Colby Covington Claims Tyron Woodley Ducking Him, Woodley Says Otherwise

It appears that another opportunity to see former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington and former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley has gone by the wayside.

Covington would take to Instagram to show a bout agreement for himself and Woodley for August 22, but Woodley allegedly didn’t sign it according to Covington:

MMA Fighting also caught up with Covington, who didn’t have many complimentary things to say about Woodley.

“He gassed out against a fat school teacher the other night playing relay races on NBC, and I think the people close to him finally had a come to Jesus meeting about the suicidal tendencies he is exhibiting by wanting to sign a contract with my name on the other end of it,” Covington said. “It’s a death sentence and he knows it, everyone knows it.”

Woodley says that he isn’t ducking Covington, as Covington has already turned down six previous chances to fight him.

"My answer to whether I would fight Colby is eternally yes," Woodley wrote via text message to Ariel Helwani of ESPN. "At 96 years old in a nursing home it's yes! He said no six times and now creates a date that works for him? F--- out of here. I literally treated it like every other bluff and told them quit contacting me until this b---- signed a bout agreement. Never thought he would sign. September/October, I'll get around to exterminating that roach. Let me call the UFC and see what's crackin."

There appears to be no end in the ongoing feud between Covington and Woodley, which has now failed to materialize into a UFC fight at least seven times now.
