In his appearance on The Ariel Helwani show, this past Monday, welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley, was seen teasing fight fans with the possibility of moving up to the 185-pound division. Woodley said:
“People in the middleweight division, they need to watch out too. I might slide up on one of y’all by the end of the year. Wipe out the division clean at welterweight and go up there and either beat Kelvin Gastelum up again or take out Robert Whittaker. They are both welterweights anyways. They just don’t know how to cut weight.”
Tyron Woodley sent a message to the middleweights on today’s show: he’s coming. This year.
