UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has a full scale grudge match ahead of him, as he looks to unify the UFC’s interim and undisputed world titles.
Already the undisputed world champion, Woodley watched on this weekend as the world’s largest Mixed Martial Arts promotion (UFC) put up an interim belt, that was won by Colby Covington.
Woodley and Covington both represent the world-renowned American Top Team fight camp, and Tyron says he’s officially requested Covington gets kicked off the team, after he beats him in the cage.
Here’s what Woodley said, via The MMA Hour:
“He’s not on my level and he never will be on my level. No we are to the point to where it’s my duty as a martial artist to fuck him up. It’s almost my job as a martial artist, for whatever I stand for. I talked to Dan Lambert today. I told him that after I whoop his ass I want him off the team. He’s a disgrace to American Top Team, the tradition it was rooted in, he’s a disgrace to the sport and a mockery to the toughest and best division in the UFC’s history, the welterweight division.”
“He was brought in to help me train for Rory MacDonald and I have never met a lazier piece of shit than Colby Covington. When it was time to wrestle, ask him how many takedowns he actually scored on me. Zero. Ask him why he turned blue like a fucking blueberry when I was choking him out and he refused to tap.”
“He is an asshole training partner, he’s a horrible human being, nothing he says is factual. So I called him and I said, ‘Hey, I know you feel you have to do this, it’s the path that Conor McGregor made and you think this is what you have to do, but you are really making yourself look bad.”
“He said, ‘Man, I’m just trying to make money for both of us, we will both eat at the end of the day.’ When someone is doing a good job like Conor or Chael, I hate to unveil them, but when you have John Hartnett from American Top Team scripting and writing your stuff, and when 99 percent of your social media is my face, you need to check your man Visa because you done lost all points.”
