Tyron Woodley confirmed on his podcast he will meet Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in a rematch at UFC 209 in Las Vegas on March 4.
“He got under my skin so much that I’m just going to go ahead and fight this dude,” Woodley said. “Like straight up. He got under my skin that bad where I don’t even care about the ration and the money and what fight makes the most sense. You need to be careful what you ask for. “Wonderboy” you want it — come get it. You want a fight, you want to get done worse than you did the first time? He’s going to get in the Octagon and he’s going to be in for a rude awakening because if he thought that was something the last time, I’m going all the way up.”
