Now, everyone who is familiar with boxing knows one or two things about the beef between Conor McGregor and Tyron Woodley.
According to many people, it all began in 2016 when they had a brawl at the backstage of the UFC 205. But who knows, boxers are perpetually competing, so that alone could create some beef among them. In that event, Conor McGregor went ahead to take the day in 2 weight classes at the same time – an achievement that should make Tyron Woodley even more envious.
After the event, the talk of the town was that Conor should step up and fight Woodley in welterweight category. To this, Woodley said yes. However, Conor has to wait till 2018 before he could engage in any competition. When the wait was over, and he stepped up to Khabib Nurmagomedov in defense of his title, Woodley was there to see the fight. After the match, he became even more convinced that if he encounters Conor, he will come out successful.
He commended Khabib’s skills after the game, while pointing out his weaknesses. At the end, he said that if Khabib was able to knock Conor down with those weaknesses, he too can knock him out when they meet.
