Tyron Woodley says Khabib Nurmagomedov isn't a top-10 fighter of all-time

Cole Shelton - October 5, 2022

Tyron Woodley doesn’t think Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the top-10 fighters of all time. Nurmagomedov retired with a record of 29-0 and many consider him one of the greatest, but a knock on him was he retired too early and there were still many fights for him to take. Yet, after his father’s passing, he didn’t want to fight anymore. So, for Woodley, he says Khabib isn’t on his all-time top-10 list.

Sage Northcutt

Tyron Woodley says the UFC pressed former fighters Sage Northcutt and Paige VanZant too quickly: “I was his training partner, I’m telling you, he wasn’t ready”

Cole Shelton - June 17, 2022

Tyron Woodley believes the UFC pushes fighters too quickly and Sage Northcutt and Paige VanZant are the perfect examples. The UFC often signs young, up-and-coming prospects but the problem with them fighting in the UFC so young is the fact they are fighting the best in the world, which is a problem according to Woodley. Along with that, the promotion has to carefully matchmake them which they didn’t do to both Northcutt and VanZant as both struggled and ultimately left the UFC.
