Israel Adesanya, Tyron Woodley Exchange Words On Social Media, Leon Edwards Gets Involved

Tyron Woodley

Israel Adesanya and Tyron Woodley got into it on social media.

It all began when Woodley signaled his intentions of moving up to middleweight in the future. He added that he didn’t see the hype about Adesanya — the current 185-pound champion — and that “The Last Stylebender” was scared of fighters with power.

And so, Adesanya responded soon after.

“Lol see me see trouble…whala just dey find me anyhow.@TWooodley can’t even deal with one Nigerian Nightmare @USMAN84kg when he was at 30%. Oboy sit down before I lash your nyash well well ?”

Adesanya, of course, is referring to Woodley losing his welterweight title to Kamaru Usman in a lopsided decision defeat back at UFC 235 in March last year.

It didn’t take long for “The Chosen One” to respond:

“U the great white hype! I ain’t hard to find! You terrified of power. You watched paint dry against @YoelRomeroMMA & now u have the record for least amount of strikes. Fix that fake a** @BOOSIEOFFICIAL Box before he come looking for you! @ufc gone protect @stylebender too?!

Leon Edwards — who was supposed to face Woodley at UFC London last month before it was canceled — then entered the conversation:

Woodley would not let that slide.
