Tyron Woodley To Conor Mcgregor: “Quit being A bitch, Let’s Fight.”
The former two-division champion Conor Mcgregor is currently on a business tour, and over the weekend he was a guest of honor at St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Chicago. During that he spoke to ABC7 Chicago about his fighting future and revealed he’s in negotiation with the UFC, aiming for a summer return. Mcgregor also said he’s willing to take a co-main spot if UFC is ready to ‘give me a rightful share’ in the company.
Mcgregor last fought back in October’s UFC 229 PPV event where he lost the bid to capture the lightweight title when Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted him in the fourth round. Currently, he’s serving a six-month of the suspension handed by NSAC, that means he’s eligible to return to Octagon by April.
Moreover earlier this month Mcgregor was arrested on two felony charges after stomping on fan’s phone outside the Miami hotel. Despite that Irishman knows what he worths.
Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is coming off a fifth-round decision loss against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 earlier this month. “The Chosen One,” was lobbying for a rematch but it seems like UFC have some other plans for Usman who’s next opponent will be Colby Covington.
Since he doesn’t have anything in hands now, Woodley is now setting his sights on Conor McGregor. “The Chosen One’ feels Mcgregor is not in such a position to call a title shots and thinks promotion should let Irishman fight him. (h/t MMAFighting)
“I’d tell him, ‘Sit your ass down and fight Tyron Woodley at 170,’” Woodley said. “We both just lost in a world title fight. You ain’t in no position to call no shots. You lost, you started a huge religious, culture war, you just got into some smoke by smashing a fan’s phone, you’re constantly in trouble, you constantly get passes. You get through Tyron and we’ll talk.”
After losing a title fight against Khabib, Mcgregor was asking for an immediate rematch, however Russian eyes with the winner of UFC 236 title fight between Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier, so that is out of range for Irishman.
Irishman had previously linked to a fan favorite matchup with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone however the talks of this bout stalled out when the UFC wants their showdown to co-headline the event.
Other than that Mcgregor also recently said he owes Nate Diaz a trilogy, so where does this fall is seemingly unknown. Woodley added none of these fights make sense for him.
“I’m dead ass [serious],” Woodley continued. “I didn’t think about that until you just said it but I’m like, okay, he wants to fight Cerrone – never been a champion. He wants to fight Nate Diaz – never been a champion. He wants a rematch of Khabib immediately, so do I. I don’t look like I’m getting an immediate rematch so it looks like we dangling around Conor. Come get this smoke.”
Mcgregor and Woodley had heated moment backstage at UFC 205 since then ‘Chosen One’ has talked about Mcgregor on many occasions.
“Who makes sense for me to fight right now?” Woodley asked. “I might as well fight Conor. Where you at Conor? Quit being a b*tch. Let’s fight.”
Irishman has twice fought at welterweight against Nate Diaz so it’d be nothing new if they Mcgregor agrees to throw down against Woodley. Even former welterweight champion giving ‘Notorious’ a home advantage.
“I want to fight Conor,” Woodley concluded. “I’ll fight him in Ireland. I’ll fight him in a f*cking back alley of White Castle. Wherever y’all want to do it at.”
