The former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley recently launched a scathing verbal attack on his fierce rival and the former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington. Woodley was talking about Covington’s recent antics of somehow dropping out of potential title fights and claimed that Covington ‘puts his foot in his own mouth’.
Woodley was recently in a conversation with noted MMA and combat sports journal MMA Fighting. He told them that Colby twice talked himself out of title fights against him, and has now done the same with the fight against Usman.
He further went on to reveal that he is aiming to get the belt back and wants to rematch with Usman, but would be willing to fight Covington as well. Here’s what he had to say:
Colby does a good job of putting his own foot in his mouth, I know people say that about me, but he’s a complete dumbass. He’s talked himself out of three world title fights. He was supposed to fight me before I fought Till, he bitched out of that fight. He was supposed to fight me before I fought Usman, he bitched out of that fight. You guys can do the math as to what he did with the Usman fight. My goal is to get my belt back, so obviously (current welterweight champion) (Kamaru) Usman is going to be my top priority. If Colby want to get that ass whupped, he can get whupped up too.
