Tyron Woodley Claims Conor McGregor Doesn’t Want Other Draws On PPV Cards

MMA

UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor have competed on the same pay-per-view cards before.

Woodley is claiming that McGregor’s making demands about the other fighters who may be big draws competing on the same pay-per-view cards he fights on.

“From what I hear, if he’s on the card, he doesn’t want any pay-per-view grossing fighters on the card with him,” Woodley told MMA Junkie Radio. “Because he doesn’t want to feed us any more, which I can respect. The dude is the draw. You can hate all you want, but he’s the draw. He’s that dude right now.”

McGregor and Woodley competed together at UFC 205, where Woodley fought Stephen Thompson to a draw and McGregor defeated Eddie Alvarez to win the UFC Lightweight Title.

The UFC Welterweight Champion also believes the UFC is pretty much allowing McGregor to do whatever he wants now.

“They’ve kind of opened up the door for Conor to do whatever the hell he wants to,” Woodley said. “He’s slapping commissioners and doing whatever he wants. The blueprint is kind of set for Conor to have his own set of rules, and then everybody else follows the old-school rules.”

While Woodley may be right on his claims, it may not be much of a concern because UFC President Dana White recently stated that the lightweight may never fight again.
