Tyron Woodley has his eyes set on his opponent.
After his opening round TKO win over Dong Hyun Kim in Macau, Woodley spoke to MMAFighting.com about his future plans and says that he would like to battle Matt Brown in his next match.
“A fight against Matt Brown seems most interesting,” he said. “Fans want it. He has a ton of heart and is tough as nails.
“Really looking at the landscape of the division, this fight stood out first. Granted it’s one of the toughest fights, but it’s a good match-up, people love him, he was a fight away from a title shot, ranked fifth, and fans would flip. I feel like he will bring the best out of me and test my limits. I respect him as a fighter and feel fighting him makes the most since for my career.”
As for when the fight should take place, Woodley said that he was prepared to have it added to the Johny Hendricks/Robbie Lawler 2 event.
“I would also like to do this whenever they have Johny Hendricks vs Robbie Lawler 2 and have it be the co-main event. That way there isn’t a stagger on when we all compete and run into the problem of people already being paired up, injured, or a won-loss formula doesn’t work.”
