Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is coming off of an impressive second-round submission victory over Darren Till at UFC 228 and he earlier made it clear that he wanted to headline UFC 230 fight card and defend his title against Colby Covington. But that fight didn’t come into fruition as he had dislocated his thumb and tore three ligaments.
However, there were further talks about Tyron Woodley defending his title against Covington next at UFC 233 in January of 2018 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York but nothing has been clear yet.
However. both fighters have started a weird bet where Woodley wants $10,000 for every takedown Colby attempts and Colby said he will pay $10,000 for every punch Woodley throws.
“I’ll bet you $10,000,” Woodley said. “Every single time you touch my leg for a (takedown) shot, you’ve got to pay me 10 grand. I want people to see it for what it is. You don’t want to see these hands. You don’t want to do anything but try to out-wrestle me. And at the end of the day, he can’t even do that. So I’m challenging you: No wrestling. You touch my leg, it’s 10 bands. If I touch your leg I’ll give you 20 grand.”
A few hours later Covington appeared on MMAjunkie Radio and offered a counter bet.
“What I make of it is, I’m going to counter him and I’m going to bet him on MMAjunkie Radio that I’m going to give him $10,000 for every punch he throws – all five of them,” he said.
Who do you think wins this fight?
