According to Tyron Woodley, Georges St-Pierre declined a rewarding deal to combat him.
Woodley exposed that he released his own battle promo, The Realest International Promotion (TRIP), which he’s seeking to complete in himself. Woodley, a previous UFC welterweight champ, made his very first 2 deals to significant names in MMA, however neither accepted. St-Pierre, a previous UFC welterweight and middleweight champ, has actually made it clear on several events that he has no intent to eliminate once again.
“I’m seeking to battle guys that are famous to me,” Woodley informed TMZ, “that I seem like might not have actually gotten the regard and the cash that they must have gotten when they were at the top of the top. Like Georges St-Pierre, I used him a dumb bag. He stated no. ‘I’m not because world any longer.’ I provided Nick Diaz a dumb bag. When I state dumb, I imply pressing to 8 figures, a great deal of cash. … They both stated no.
“Sorry, Nick didn’t state no. Nick liked the remark, so I do not understand what that suggests. Individuals that I appreciate, individuals that I believed were GOATs, and now that the cash is coming to the sport, I desire to go to those individuals initially to get them paid with me since it’s a collaboration. Whether I like Jake (Paul) or not, I was an organization partner with him for 2 battles. This is a company, you got a partner, it’s not choreographed.”
Woodley states his promo will not simply have to do with battling.
“It’s called The Realest International Promotion, TRIP,” Woodley stated. “We’re promoting all things art, so we’re not simply doing blended martial arts. Clearly I would be a fool not to do that even if that’s my background and my base. We’re doing music, shows, celebrations, cryptocurrency, e-sporting occasions, boxing, and after that we simply doing a great deal of crossover.”
