When Tyron Woodley knocked out Robbie Lawler to win the UFC welterweight championship at UFC 201, most people assumed that Woodley’s first defense would be against No. 1 contender Stephen Thompson, who was just coming off an impressive domination of former title challenger Rory MacDonald. However, Woodley threw Thompson and the rest of the MMA world a curveball when in his post-fight statements he said that he wanted to fight either Nick Diaz or Georges St-Pierre and that Thompson needed to fight Lawler first. Since then, St-Pierre has also expressed an interest in the fight (should he be able to come to terms with the UFC about his return), and Demian Maia has also staked a claim to a title shot after dominating former interim champion Carlos Condit.
All in all, the prospects for a Wonderboy title shot are looking pretty grim and perhaps because of this, Thompson has started to speak out about the current champion. In an interview with Submission Radio recently, Thompson took the proverbial gloves off, calling the champion a hypocrite and saying that Woodley is refusing to fight him because he’s scared.
“I’m glad I did hold back [on the UFC 201 post-fight show]. That just shows my self-control, and I knew a lot of people like my students were watching then. But if I could have gone back, or if I could have gotten him in a room with closed doors, I would definitely let him know at that time, you’re crazy. When you were a few months ago preaching how you deserve that fight, you deserve the fight, give it to you when you were ranked number FOUR and they still gave it to you. And now you’re doing this to me? It sounds like you’re a hypocrite, man. That’s just crazy talk. It sounds like to me you’re scared. You’re scared to fight me. Let’s do this, let’s go [laughs]. I don’t know what else to say without throwing in a few cuss words.”
Thompson is of course talking about the moment when he realized Woodley didn’t want to fight him. After knocking out Lawler, Woodley went on the UFC post-fight show on Fox Sports which Thompson was co-hosting that evening. When Thompson pitched a potential title fight between the two of them later this year, that is when Woodley informed Thompson that he felt Thompson should fight Robbie Lawler next. That was the incident which spurred Woodley being labeled “The Choosey One” and brought out the heretofore unseen trash talking side of Thompson.
When asked Thompson to clarify his feelings on if Woodley was actually scared to fight him, Thompson had this to say:
“Well as hard as he’s fighting it, it does seem that way. If it was just the money – and it doesn’t seem like the UFC’s going to give it to him – okay, I’ll fight the number one contender. But now it’s going crazy. Now he’s throwing racism out there and now he’s just kind of going over and beyond of the whole situation, to be honest with you. And yeah man, it’s starting to seem that way. I mean, you’re the champion, you should be taking all newcomers – especially when you just get that belt. You have the belt of for thirty seconds and you’re already shutting me down, asking for a money fight? It doesn’t work that way pal…
“What champion doesn’t accept the number one contender? You know what I mean? That’s just how it goes. You defend that title a few times before you ever starting asking for a money fight. Come on, what’s going on? I mean, you hear Conor McGregor doing that, but Tyron’s nowhere near the level of Conor McGregor when it comes to marketing and popularity. He’s just not there. I think everybody else, the fans see that as well. And it upset not just me, but a lot of other fans and people that follow the UFC too.”
Though no official announcement has been made for Woodley’s first title defense, Thompson is still hoping he will get the call. UFC President Dana White has said he believes Thompson is next and Thompson is preparing under the assumption that that will be the case. However, with the increasingly impressive case of his welterweight contemporary Demian Maia building, Thompson did outline why he believes he deserves the next title shot over the BJJ ace.
“I do believe that after me and Tyron fight, that [Maia] should be getting the title fight. I think he’s proven himself in the welterweight division, but if you look, I’ve got the longer winning streak. I’m seven (wins), he’s six. I beat Rory MacDonald – the guy who’s the last guy that beat him. But man, I mean, the guys that he’s fought – Carlos Condit is a monster. I mean, Neil Magny, Gunnar Nelson- they’re all really good fighters, but I think I have beaten the better fighters, the more prestigious fighters in the division than he has. And obviously I have the longer winning streak (laughs). So I know he’s throwing out there (that) he’s an older guy and thinks he should get it before me because he’s an older guy, but hey, I can’t help that he started MMA at a later age. I feel like I started at a later age. I started, what – I think I was 28 when I started mixed martial arts. So yeah man, I’m definitely the one that deserves the next title shot.”
Woodley has previously stated that he wants to fight on the Madison Square Garden card in November for the UFC’s return to New York. However, St-Pierre won’t be available to fight until December at the earliest, and currently appears to be no closer to signing with the UFC than ever. If Woodley really does want to fight on that card, it would seem that Maia or Thompson are the one’s he would compete against.
And if Thompson does get his title shot and manages to become the welterweight champion, Thompson says he won’t have the same goal as all the fighters asking for “money fights” because he doesn’t fight for money but for the love of the game.
“No man, it’s literally for the lifelong commitment to this game. I’ve been a martial artist since I’ve been three years old and I started fighting at the age of 15 and I’ve never stopped. I’ve worked my butt of to get to where I am today. For the money? Nah. If I wasn’t in the UFC, I’d still be fighting somewhere. Like I said, I don’t care what the UFC thinks, I’d fight for free. I just want to be the best fighter. That’s my goal, the best fighter.”
UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor is an upcoming mixed martial arts event promoted by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on November 12, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. This event will be the first UFC event hosted in New York City. It will also be the first UFC event hosted in the State of New York after the longtime professional MMA ban was revoked in early 2016.
Main card: three title bouts, including a champion vs. champion contest
The event is expected to be headlined by a UFC Lightweight Championship bout between current champion Eddie Alvarez and current UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor.
Alvarez was originally expected to make his first title defense against undefeated contender Khabib Nurmagomedov, but it was announced on September 21 that Alvarez missed the contract deadline for the bout and in consequence it was expected to take place at UFC 206 in December. Meanwhile, McGregor was previously expected to challenge for the lightweight title at UFC 196 in February against then champion Rafael dos Anjos. Dos Anjos eventually pulled out due to a broken foot and the bout never materialized.
A UFC Welterweight Championship bout between current champion Tyron Woodley and five-time kickboxing world champion Stephen Thompson is expected to take place at the co-main event.
A third title fight, a UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship bout between the current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Karolina Kowalkiewicz is also expected to be part of the card. The duo met previously in their amateur days in 2012, when Jędrzejczyk defeated Kowalkiewicz via submission in the Amatorska Liga MMA Tournament final.
Former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman and 2000 Olympic silver medalist and former world champion in freestyle wrestling Yoel Romero have been slated for this portion event.
A welterweight bout between former champion Robbie Lawler and former lightweight title challenger Donald Cerrone was the first confirmed bout of the event.However, just a few days after the announcement, it was revealed the Lawler decided to take a little more time to get ready for the fight after losing his title via knockout at UFC 201. He was replaced by The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen middleweight winner Kelvin Gastelum, who was scheduled to face Jorge Masvidal one week earlier than the event.
Opening the main card will be a women’s bantamweight bout between former Strikeforce and UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Miesha Tate and Raquel Pennington.
A featherweight contest between former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Jeremy Stephens is expected to be the featured bout of the preliminary card.
Despite being originally expected to face Alvarez, Khabib Nurmagomedov will face Michael Johnson instead in a potential lightweight title eliminator.
A middleweight bout between Tim Kennedy and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and divisional newcomer Rashad Evans.
A welterweight bout between former Bellator Welterweight Champion Lyman Good and Belal Muhammad was scheduled for this portion of the event.However on October 24, Good was pulled from the card after being notified by USADA due to a potential anti-doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected ten days earlier. He was replaced by Vicente Luque.
A lightweight bout between Al Iaquinta and former welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves was previously linked to UFC 202. However, the pairing was initially delayed and was expected to be contested at this event. Subsequently, Iaquinta announced on September 19 that he pulled out due to a contract dispute with the promotion. He was replaced by Jim Miller. The bout is expected to headline the UFC Fight Pass portion of the event.
To complete the card, there will be a middleweight bout between Tim Boetsch and Rafael Natal, as well as a women’s bantamweight bout between former title challenger Liz Carmouche and Katlyn Chookagian
