Tyron Woodley says the UFC pressed former fighters Sage Northcutt and Paige VanZant too quickly: “I was his training partner, I’m telling you, he wasn’t ready”
Cole Shelton - June 17, 2022

Along with that, the promotion has to carefully matchmake them which they didn’t do to both Northcutt and VanZant as both struggled and ultimately left the UFC.
