UFC 214 was a pretty amazing event, with great fights through the prelims right up to the exciting and dramatic rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. But one fight that didn’t set the world on fire was the Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia welterweight title fight. That one lasted the full 25 minutes, at least 18 of which had the entire Honda Center booing their lungs out, performing the wave, and waving their cell phones around.
Afterwards, outspoken UFC president Dana White tore Woodley a new one during the post-fight press conference, taking a big money fight with GSP away from the welterweight champ and accusing Tyron of not wanting to take any risks.
Tyron struck back on this week’s episode of The MMA Hour, explaining that a torn and he used some pretty strong words.
“I don’t care so much about the fans but when your job title is promoter, promote your f**king fighters,” Woodley said. “Promote your champion. Don’t demote your champion. I threw my shoulder out in the first round, I wasn’t able to throw any damaging shots.”
“I’ve done nothing but good stuff for the sport,” Tyron continued. “I’ve done nothing but be a good model for the f**king organization. I go out there and I fight with integrity. I covered your sport from the FOX desk a week before my fight. I always uphold my responsibilities to the organization. It’s time out for that. The word behind ‘business’ is ‘man.’ You need to be a man, you owe me a public apology. And if I don’t get that, I’m going to start leaking some s**t that people don’t want to be out in the wind. I’m not even kidding about that. They know what I’m referring to. I’m due a public apology.”
