UFC Welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley may have had some time off since his last title defense in 2017. Since then we have seen a superfight between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic, so it’s an honest question if a win for Woodley would call for a superfight against Middleweight champion Robert Whittaker. Woodley joined the UFC Media Conference call today and kept everything pretty light-hearted.
“I’ve got a superfight coming up on September 8,” Woodley said jokingly.
“Then it’ll be someone else. My focus now is fighting Darren Till,” Woodley continued.
At 5’9″ Woodley isn’t the shortest fighter on the roster, but he’s certainly not the tallest either. When he was asked about the size advantage Till poses, Woodley really wasn’t too concerned.
“Im always the shorter fighter,” he said.
“He’s [Till] a big welterweight. I’ve fought many guys who were former middleweights. I personally prefer to focus on me and Darren Till. I think its a great matchup. I think this is a fight that ends on the feet,” Woodley finished.
Regardless of how many times someone would ask about the Chosen One’s future opponents, he would revert back to his upcoming fight.
“I try to focus on this fight. Its a super fight. Its the biggest fight of my career,” Woodley stated.
A couple of questions still exist for Woodley ahead of this fight. Will Till make weight? According to Till, yes. Will Till’s size be too much? Woodley is confident that his size won’t be an issue.
Regardless, UFC 228 viewers are in for a treat in the main event. Could Woodley be right that this fight ends on the feet? We will know Saturday, September 8 when the two face off in Dallas, Texas.
