MMA Crossfire – Tyron Woodley maintains silence on Dana White’s Hector Lombard fight comments

Lots of interesting info was dispensed by UFC president Dana White on UFC 177 weekend.

One of the most interesting bits was that he’s trying to put a fight together between welterweight contenders #3 Tyron Woodley and #6 Hector Lombard.

They are teammates, so one can understand some reluctance between a possible matchup.

But White said that Woodley not only “wants no part of” Lombard, but that he gave him a bunch of excuses for it – including the teammate one – while Lombard enthusiastically accepted.

But listen to White tell the story – from his point of view.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.
