Woodley Slams GSP For Alleged Diaz Fight
UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is looking for his big money fight. Woodley drew considerable ire from both fans and UFC president Dana White, after his fight with Demian Maia at UFC 214, feels he should face a top name such as Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz
While Woodley wants those fights, he has been on the shelf since late 2017 due to shoulder surgery. Now, Dana White is interested in making a fight between Diaz and GSP, which sticks in the welterweight champion’s craw.
On his TMZ Sports segment “The Hollywood Beatdown,” Woodley stated that “I think that those two guys ‘contemplating’ fighting is the hugest b**** move on the planet,” Woodley said.
“If you’re going to be welterweight champion of the world and the lineal champion and you got the current champion constantly talking about fighting you, not only do you avoid fighting him and go up a weight class, now you’re gonna drop underneath him and fight underneath in a weight class that you’ve never fought in your life.”
Woodley also discussed his desire to fight Diaz, and how he was willing to make the fight before his shoulder surgery.
“Nate Diaz, I was gonna fight him without even having shoulder surgery back in December,” Woodley claimed.
“So, the question mark to me is are you fans just gonna keep riding with these guys that claim they’ll fight anybody anytime? And they constantly avoided me.”
