I’ve got some bad news for Stephen Thompson…
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who won the division strap by pasting Robbie Lawler at the UFC 201 pay-per-view (PPV) last Sat. night (July 30, 2016) in Atlanta, Georgia (watch it), is more interested in big-money fights than working his way through top division contenders.
At at the top of every money list is Georges St-Pierre.
Fortunately for “The Chosen One,” the dormant ex-champ is still interested in making his mixed martial arts (MMA) return later this year, and told the boys at MMA Fighting he would gladly accept the opportunity to reclaim the strap he never lost with a showdown against Woodley.
I know, I know, you’ve heard this one before.
St-Pierre hung up his gloves in late 2013 and the welterweight title went on to change hands a few times in his absence. Whether or not we can actually get past the negotiating stage — with USADA and Reebok both influencing the timeline of his return — remains to be seen.
How about it, fight fans, St-Pierre … or Thompson?
