UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Colby Covington were expected to meet later this year, but then reports surfaced stating that Darren Till would get a title shot at UFC 228 instead of Covington.
Woodley has no idea as to how any of the rumors got started, but also blasts the interim champion for having a “sore vagina.”
“[The UFC] never even called me about the [Colby Covington] fight. That’s the funny part. [He and Rafael Dos Anjos] fought June 9th, I never got a call even to fight him. I never got a call,” Woodley said in an interview with TMZ Sports. “I just said [to him], ‘hey you won the boo-boo belt, now come get your ass whooped’. Now all of the sudden… [Covington] was supposed to fight me and then he said I talked all the shit now hold on…I gotta actually get in there with this dude and fight him. So he called Dana [White] and said, ‘hey, Dana um…my vagina’s sore…and um…I don’t think I can fight Tyron Woodley.’”
The UFC Welterweight Champion also doesn’t think much of Till, who he criticizes for not making weight at UFC Fight Night Liverpool.
“So now I got somebody (Darren Till) who hit me up at 2:00 AM on Twitter saying, ‘sign the contract’. I hate when fighters do that. I don’t have no damn contract and who are you? Didn’t you just miss weight?,” says Woodley.
If Woodley doesn’t defend the gold at UFC 228, it would most likely leave UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion Nicco Montano and Valentina Shevchenko in the main event slot.
