...UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley goes on a rant towards interim champion Colby Covington during a live chat on social media.
There is some serious bad blood between the two UFC welterweight champions, Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington.
Woodley recently did a live chat on social media where he apparently went on an aggressive rant towards Covington, who was recently crowned interim welterweight champion at last Saturday’s UFC 225. During that chat, Woodley stated he wanted planned to put the beatdown on his 170-pound counterpart.
“Colby Covington is coming to get his ass whooped,” said Woodley. “I ain’t never in my life, I ain’t never in my career, I ain’t never in my existence as an adult human being wanted to f**k somebody up so bad, beat somebody so bad, embarrass somebody so bad, end his career so bad, take his life so bad, and I don’t even say that figuratively. Literally, I’m gonna try to hurt him so f**king bad they’re never gonna want to let me fight in the UFC again, that’s a fact.”
Harsh words from the champion, although Covington wasn’t shying away from his own smack-talking towards Woodley during his post-fight interview he gave after he defeated Rafael Dos Anjos.
“Tyron Woodley, you’re a freaking coward. Why’d you let this little filthy animal take this *ss-whooping tonight? This was supposed to be you,” said Covington. “You can’t run, you can’t hide no more Tyron Woodley. I’m coming for you.”
With a feud this intense between Woodley and Covington, this could be great news for not only Woodley and Covington but for the UFC as well. There may be more investment into this potential fight it were to happen due to the intense disdain both fighters have for each other. And it’s also worth noting that it may help get fans more interested in Woodley as a champion since has been criticized in the past for allegedly having underwhelming performances.
Woodley's response and reaction make me think he lost this fight mentally, months before the fight could even have a chance of taking place.
His reaction is like Jose Aldo's reaction to Conor.
