TYRON WOODLEY RUMORS

Why Tyron Woodley will not get a title shot anytime soon

Tyron Woodley has talked a lot about title shots recently but seems on a mission to make sure he never gets one. Coming off of an impressive first round finish of Dong Hyun Kim, he moved up into the number three spot in the rankings behind only Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald.

Woodley forced to prove himself worthy of UFC title shot -- again

ST. LOUIS -- Tyron Woodley was upset when he learned that his next fight would not be for the welterweight title. Who could blame him?
