UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley seems to heading towards another of his well publicized spats with UFC President Dana White. Responding to Dana White’s comments about how there is always something wrong with Tyron, the champion reiterated that he was willing to fight Colby Covington- after he gets approval from the doctor.“I’ve stepped up for the UFC many, many, many times,” Woodley said. “But at one point, you need to start monitoring your legacy, monitoring your title run, monitoring the way you want to be remembered.”

Tyron Woodley responds to Dana White’s comments.

“I don’t want to be remembered as a guy that lost a fight to Colby Covington, or anybody else, because he knew he wasn’t 100 percent, or wasn’t given the chance to at least go through the physician that performed the surgery on his hand to get his clearance,” Woodley said. “I’ve agreed to fight Colby,” Woodley said. “I’ve agreed to fight really anybody – that’s the funny part. I just asked for a little more time before I can confirm my hand is cleared. I’ve never said no to Jan. 26. Let’s get that on record. I actually want to fight in Anaheim. I’m undefeated in Anaheim. I’ve got a lot of strong roots in California, so it would be silly for me not to want to fight there.”

Woodley also complained about the fact that Robbie Lawler and Rose Namajunas seemed to get a pass for their inactivity while he was unfairly targeted for the same. He also disagreed with people who said that he was holding out on fighting as a champion to earn more money.“I don’t make money if I don’t fight,” Woodley said. “If y’all think I want to sit around, and you think I make enough money in music, or TV, or movies, you guys have got life messed up. I make my money in fighting. That’s where I do the best at, and I recognize it’s my season right now, and that’s what I’m prepared to do.”
