Woodley asked on TMZ (via MMA News). “And we still want to put him on every fight card; he’s the biggest star. The second Jon Jones does something…

I’m defending the fact that we selectively throw people under the bus. Conor has done way worse things than Jon, and he’s glorified and praised as some Scarface of our sport. So I’m not gonna be too hard on Jon (when) I don’t even know the details.”

When it comes to Jones alone, Woodley has called for people to wait on getting all the details first before passing judgement:

“I’m not gonna give him a pass, either, because it ain’t my job to give the pass out,” Woodley added. “All I’m saying is this: Let’s get all the details first, but let’s not forget there’s a lot of bullshit that go on in our sport that we glorify.”

Do you agree with Woodley?

Tyron Woodley went into more detail about why he was pictured with Jorge Masvidal.

Masvidal knocked Ben Askren out earlier this month at UFC 239 and Woodley received a lot of grief for being pictured with “Gamebred” just a few weeks after that. Woodley and Askren, of course, are close friends, so many were shocked to see the former with Masvidal.

Colby Covington and Dillon Danis notably commented on the issue with Woodley clapping back at them right away. And appearing on TMZ, “The Chosen One” went into more detail about it:

“Alright, let’s get this in. Let me do this,” Woodley said. “I’m a part of First Round Management, okay? Jorge Masvidal is also a part of First Round Management, and so is Jon Jones. So surprisingly, me, Jon, and Jorge have some of the same sponsors. So we was doing a video for cbdMD… and then Jorge Masvidal was in a shoot with me. We trained so many years together.

“Now I wasn’t like, ‘yeah, I’m so happy you knocked my guy the fuck out.’ I’m not thinking that. But I’m thinking like, ‘Am I gonna be mean to him?’ No, I got to do a shoot with him for six hours. [I was] respectful. We had a four-to-six hour shoot, we gotta be around each other. I want to have good energy to make it well.

A couple pictures were taken, boom, boom, you guys all got on these shirts, looked dope, let’s get some product placement. But then I didn’t think about it [like] ‘damn, he knocked out my homie.’ And now, everybody on the internet like, ‘Oh, my god. You’re not a good friend…”

What do you make of the situation?

Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley hit back at Colby Covington and Dillon Danis after they commented on his recent photos with Jorge Masvidal.

Woodley was recently pictured with Masvidal and it became a big deal in the mixed martial arts world. While the two have trained together at American Top Team, Woodley notably grew up with Ben Askren and is one of his close friends. Askren, of course, is coming off a brutal knockout defeat to Masvidal at UFC 239 earlier this month in a feud that got pretty personal.

Covington was the first to comment as he poked fun at the situation given that he himself is “best friends” with Masvidal while having a huge rivalry with Woodley:

Askren didn’t take the joke well as he responded first:

Woodley would then respond to the former UFC interim champion:

Meanwhile, Danis questioned the friendship of Woodley and Askren:

Woodley would respond to him as well:

Woodley would finally explain that he was shooting a commercial with Masvidal and even spoke to Askren beforehand:

What do you make of the entire situation?
