Former light heavyweight champ Jon Jones has reached out to current welterweight Tyron Woodley according to MMAFighting.com. He offered Woodley help to defeat now interim champion and Chael Sonnen 2.0 Colby Covington and it surprised Tyron.
It funny because Jon doesn’t reach out to me very much. Jon said, ‘Hey, whatever you need, brother. I want to help you.’ I told Jon, I said, ‘Man, you work so hard for your platform, from actually kicking ass and beating legends in their prime, and being one of the greatest fighters we’ve ever seen. Don’t give him your platform.’ Because he put a post up about him.
I said, ‘I am going to kick his ass so bad, he’s gonna wish he was dead instead. He’s going to try to find a way out.’ I said, ‘So don’t worry about it.’ The dude was like, ‘It can’t happen soon enough.
Woodley vs Covington is a big money fight and having Jon Jones in your corner is something most would welcome.
