Tyron Woodley Reports no One’s Stepping “up to the Plate” to Fight WW Champ

Recently Tyron Woodley reported that he’s started training for a bout in July, but it looks like the welterweight champ’s having trouble finding an opponent.

Woodley reported last week that he’ll be fighting in July, but didn’t say what card or who he’ll face. But, in the latest edition of “UFC Unfiltered”, Woodley had this to say (quote via MMA Junkie):

“There’s a lot of fighters who say, ‘I’ll fight anybody, anytime, anywhere,’ but they really don’t mean that,” Woodley said. “If Conor McGregor wanted to fight me, he has an opportunity to do so. So does (Michael) Bisping. So does Georges St-Pierre. So does Nick Diaz. So does Nate Diaz.

“All these guys have a chance to step up to the plate. But ain’t nobody picked up the bat.”

Well, we know that GSP is facing Bisping, those guys are out, and McGregor’s waiting for Floyd Mayweather Jr. and is expecting his first child. But, who knows, maybe Nate or Nick Diaz will step up?
