Last weekend Tyron Woodley won the welterweight title when he KO’ed Robbie Lawler and Stephen Thompson challenged him to fight him December 12 at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden. But instead, Woodley wants a fight that will bring him some money against Nick Diaz or GSP. However, ‘Wonderboy’ explained why he will not take ‘no’ for an answer when he appeared as a guest at MMA Hour.
“Yeah, he went out there and he defeated Robbie Lawler but he took this fight and a lot of people didn’t think he deserved it in the first place. But, seconds after winning that title, already choosing his fights? Come on. I mean, who gets that? Who really gets to do that?
“I mean you’re starting to see that a lot more. It’s almost like, do the rankings really count?”
Although “Wonderboy” questioned how some big matches have recently been created, he claims that he will be fighting Woodley next.
“No matter what, I’m fighting Tyron,” Thompson claimed. “I’m fighting Tyron Woodley and it’s gonna be at Madison Square Garden. No ifs ands or buts. Come on guys. Come on UFC. Come on Tyron. You gotta give it to me.”
