Tyron ‘The Chosen One’ Woodley Speaks on Why Conor McGregor Won’t Fight Him + He Freestyles Live

Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley dropped by Sway In The Morning. While in the studio, the welterweight champ talks UFC, confidence, and spits a freestyle.

The Ferguson native has an upcoming fight to defend his title and already has his game plan laid out. He explained being the champ gives him an advantage. Since everyone is focused on beating him, he takes their tools and makes them fight his fight. Outside of his weight class, Woodley says he’ll fight anyone for the right price; 12 million or higher.

Building off of this, Woodley doesn’t believe Conor McGregor is coming back to UFC after the Mayweather fight. He justifies that after fighting for 100 million, he wouldn’t return to fighting for less either.

His freestyle over Future’s “Mask Off” beat was jam-packed with bars referencing the streets, politics, groupies, racism, and success. Check out the full interview below.
