UFC's Tyron Woodley To Conor McGregor 'Quit Being a Bitch, Let's Fight'

3/22/2019 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tyron Woodley is calling out Conor McGregor because he feels it's the only fight that makes sense for BOTH guys ... and he's "dead ass serious."

"I want to fight Conor," Tyron said on "The Hollywood Beatdown."

"I'll fight him in Ireland. I'll fight him in the f*cking back alley of a White Castle ... want to go to Russia? Want to go to the TMZ newsroom?"

"Quit being a bitch ... let's fight."

So, why would Conor take that fight? 

Woodley points out that both guys are coming off losses in world title fights -- and since they're close in weight, it makes sense for them to battle while they wait for their shot to get their belts back

Of course, Conor has said he wants fights with Nate Diaz and Cowboy Cerrone in addition to a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov ... but Tyron says none of those fights are happening any time soon. 

"Looks like we dangling around Conor ... come get this smoke."

Woodley's last fight was 3 weeks ago when he lost the welterweight belt to Kamaru Usman, who seems to be on a collision course to fight Colby Covington next. 

Tyron says it doesn't make sense to refight other contenders he already washed in the welterweight division ... so Conor is the next best thing to a rematch with Usman. 

In fact, Tyron says he's healthy and hungry and ready to fight right now ... as long as Dana White can get Conor to sign a contract

Tyron and Conor have had beef before -- when they got into an altercation behind-the-scenes at the UFC 205 press conference back in 2016. 

Stay tuned ...

EXCLUSIVE

Khabib Nurmagomedov ain't gonna walk from the UFC because Dana White ain't gonna fire his teammates for the UFC 229 brawl -- at least not yet ... so says Tyron Woodley

Tyron believes the bigger priority for the UFC is to book the Khabib vs. Conor rematch -- and the organization isn't gonna do anything to mess that up. 

As we previously reported, Khabib said he would quit UFC forever if Dana fired his teammate, Zubaira Tukhugov -- a UFC fighter who stormed the Octagon after Khabib's victory. 

Dana has not said what he'll do -- but Tyron strongly believes Zubaira's job is safe for now. 

"I think what happens is [Khabib's] teammates and his brothers in crime are going to at least have employment until 'Khabib vs. Conor 2' happens," Tyron said on "The Hollywood Beatdown."

"I don't think anybody is gonna be cut from the UFC."

Tyron tells us how he thinks everything will play out after the incident -- including what will happen with Conor McGregor

And, get this ... Tyron did the whole show from his DOCTOR'S OFFICE!!! 

The UFC welterweight champ -- and his mom -- give the lowdown on his injury and recovery. Ya don't wanna miss this one.
