Tyron Woodley Tells Dana White “You Owe me a Public Apology”, Threatens to “Start Leaking Some S–t”
By FCF Staff
Dana White was highly critical of Tyron Woodley’s performance on Saturday at UFC 214, and the welterweight champ clearly isn’t happy about the UFC President’s comments.
Woodley fought his way to a unanimous decision win over Demian Maia at the event, but the bout featured few, memorable exchanges and received plenty of boos. After the bout, White criticized Woodley for not hunting for the finish, and announced that the champ would not face Georges St-Pierre next as he had hoped.
Since then, Woodley appeared on”The MMA Hour” and revealed he torn his labrum in the opening round of the fight, Saturday. In addition, the fired up champ also had this to say (quotes via MMA Fighting):
“I don’t care so much about the fans, but when your job title is promoter, promote your f*cking fighters,” Woodley said. “Promote your champion. Don’t demote your champion. I threw my shoulder out in the first round, I wasn’t able to throw any damaging shots — for you guys who don’t understand what a labrum tear is, go get on Google or Wikipedia and figure it out — and I still stayed the course, I stayed on path, I stayed on point, I executed the gameplan. I had to reduce all of my shots from overhands, uppercuts, things that were hurting my shoulder, to straight punches…
“…I’ve done nothing but good stuff for the sport. I’ve done nothing but be a good model for the f*cking organization. I go out there and I fight with integrity. I covered your sport from the FOX desk a week before my fight. I always uphold my responsibilities to the organization. It’s timeout for that. The word behind ‘business’ is ‘man.’ You need to be a man, you owe me a public apology. And if I don’t get that, I’m going to start leaking some sh*t that people don’t want to be out in the wind. I’m not even kidding about that.”
Saturday’s bout marked the third time Woodley had fought since he knocked out Robbie Lawler last July to become welterweight champ.
