Tyrone Woodley Would be “Furious” at Nick Diaz Title Shot

With the number one contender spot in the UFC Welterweight division still up for grabs, Tyrone Woodley, who most recently defeated Carlos Condit, took to the MMA Hour to make his case for the next title shot. While he acknowledges that other fighters in the division all have at least a somewhat valid claim to a title shot, he had strong words regarding the idea that Nick Diaz might receive the next crack at Johny Hendricks.

“Everybody that’s coming out of the woodwork and guys that retired that are coming out – Diaz on the sidelines – if you wanted the title shot, brother, why didn’t you get in the cage with Carlos Condit when you had the chance? You shouldn’t have been sitting ringside. You should’ve been in there. You had the opportunity before me.”

“Is this going to be a pay-per-view fight or on Comedy Central because the last time I checked, he hasn’t beaten a wrestler ever in his career. He hasn’t won since 2011. He took his retirement since the last year, so how does he come in after he lost to Carlos Condit, which he had the chance to redeem his loss? He didn’t take it. He’s sitting ringside taunting Johny. I just don’t think on merit alone, I don’t think he deserves it…I can be an ambassador for the sport, but with integrity. I think he lacks integrity. I think he lacks merit. If they give him the title shot, I’ll be very furious with it.”
