Following the footsteps of boxing greats, such as Muhammad Ali and Floyd Mayweather, UFC champion Conor McGregor likes to hype up his game apparently for commercial benefits.
The more he talks shmuck, the more people want him defeated, or, better yet knocked out into oblivion. Some people will turn up being loyal, while others grow into haters. But they would all spend money to watch Conor McGregor regardless on which side they are.
It’s an old marketing ploy in boxing, a true and old sports Conor McGregor thinks he can dominate.
While there are still no concrete steps made toward a Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather bout, another UFC fighter is salivating at the chance to beat the Irishman up. Thanks to his trash talking, everybody wants a piece of him.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on one’s perspective, it’s a real welterweight champion in Tyron Woodley that’s up to the challenge.
Tyron Woodley offers showdown with Conor McGregor in Croke Park, Ireland
“If McGregor and his coach, John Kavanagh and everybody thinks that Conor can do well against me and they gas this dude up… you know, he’s a dope fighter, but there are levels to this,” Tyron Woodley said in a report by Joe.co.uk.
“When you start going up, it’s like me going up to 205 [lbs] and challenging guys at that weight. When you come up to this weight brother, it’s real power, it’s real people that will put real hands on you, that’ll put you down to the canvas and you will not get up unless I let you up.”
“So if you want to get in there with a lion and get your head bit off and have me spewing your blood all over the octagon while you’ve got that goofy tiger tattoo on your chest, looking like a clown with a clown on your chest, we can do it.”
Tyron Woodley fighting Conor McGregor in Ireland could be a dream-come-true for MMA fans and followers of the Notorious. Talks about fighting in Croke Park have long been a subject of discussion in the UFC.
“We can do it in Ireland, Dublin, we can do it in the back of [fast food outlet] White Castle, I don’t care,” Tyron Woodley added.
Tyron Woodley dispute
Knowing Conor McGregor and his tendency for braggadocio, Tyron Woodley and the Notorious had a bit of a disagreement during a UFC 205 event, at the weigh-ins, according to a report by BloodyElbow. Both had a Twitter feud too, and McGregor called him a “b*tch.”
Tyron Woodley is bent on a rematch against Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson after both fought to a draw at UFC 205. But his offer to fight Conor McGregor “anytime and anywhere” would certainly break records and make history.
