What Is Tyron Woodley Threatening To Do To Colby Covington?
Former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley has hurled quite the threat Colby Covington’s way.
Woodley is scheduled to take on Covington in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 36 on September 19. The welterweight collision will be held inside the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. This bout is a long time coming between the two former American Top Team teammates.
In a chat with his fans during a live stream on Instagram, Woodley revealed that he’s more than willing to bend the rules against “Chaos” if he can get away with it (h/t BJPenn.com).
“I agree with you, I will let my hands go. You guys and you fans telling me ‘let your hands go, let your hands go,’ I need to let them go. You have that, you have my word I will let these hands go. 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.”
Covington has gone full tilt with his MAGA shtick and he even began to take aim at his own teammates. Once Woodley began splitting his gym time with Roufusport, “Chaos” fired off verbal jabs at “The Chosen One.”
Woodley has enlisted the help of BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal ahead of his bout with Covington. Masvidal was once a friend of Covington until the two began trading insults through the media. Covington is no longer training at ATT as a result of his feuds with teammates.
Woodley is hoping to avoid his third loss in a row. He has suffered back-to-back one-sided unanimous decision defeats to Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns. Covington is looking to rebound from his December 14, 2019 defeat to “The Nigerian Nightmare.” It was just the second loss in Covington’s pro MMA career.
