The UFC tried to put Tyron Woodley in a bout with Hector Lombard to headline the promotion’s next event in Australia. Woodley, however, won’t take the fight.

UFC president Dana White thinks he knows why Woodley won’t take the fight, but also believes the highly ranked welterweight is making a big mistake in turning it down.

  • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

    Woodley knows Lombard would stomp a mud hole thru his head.

    Same thing with Bisping being too much of a coward to fight Rockhold

    • uncle

      Lawler, Woodley, and Lombard all train together at ATT. It has nothing to do with Woodley being scared .Everybody is not a cutthroat like Jones

      • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

        What hole have you been hiding under

        You may want to tune into UFC tonight for the TRUTH

        FACT: Woodley and Lombard have NEVER EVER trained together. Woodley doesn’t want anything to do with Lombard because he knows he will get stomped. Look at what Nate “THE CHEAT” did to Woodley and better yet look at what Lombard did to ROID CHEAT Nate

        Lombard is begging Dana for the Woodley fight and everyone knows Woodley trains in the midwest most of the time. Even the owner of A. Top team is calling for this fight to happen

          Hey jackass go to MMAjunkie.com
          and find out the facts when they
          interviewed Woodley he said he
          trains with Lombard and Lawler
          at ATT.

          • Tom Jolley

            that was just an excuse Lombard said he wants the fight bad and even threw some s— talk Woodleys way

          • TheCerealKiller

            ATT has 39 gyms.

            3 hours ago, Hector tweeted; “If the #3 guy is scared & doesn’t want to fight me does that make me #3”

            They are not friends or true team mates. Woodley is scared.

          • uncle

            They can have a 1,000 gyms
            Woodley, Lombard and Lawler
            trained at 1 of them. I will say this
            if Woodley doesn’t respond to
            that tweet, then he is a p*ssy.

      • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

        About your point about Jones being a cutthroat you may as well throw the “SPORT KILLER” Greg Jackson in with Jones as he was just as much a part of that whole sleazy deal with what they did to Rashad

  • TheCerealKiller

    Without even talking about money, he turns it down. It was going to be a headline fight, which is what you want, but he turns it down. Who do you think you’re going to fight? You lost to MacDonald, Robbie is fighting Hendricks, you already beat Condit and you’re not next in line for a title shot. The reporter said you want Matt Brown next? I hope you get him and he knocks some ranks out of you!

    • Maddawgmar

      Matt Brown has an injured hand. He wont be able to fight until January or something. His only logical choice at the moment is Lombard. That could solidify a shot at the title with a win. But he doesn’t want that fight, for whatever reason. And the next title shot will go to the MacDonald/Saffeidine winner. So his only way to the title is take another fight. And win.

  • Darin

    T Wood has been known to harass Dana, constantly begging for fights, then he turns down a big fight/main event. Weird.

  • MuayThaiFood

    I’d wager that he’s looking for the easiest opponent that will get him a title shot at that he has the best chance of beating and Lombard ain’t the guy.

  • Mr. Hahn

    Scared. Plain and simple. He’s not going to get Matt Brown either this was the fight he had to take to get his title shot
