UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and UFC President Dana White have had quite the rocky relationship over the years.
White recently spoke out against the champion when he said negotiations where under way for a bout against Nate Diaz. Woodley has now responded to what White has said, but would rather just punch his boss right in the face.
“Let’s punch Dana White in the face,” Woodley said to TMZ. “I know so many fighters on the UFC roster may have been wanting to do this for a long time. You gotta get these hands. Can’t hide behind the black suit and the promotion anymore. You gotta get this right hand.”
Woodley is certainly not the only fighter or MMA personality that has had an issue with the UFC President over the years.
The welterweight champion also believes that people blew what he said about the potential Diaz bout way out of proportion.
“I’m entitled to think whatever the hell I want to think,” Woodley said. “I didn’t say, ‘Hey, the UFC has a bout agreement, we’re in the process of negotiations, Dana White called me and offered me the fight.’ So everyone took that and they ran through the roof with their perception of what that meant.”
Diaz himself had added flames to the first as well when he stated that Woodley was the best option for a return fight in the UFC.
