For many months, UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley has traded words with UFC President Dana White. But now, Woodley says he wants it all to end.
As reported by MMA Mania, during a recent TMZ appearance, Woodley says he’s looking to end his beef with White and focus on defending his UFC title.
“I’m squashing everything,” Woodley said. “I’m focusing on getting the shoulder together. One-by-one, everybody will get these hands. I don’t know the order. I don’t know who’s next. But I never wanted to bounce around and not continue to defend my belt. I’ve been here for a while and I plan on knocking everybody out.”
For about a year now, Woodley has gone at it with his boss over Woodley’s desire to compete in money bouts. Woodley was rumored to be the opponent for Georges St Pierre in the latter’s return to the UFC Octagon; however, White gave GSP to Michael Bisping following Woodley’s critically-appalling title bout with Demian Maia at UFC 214 back in July.
More recently, Woodley claimed that he was likely to face Nate Diaz in Diaz’s first bout back in the UFC since 2016. White responded by calling Woodley a liar and it all blew up from there. Woodley’s desire for bigger fights has earned him the range from several welterweight contenders, including Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington.
I’m going to take a woosa. So if you people want to know about the Dana beef, about the Frankenstein beef, about the Queefington beef, I don’t want to talk about it. I’m focusing on being successful.
