Dana White has announced that Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson will be the first fighter to get a crack at new UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley’s title.
This is coming off of a rather bizarre series of events that saw Woodley challenged by Thompson shortly after Woodley defeated Lawler for the title. Woodley then promptly danced around the challenge and instead stated he wanted either a fight with Georges St. Pierre or Nick Diaz. Nick Diaz hasn’t won a fight since 2011, and Georges St. Pierre hasn’t had a fight in almost 3 years. Woodley is no stranger to lobbying hard for the fight that he wants however, having just recently sat on the sidelines for a year and a half awaiting a title shot.
