At the moment, Darren Till takes second place in the ranking of the welterweight division of the UFC thanks to his victory over Stephen Thompson.
It was expected that Woodley will meet with temporary welterweight champion Colby Covington, but “Chaos” will not be able to take part in the battle because of surgery on the nasal septum.
Scandalous welterweight Colby Covington said that if he had been waited after the injury, they could earn on the fight with Tyron Woodley more than on the fight of opposition champion with Darren Till.
“This is not a decision on the prospect, this fight will not collect 100,000 sales of paid broadcasts, remember my words. If they waited for me a couple of months, our fight would have collected a minimum of 500 thousand PPV.”
I do not understand why they were in such a hurry, but unfortunately they needed the main battle for this tournament in Dallas. No one knows who this women are (talking about fight between Nikko Montano and Valentina Shevchenko for the flyweight title). No one even knows that they have a fight. I do not even know what their names are and I do not care about this fight. They needed the main battle, and everyone else sucks a finger, they are not ready to make UFC and MMA great again.
“They needed to put Tyron on the fight, because he imitated injuries and stewed in Hollywood, as a typical small liberal.”, Covington said.
Tyron Woodley won the title in 2016, defeating the knockout Robbie Lawler. Since then, “The Chosen One” has held three defenses, the last of which took place on July 29, 2017.
Woodley has repeatedly been criticized by fans and the president of the biggest MMA promotion Dana White because of his passivity in recent appearances. All three of Tayron’s final matches reached the judges’ decision.
Woodley won the last two games, beating on the points of Stephen Thompson and Damian Maya. At the same time the once formidable puncher finally turned into a cautious counterpuncher, and his fights became a patented sleeping pills.
Till won the last 4 games, including knocking out Donald Cerrone and winning a fierce bullshit against Vanderboy. The latter could be rejoiced, but there is a serious feeling that the meeting with Stephen did not pass for Darren without a trace, and he became the same helpless spot player, like his titled opponent.
Meanwhile, UFC soldier Darren Till speculated about the difference in size between him and Tyron Woodley.
“I was a bit surprised at our difference in anthropometry. Although I think that I just seem big. I straighten my shoulders wide, raise my hands high. Because of this stance, I seem taller.
I think Tyron is also a big guy. He has large pectoral muscles, large arms and legs. In the cage, there will be almost no difference between us”, Till said.
