Woodley: I'll beat Rory so bad I get a title shot


The winner of Robbie Lawler vs. Matt Brown is likely going to get the next title shot vs. Johny Hendricks. However, during a recent appearance on MMAJunkie radio, Tyron Woodley said he aims to beat Rory MacDonald so bad Saturday night that UFC president Dana White has no choice but to let him fight for the title.

“I think the best performance is going to get a title shot,” said Woodley. “My goal is really to focus on beating Rory MacDonald in a dominant fashion. Everything else, whether they give me a shot or not, I’m eventually going to win the world title; I’m going to be in the title picture.”

“I think they’re trying to put a fire underneath me, underneath Rory, underneath Robbie and Matt. I don’t think anybody is getting awarded anything. This is the UFC. You don’t think they can switch that and change the promos on the spot? I think it’s performance-based.”

It's unfortunate that you choose to be so insecure and hostile. Why not just be a man and take responsibility for your foolish comment(s)? Or at least show the maturity and ability to accept another point of view without having a kindergarten-esque meltdown.

What do determination and purpose have to do with choosing one's words wisely so as not to look like an arrogant fool in the event a large gap between one's words and one's actions opens up? "Know thyself" - Delphic oracle

Rory has nothing for TW. His only shot is a jab filled UD with front kicks to keep him st range. Personally I think TW is too fast and too powerful

Rory will be the dominant one, will be the one to finish the fight, and will be the one to get the title shot.
