Tyron Woodley is officially taking the high road.
The reigning UFC welterweight champion is no longer looking to feud with any one of his potential opponents, as well as UFC president Dana White. This comes after “Chosen One” publicly went tit-for-tat with White earlier this month about his rumored superfight with Nate Diaz.
“I’m squashing everything,” said Woodley during a recent TMZ Sports appearance (shown above). “I’m focusing on getting the shoulder together. One-by-one, everybody will get these hands. I don’t know the order. I don’t know who’s next. But I never wanted to bounce around and not continue to defend my belt. I’ve been here for a while and I plan on knocking everybody out.”
This is unfortunate news for welterweight contenders Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington, who have individually traded barbs with Woodley over the past few months. Covington has promised to retire Woodley as part of his “2018 Nerd Bash,” while RDA has called Woodley desperate for entertaining a fight with Diaz.
“I’m going to take a woosa,” added Woodley. “So if you people want to know about the Dana beef, about the Frankenstein beef, about the Queefington beef, I don’t want to talk about it. I’m focusing on being successful.”
Woodley confirmed that he is “burying the hatchet” with everyone, so don’t expect the 35-year-old UFC champion to make any sort of eye-popping headlines in the near future. After all, “Chosen One” is still in the midst of healing his bummed shoulder, so all of his focus should be on his health and eventual return to the cage later this year.
