“Negotiation of the contract was very disrespectful” Former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley expresses outrage on failed KSI fight

Former Welterweight champion Tyron ‘T-Wood’ Woodley has recently come forward with information relating to a failed Tyron Woodley vs KSI fight contract. The 170lber is no longer in his prime and many suspect him to be fighting for money. Unfortunately, he was treated poorly probably owing to his bad record in the past.

Recently speaking with the MMA Hour, ‘The Chosen One’ said, “The negotiation of the contract was very disrespectful, and it made me want to hurt him. So I told his manager. I was on a call with his manager and I said, ‘Never in my life have I been disrespected like this in a contract.’”

“So every advantage, they wanted. And these were terms that were added after we had already agreed. So we agreed, I got a contract, and they went, ‘Oh, I’m sorry to do this, but KSI’s trainer wants to add this hydration thing.”

Should the Tyron Woodley vs KSI fight happen?

Tyron was once a formidable fighter inside the Octagon. But no matter how good a fighter, eventually his body stops responding to him like it once used to, the agility slows down, reflexes become tame, and that’s usually when it’s a good time to ride off into the sunset. Unfortunately, Woodley refused to do so.

By the time the former champ decided to call it quits, he was already on a four-fight losing streak after getting defeated by the likes of Colby Covington, Kamaru Usman, Vicente Luque, and, Gilbert Burns. Upon his retirement, a new menace was beginning to spread its wings in the sky of Combat Sports.

When the likes of Jake Paul, Logan Paul, KSI, etc. were starting to box, everybody thought it was a joke. Fast forward a few years, and these celebrity matchups have all but become a genre of their own. Jake Paul now owns a steak in PFL and is scheduled to fight Tommy Fury while his brother is a UFC partner.

These fighters try to get every advantage they can go into fights so ‘T-wood’ probably should have expected such negotiation terms. We hope the former welterweight makes better decisions going into the future.
