Woodley-Thompson II Set for UFC 209
While the past two days have been filled with squabbling between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson online, it appears that "Wonderboy" will get what he’s asking for: The two will rematch in a welterweight title fight at UFC 209 on March 4.
Woodley confirmed the fight on his podcast "The Morning Wood Show" on Monday after engaging in a lengthy back and forth with Thompson and fans online.
"He got under my skin so much that, you know what — I’m just gonna go ahead and fight this dude," Woodley said.
"Wonderboy you want it, come get it. You want to fight, you want to get done worse than you did the first time?"
Woodley and Thompson first fought at UFC 205 in New York City. The fight was ruled a draw, with Woodley dominating rounds 1 and 4, nearly finishing Thompson in the fourth frame.
