Tyron Woodley Wants to “Knock Out Some Fights” Before 2020 is Up

Tyron Woodley

By FCF Staff

Following his pivotal loss to Gilbert Burns in May, Tyron Woodley is not looking to take any time off.

Woodley returned to the cage on May 30th, and dropped a one-sided decision to Burns. The bout was the first time Woodley had competed, since he lost the UFC’s welterweight title to Kamaru Usman in March, 2019.

Recently Woodley did an Instagram Live session, and he reported he’s hoping to fight two more times this year (quotes via MMA Junkie).

“I want to fight two more times this year,” Woodley said. “So we are right now in June. I fee like if I can get one on the books sometime in the near future then it still leaves me with November or December to fight again. I want to fight two more times this year. I want to just really knock out some fights. I’m excited about it. I’m ready to get back in there and get after it.”

And when asked about who he wants to fight, the 38-year-old declined to call anyone out.

“I can’t think of anybody off the top of my head like, ‘Oh, let me fight this mother(expletive),’” Woodley said. “If you lose a fight you don’t be coming out of the gate like, you ain’t really in a position to call anybody out. You kind of just got to take a seat, sit down, be humble, get back on the grind, get ready to beat somebody up. But you don’t really get to call the shots like that, at least I don’t think you should. Some people do. You know you who are.”

Prior to losing the belt to Usman, Woodley (19-5-1) had gone undefeated in seven straight fights.
