Tyron Woodley Releases Statement On Loss, Broken Rib

Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley suffered his 3rd straight loss this weekend at UFC Las Vegas 11. He clutched his rib as his fight with Colby Covington was stopped in the 5th round on Saturday. Woodley released a video statement regarding the loss and rib injury he suffered during the fight via Instagram.

“I’m not retiring, I’m not giving it up,” Woodley said. “I’m not switching all my coaches up, I’m not changing the continent I live on, I’m not doing all that.”

Woodley continued to talk about what motivated him to not give up in the fight.

“Some s**t didn’t happen and guess what? I don’t know why it didn’t happen. I did everything to make it happen. Now we just take a deep breath and see what’s next.”

UFC President Dana White was critical of Woodley following the fight.

“Woodley’s had this throughout his career,” White said. “He’ll come out and knock a guy out explosively and whatever and then have a fight where they lay on the fence for 5 rounds.”

A scan of Woodley’s rib was also released to ESPN:
