Tyron Woodley, 31, was beating Carlos Condit Saturday night, when a well timed double leg apparently injured Condit's knee, leaving him unable to continue a short while later.
Woodley appeared recently on MMJunkie Radio and talked about the fight.
“They’re like, ‘Oh, it was a freak accident.’ A freak accident is someone who slips on a banana peel and tears their meniscus or whatever happens. But that was from an offensive attack – my wrestling takedown. A well-timed double leg.”
“I really wish [UFC commentator Joe Rogan] would just quit making reference to guys who are built with a certain muscular structure that might fatigue. I train way too hard and I put myself through hell for anybody to ever reference me in the sense that I have bad cardio or I might deflate because I have so much muscle. I have muscle because I train, because I was born genetically gifted from God.”
“I hit him with some of the hardest bombs he’s probably ever been hit with. He tried to submit me, and I flicked him off like a booger. I just think that I was showing dominance in the fight.
“I just think it’s hilarious how the fans and some of the media try to diminish a great moment for me, and I just won’t allow it. Carlos Condit’s the No. 2 guy in the world. I took him on when nobody else would. I went out there to win, I was winning the fight, I was going to take it up to the next level, and I just think I should be in line for the next world title shot.”
