‘I’m getting way better and it’s scary to me because I got another level’ – Tyron Woodley speaks out ahead of fight against Vicente Luque

Woodley faces Luque in the co-main event of UFC 260.

Tyron Woodley will be back in action this week against Vicente Luque in the co-main event of UFC 260. The number 7 ranked welterweight contender, despite being 38 years old, feels there is still a lot left in him. A win here might probably even propel him into the top 5 of the welterweight rankings.

Speaking in an interview with Ariel Helwani in Helwani’s MMA Show, Woodley revealed that he is currently on a different level, and would go nowhere when asked by Ariel if he would walk away from the sport if he wins this fight against Luque.

I had my best day on the last day‘ – Tyron Woodley

Woodley said, “I don’t think so. I’m getting way better and it’s scary to me because I got another level…My last day of training I exceeded everything, every training session, every rep. I had my best day on the last day…I got another level and many people saying I got another gear and all my coaches agreeable on it, I want to tap into that level.” [H/T LowBro-Sports]

Tyron Woodley is currently stuck in a rut, he is coming off three consecutive losses, with his most recent one coming against Colby Covington in September 2020. He lost the match via. TKO in the fifth round, due to a rib injury. The former welterweight champion will be backing his striking power come 27th of March.

Luque, on the other hand, is on a two-match win streak, with his last victory coming over Randy Brown in August 2020. The American-born Brazilian has never been finished in his career and Woodley would be wary of that.
