Default Woodley says he was ‘really pissed off’ by Dana White comments, has sitdown meeting p

UFC president Dana White said Tyron Woodley was “full of ****” last week. Woodley, the UFC’s welterweight champion, didn’t take that too kindly.

Woodley told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour that he phoned White the day after White made those comments on FS1’s UFC Tonight. He said they spoke on the phone and have a sit-down meeting planned for next week in Las Vegas.

White said Woodley was “full of ****” in an interview with ESPN about a potential fight with Nate Diaz. Woodley said that a bout with Diaz was more likely than most people thought and he would bet the house on that being his first fight back from injury.

“I was really pissed off,” Woodley said. … “I could see if it was a situation that I literally just made up.”

To Woodley, all he was saying was that he thinks the fight could happen. He never said that there was a bout agreement or specific negotiations going on. Woodley said he thinks White went too far in essentially calling him a liar.

“That’s a little bit harsh, a little bit hardcore for somebody who is wearing the belt of your organization, that people and young fighters aspire to enter the UFC, they aspire to be UFC champion,” Woodley said. “I don’t think many people are going to aspire to be the champion when they see how champions are treated. And they see that the non-champions and the people that are unprofessional — middle-finger flicking, **** talking — they’re actually making the money.

“So what kind of picture are we trying to put out? I thought we were going in the direction to be parallel with the NFL, NHL, MLB and the other professional sports. It’s a circus until it comes to Tyron and now we want to go back to the old-school rubric. I got issues with that.”

Woodley said that White told him on the call that the fight the UFC wants is Woodley defending the title against Rafael dos Anjos. Woodley said that fight has never been formally offered to him and if it was, he would accept it. All Woodley is trying to get across, he said, is that he wants a fight with a big-name opponent.


One day after Woodley said a fight with Diaz was a possibility, Diaz essentially backed him up. Diaz told ESPN that Woodley was “my best option” for a comeback bout. Woodley noted that White never said anything about those quotes from Diaz.

“I just didn’t think that was right,” Woodley said. “I think even if he thought that way, it could have been said a different way. I think a lot of people spun what I was saying. Never said this fight was in negotiations. Never said any of those things. Then when Nate came out, I never heard anybody say how full of **** Nate was. It’s so funny it was a one-sided bashing.”

Woodley cites examples like Nick Diaz fighting Georges St-Pierre for the welterweight title coming off a loss and Georges St-Pierre challenging for the middleweight title after four years away as situations where the UFC bent the structure for big fights. He doesn’t get why people find it so offensive when he says he wanted to fight one of the Diaz brothers or GSP.

“There’s no sport anymore, so quit playing with me when you guys want to act like this is a sport,” Woodley said. “And people want to [say], ‘Oh, Tyron is such a complainer.’ It’s so much negativity. Use that energy to talk about something positive.”

White said Diaz has never been offered to Woodley. Woodley fired back that his statement is “a lie.” Woodley said it was offered before his surgery to repair a torn labrum last year for UFC 219.

There was a time when the UFC reached out to him and committed to doing things differently in terms of marketing him, Woodley said. But the Missouri native feels like that has stopped and “**** ain’t working.” White’s “full of ****” comments are just the latest demonstration of that, he said.

“It can’t go down like that,” Woodley said. “It’s very damaging for me, for a fighter that’s trying to generate his brand and his name.”

He has a right to be pissed off.

I don't agree with some of his general complaints over the past few years, but it does seem that he has been thrown under the bus recently by Dana specifically.

Calling him a boring fighter,
Giving him the GSP fight, taking it away then verbally slating him,
Saying he is talking ****, multiple occasions recently.

it just doesn't seem the best way to promote your fighters.

Dana has changed a lot in recent years. He's mega loaded and he doesn't have half the power over the top half of the roster like he used to. He has checked out and seems to give fewer ****s every day.

Dana can be a bit too 'forward' sometimes. It's good in some situations, not so much in others.

This back peddling hypocrite should take a look in the mirror. How does he think it "makes the sport look" when he's begging for a fight against Nate Diaz who is a complete and utter joke @ WW. Woodley is the best example of a champ overstaying his welcome. Boring, annoying, aging, not that good at all.

Throw the guy in fun matchups & you'll have fun fights. Maia just wants to take you down. Thompson just wants you to make a mistake & will wait for 3 days to throw a punch at you if you don't throw first. Put Miocic in with Curtis Blaydes for his next 3 fights & lets see how hyped people are with Miocic.

I think Woodley gets unfairly & harshly judged by fans & Dana specifically. Guy has fought the best guy in his division for his last 4 fights ffs. Who else has done that these days?

Granted Woodley does got that personality that ALWAYS makes him sound like he's butthurt so thats doing him no favors, but the whole UFC is having champ vs champ fights now & Woodley is the guy with the 2 biggest names above & below him & was talking about champ vs champ the longest yet he don't get to fight either of them lol. I mean clearly Dana is f#cking with this guy.

100% agree with this.

He beat those guys, the way you are meant to, he shut them down and didn't get touched. He almost finished wonderboy in both fights despite it being a tentative affair.

Take those 3 recent fights away and he has been a steamroller in the division.

Moving forward, give him Nate, RDA, Till, etc and we should hopefully see some more exciting fights.

Love him or hate him, he's fighting the correct guys were a lot of other fighters are cashing in. If everyone else is, why can't he.

Honestly they were really putting their money and chips in on Wonderboy winning - his style is more fan friendly (at least compared to Woodley's 'ground humping' as some people put it). Although he is a point-fighting kickboxer his flashy karate kicks are good for highlight reels.

The UFC are never good at hiding their bitterness when the fighter they want to win loses. No wonder why most of their fighters hate the organisation

EDIT: Look at the exposure Garbrandt gets at BW, the way they treat DJ at FLW (they want to get rid of that division), Ngannou vs Stipe etc. not to mention Mcgregor holding belts hostage for a decade
