Tyron Woodley Makes It Known: He’ll Fight Anybody

Tyron Woodley

UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has started his latest training camp.

But he is doing so without an opponent set.

Woodley told UFC Unfiltered recently that he is willing to face anyone from former division champion Georges St-Pierre to current middleweight titleholder Michael Bisping.

Or Conor McGregor. Or Nate Diaz. Or Nick Diaz.

“There’s a lot of fighters who say, ‘I’ll fight anybody, anytime, anywhere,’ but they really don’t mean that,” Woodley said (thanks to MMAjunkie for the quotes). “If Conor McGregor wanted to fight me, he has an opportunity to do so. So does (Michael) Bisping. So does Georges St-Pierre. So does Nick Diaz. So does Nate Diaz. All these guys have a chance to step up to the plate.

“But nobody picked up the bat.”

Woodley successfully defended his title earlier this year with a decision victory over Stephen Thompson. The win improved his overall record to 17-3-1 and his UFC mark to 7-2-1.
