Coming up at UFC 209, in the main event, Tyron Woodley will defend the UFC welterweight title in a rematch against Stephen Thompson. They fought at UFC 205 back in November and it was scored a draw.
Wednesday afternoon, the UFC released an extended preview of the upcoming showdown between the top two welterweights in the UFC.

Apparently, the American Top Team and Duke Roufus trained fighter wasn’t too thrilled with the UFC production people and what he feels is favoritism towards Thompson as he responded about two hours later.
Let me know when you guys do my version of the extended promo and I'll retweet it. His came out great https://t.co/mIVGv5QI8S

There’s no way to say whether the UFC favored one side or the other.
UFC 209 takes place on March 4 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The co-main event also is a title fight as Khabib Nurmagomedov will go up against Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight title as undisputed champ Conor McGregor is taking time off due to him and girlfriend Dee Devlin expecting their first child in May.
