“I was just trying to ruffle some feathers. I thought there was a chance, but when he kind of eased up on making it sound like it was set in stone, I think that’s where he messed up at.’

“He came and said, ‘I haven’t heard anything yet.’ When you start doing that, you leave that little small window for error. I think that’s the way they let Carlos Condit slide in there.”

UFC welterweight Tyron Woodley recently talked on The MMA Road Show about his upcoming fight with former champion Johny Hendricks.

He said when he first started calling for a fight with Hendricks it was just to make some noise and didn’t really expect it to happen. That is, until he noticed Hendricks make one major mistake.

According to Woodley when Hendricks told the media that his title shot wasn’t a done deal yet, then that’s when he left a window for the UFC to stick Carlos Condit in that shot instead of him.

Think he’s right?
