UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is on the hunt for a super-fight. After defending his title from multiple top contenders within the division, the fighter is now seemingly looking to branch out and face off against other competitors. That being said, it would appear that the UFC is not offering enough money to entice one of the champion’s possible opponents.
While Tyron Woodley has been looking to face former welterweight champion and now reigning middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre inside the octagon, there is another fighter that has been on Woodley mind as of late.
Rumors were swirling that Woodley and UFC superstar Nate Diaz may end up inside the octagon together. However, Diaz has since turned down the fight offer.
Speaking on Submission Radio, Diaz’s longtime boxing coach Richard Perez offered some insight into the situation. The coach went on to explain that Diaz was not being offered enough money from the UFC to feel enticed to face off against Tyron Woodley.
“They have to cough up the money.” said Perez. “They are being too greedy with the money right now. It’s hurting a lot of fighters.”
