Woodley Offers Covington $10K A Takedown
While Dana White eyes Kamaru Usman as his next challenger, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has made an offer to Colby Covington.
Speaking on his weekly TMZ show, The Hollywood Beatdown, Woodley has made a unique challenge to the interim champ.
“He is going to try and come in close, grab the clinch, takedown,” Woodley said, “I promise you, he will not try and stand up with me.”
“I bet you 10 thousand dollars every time you touch my leg for a shot you got to pay me 10 grand. He might not even take me down. I want the people to see what it is for what it is. You want to see these hands. He wants to try and outwrestle me and he can’t even do that. I am challenging you, no wrestling.”
“You touch my leg it is 10 bands. If I touch your leg I’ll give you 20 grand,” Woodley said, throwing his own money in the pot. “So, every time you go for my leg you gotta pay me 10 grand, every time I go for yours it is 20 grand.”
When asked when he’ll return to the Octagon for the first time since beating Darren Till at UFC 228, Woodley is eyeing early next year. “January or March. I don’t know what is going on in February, but they said not February.
“Either January 26 in Anaheim or March in Las Vegas.”
