UFC 228 features a powerhouse main event as welterweight champion Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley will defend his belt for the fourth time against undefeated English prospect Darren ‘The Gorilla’ Till.
The materialisation of this sidelined interim champ Colby ‘Chaos’ Covington as he should have got the opportunity for the unification bout against Woodley. However Covington was recovering from some health issues and is slated to face the winner of Woodley and Till. Covington is this forced to put his money on arch rival Woodley.
“I mean I never thought I would say this, but I’m actually rooting for Woodley. I want him to win, because I don’t want him to fuck up everything I built. I built this fight with him for over a year and a half. I’ve been begging to fight him, dude, he’s ducking me every shot he can. So I’m begging for Woodley not to f**k this up, but I just don’t know. I don’t know what’s left in the tank. Man, he’s older… man, he’s 36. He’s been in Hollywood. He’s on his little soy boy diet. He’s doing his little B-list movies that are going straight to DVD that no one cares about.”
