Earlier today we reported on the late night twitter affair that took place between #1 ranked UFC welterweight Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. It all started when Wonderboy posted a tweet showing that he signed a contract to rematch Woodley at UFC 209.
Well the champ himself has just confirmed via his podcast “Morning Wood” that a Wonderboy versus Woodley rematch will in fact take place at UFC 209 on March 4th.
“March 4th, UFC 209 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at what I believe to be the T-Mobile Center, you will see Wonderboy get the worst ass-whooping of his life. And hopefully all of his fans and all of his overly entitlement deceases at that moment and we can do a eulogy for it.”
UFC 209 was originally gaining momentum as it was reported that Nick Diaz would be making his long awaited return to the octagon on that card and since then there have been numerous fights thrown around to be added as well. Max Holloway versus Jose Aldo and Khabib Nurmagomedov versus Tony Ferguson have also been rumored to be on that card.
It is no doubt a fight that fans are clamoring to see again so kudos on the UFC for getting it done. Listen to Woodley’s full announcement below:
