The UFC has made it clear that UFC welterweight contender Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman is a back-up should Darren Till miss weight, or if he gets pulled out of the fight. However, the UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has made it clear that he is in no mood of fighting Usman if Till misses weight. In a recent interview, Woodley further reiterated the same.
Woodley was doing a media day on Thursday when he agains said that the he will not fight Usman. He explained that he has been preparing for Till and will not fight Usman because they have completely different styles and he won’t be fully prepared. Here’s what he had to say:
It’s Till or no fight at all, I’ll fight Usman on a full training camp, I’ll fight anybody on a full training camp. I’ll fight you on a full training camp, but I’m not a guy, this is not a circus to me. You’re not going to have me prepare to fight a 6-foot-3 striker southpaw, and then on 24 hours’ notice because this motherf*cker missed weight and he’s unprofessional, now I gotta fight a 5-foot-10 switch-stance wrestler.
