Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson 2 set for UFC 209, March 4th

Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley announced on his podcast entitled ‘The Morning Wood show w/Deez Nuts’ that he will take on Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson at UFC 209 in Las Vegas, Nevada March 4th at the T-Mobile Arena.

This comes after weeks of speculation on who his next opponent would be. Thompson posted a picture of the contract to fight Woodley and with the simple words of ‘Wating on you Woodley.

Tyron Woodley stated:

“March 4th, UFC 209 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at what I believe to be the T-Mobile Center, you will see ‘Wonderboy’ get the worst ass-whooping of his life.

This is a new fight, the most important fight of my life, not only to just continue to be the champion and to keep my belt — I can’t allow myself to lose to him and what he stands for and what his fans stand for, and this overly-entitled group of individuals who are in mixed martial arts. I can’t let myself lose to that. So with that said, let’s get to work and let’s get this party on the go.”
