Colby Covington’s opinion on Tyron Woodley vs Jake Paul
On a recent episode of the Submission Radio podcast, Colby candidly expressed his thoughts on Woodley facing one-half of the Paul brothers, saying that he[Woodley] has lost his dignity.
“You know, Tyron Woodley, former world champion has a great resume, done some great things, but the day Tyron Woodley fought me was the day that he DIED. The day I ended him in the octagon, he was mentally broken forever. Now he has no shame.”
“Of course, he’s gonna go out there and fight ‘Snake’ Paul, so he has no dignity, he has no shame anymore, he doesn’t care, Woodley doesn’t care to take a dive now because frankly, he has to pay off all his ex-wives. Of course, he’s gonna take a dive from Jake Paul and get a bunch of money.” Covington expressed on the podcast.
The last time Covington and Woodley stepped foot inside the cage, Chaos emerged victorious against The Chosen One. There was a lot of pot-shotting early and often, with Covington making some luck with simple punch combinations and kicks to the legs and midsection.
