UFC Champ Tyron Woodley I'm Training Mayweather ... For MMA Fight!

"That fight happens at the end of the year, me and Conor", Lee said at a UFC 222 media scrum. "I think that's the fight that everybody's been looking forward to, and is right there within striking distance". - Tyron Woodley speaking on TMZ Sport's The Hollywood Beatdown.

This is just the latest chapter in the never-ending saga that is the Mayweather and the UFC.

Nightclub shut down by police for walking a horse onto dancefloor
A petition to revoke the club's licence was set up and pulled in more than 1,000 signatures within hours. "It's a horse, a real horse", a clubgoer is heard saying.


Woodley suggests that Mayweather could absolutely win in the cage and he has the ideal gameplan devised for him.

That all seems a bit far-fetched if the goal here is to fight Conor McGregor, but not so long ago Mayweather's camp brought up CM Punk's name as a potential opponent, and given that he's still just an MMA novice himself, if that cringworthy match-up was made then anything could happen. Floyd Mayweather has been teasing a transition into MMA like a politician, flipping and flopping on whether it will really happy or not. So it's the same thing to stop the shot before it gets to us through footwork. "Blocking kicks. There's no point in him trying to learn how to kick". Defending kicks, identifying when a body is about to throw a kick. If he comes back and when he fights, then.if he beats Tony Ferguson then obviously he'll have it.

Elon Musk crashes SXSW to debut SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch footage
At max velocity Starman and the Roadster will travel 11 km/s (7mi/s) and travel 400 million km (250 million mi) from Earth. Back in early February, SpaceX sent Falcon Heavy into outer space with a very unique payload on board.


"How many guys in the UFC that can't wrestle and can't grapple, consider themselves a stand-up fighter?"

While an obvious scenario would most certainly be McGregor submitting the world-class striker, Woodley challenges that narrative by pointing to the Irishman's lack of grappling skills. You got Conor, that has a belt, but the man is not a champion and I think he even knows that.

TL;DR: Bairstow blitz powers England to series win
After achieving one milestone, Bairstow stepped up a gear. "I'm absolutely delighted to score the hundred off 58 balls". Not for the first time, it was the bowlers who put England in contention, restricting New Zealand to 223 all out.


"Conor is not that great of a wrestler". So if he can't land one of those kicks on Floyd and can't take him down...
