However, despite being labeled as the next person in line, the 34-year-old continues to be determined that he was never ever sitting out and waiting for the champ.
" I was not offered other bouts," said Woodley in a recent interview with Sherdog Radio (transcribed by BJPenn.com). Our fans are so entitled and so all-knowing that I was waiting around, whether I confessed it or not. I was being an overly-entitled pouty fighter that stated, I’m not fighting unless you offer me a world title shot.
Prior to his scheduled bout with Hendricks went sour, Woodley had racked off two-straight success over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 183 and Dong Hyun Kim at UFC Fight Night 48 by means of knockout.
" I was never ever provided the rebooking of Johny Hendricks," added Woodley. I never understood it was an alternative for a fighter to wait in the UFC. I was not sitting on the rack waiting for my time to shine.
