UFC President Dana White was not happy with the UFC 214 welterweight title fight performance from Tyron Woodley, which took place over the weekend in Anaheim, California.
White stated that Woodley and Maia set a record for the least amount of punches thrown in a five-round title fight. White also said that he thought Woodley could have taken some risks to finish Maia who had a very swollen eye from the first round that he likely could not see out of for the majority of the fight.
Woodley fired back while speaking on “The MMA Hour” on Monday and stated that he tore his labrum during the fight, which only allowed him to throw straight punches. Woodley was furious with White and stated as the promoter of the fight, he needs to promote, not demote his champion. Woodley then stated how he has been nothing but a good partner for the company and for the sport and threatened “to start leaking some sh*t that people don’t want to be out in the wind” if he didn’t receive a public apology from White.
TMZ reported on Tuesday that they reached out to White on the situation and the UFC boss said, “Woodley and I talked and he said he was just pissed and upset and didn’t mean it.”
TMZ also reached out to Woodley who told them, “We good.”
Although the beef between Woodley and White seems to have been resolved, Colby Covington who is a former teammate of Woodley tweeted on Monday, “Don’t worry boss @danawhite I know some serious dirt on @TWooodley that would ruin his life. #fake”
