Tyron Woodley leaves hilarious voice message for Nate Diaz: ‘I heard you’re shitting yourself’

New, comments

Reigning UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is leaving no stone unturned in his pursuit of mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Nate Diaz.

While Woodley has a plethora of available title contenders at his fingertips, including former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, the welterweight king is completely focused on scoring a massive fight with Diaz. After all, Woodley has been hoping to land a high-profile opponent since he became champion back in 2016.

Although reports have surfaced of a potential clash between Woodley and Diaz, UFC president Dana White remains adamant that the matchup has never been, and never will be, on the table. White even said Woodley is “full of shit” for saying the fight was offered to him in the past.

Still, that hasn’t deterred Woodley from fanning the fire and continuously lobbying for a bout with the only UFC fighter to ever defeat Conor McGregor. During a recent appearance on TMZ Sports, “Chosen One” threw more bait into the combat pond by calling Diaz up and leaving a rather entertaining voice message.

“Hello, this is a message for Mr. Nathan Diaz,” said Woodley as he disguised his voice. “I called because I got a big box of pampers for you because I heard you were shitting yourself because you had to fight Tyron Woodley.”

“Please give us a call back so we can set this fight up.”

Whether you find this funny or not, you can’t blame Woodley for his attempts to goad Diaz into the cage. Diaz has become one of the most popular fighters in the sport today after choking out McGregor back at UFC 196 and would help “Chosen One” score the biggest payday of his career should the title fight come to fruition.

It’s going to be hard to sell White on the idea of defending his title against a guy who hasn’t fought a real welterweight since losing to Rory MacDonald in 2011, but Woodley simply has to keep trying.
