That was quick.
Lower than per week faraway from his loss to Gilbert Burns, which happened final weekend on ESPN, former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley claims he’s already been provided a grudge match towards longtime 170-pound rival, Colby Covington.
“They provided me that combat, I informed them I’m in,” Woodley informed ESPN (transcribed by MMA Preventing). “I imply, I simply don’t wish to discuss lots about Colby as a result of Colby is an actor, man. I do know what he’s doing and it is smart and it’s form of enjoyable to look at however, on the finish of the day, Colby has turned me down 5 – 6 instances. However I believe after shedding two fights back-to-back I believe it might be a time he could settle for it as a result of he might imagine I’m down and out.”
Covington can also be coming off a loss, having been stopped by Kamaru Usman of their welterweight title combat at UFC 245 final December. “Chaos” claims he’s already moved on from his Woodley feud and as an alternative desires to tangle with former finest pal Jorge Masvidal.
“Preventing Colby proper now’s like combating this race battle,” Woodley continued. “This brutality and simply the unsettling local weather of our tradition. I’m simply going to take it as that. So, they’ve provided me Colby and I as soon as once more have accepted once more and we’ll see what occurs.”
Covington has but to remark.
