White, who has been at the helm of the UFC for almost two decades, says Woodley is the hardest person he has ever dealt with.
"I would say the hardest kid that I ever dealt with, and everybody thinks that I don't like him, it has to be Woodley. Woodley's the hardest kid I've ever dealt with. I look at what he could have done and what he should have done,” White said to Kris Fade (via Aaron Bronsteter of TSN).
Woodley is a former UFC welterweight champion and has admitted to having issued his own issues with White in the past. The things for White is a lot of the issues he has with Woodley do not even do with fighting.
"Good looking kid, physique, the whole thing, becomes a world champion, has that knockout power, has all the tools and everything else, but it's just always pulling teeth with him and it's always about something else other than the fight,” says White.
