The ongoing feud between UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya and former welterweight champ Tyron Woodley isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

The pair first got heated when Woodley suggested he was interested in moving up to middleweight to fight Adesanya. Adesanya then responded, and they’ve been going back-and-forth ever since.

One of the more recent verbal volleys in this war of words was fired by Adesanya.

“My squashed wide [expletive] @TWooodley The only thing you ever beating me at is a rap battle (maybe) lol. I see your ambition, you doing what I’m doing with my plans and moving up…I’m flattered. Just remember that you will have to see me and you’ve only seen Mr Nice Izzy.” – Israel Adesanya on Twitter.

Shortly after Adesanya fired this shot at Woodley, his training partner Dan Hooker joined the conversation.

“Is he ‘clout chasin’?” – Dan Hooker on Twitter

“He just being a thirsty beech. I’m letting him sip, then I’ll drown him.” –Israel Adesanya on Twitter.

This last comment from Adesanya garnered some return fire from Woodley, who also snuck in a shot at Hooker.

“Im a 5 time world champ stick figure. I gave you props & said after I wipe the Woodley Weight division clean I’ll move up. Someone asked me about moving up. You’re the one that got sensitive. Now I’ll pull your tampon out. And your homie name is #Hooke. lay ups I tell you!” – Tyron Woodley on Twitter.
