“So when he reached out, I said, ‘Hell yeah, let’s get him in. He’s holding me accountable – ‘Can’t do that; tonight we’re doing this, how much you weigh?’ We’ve had a long career because of our IQ and because we put ourselves in uncomfortable situations in training so that we can thrive in the Octagon. And I want to see him do well. I want to see him continue to make the money, do what he wants to do. And he wants to see me back on top"- Tyron Woodley said to ESPN.
Tyron Woodley further added that Gamebred has motivated him to use his own career and what he did back in 2019. The former UFC Welterweight Champion said that he is thankful to the BMF Champion in helping him to erase some toxic points from his life.
"He hit me up personally about a year and a half ago and told me there were some toxic things in my life that I needed to erase, and I’ve erased those things. Now I can breathe, now I can float. Now I’m back, and it feels good, and I have to thank him for that.”- added Tyron Woodley.
