Tyron Woodley Demands Apology From Dana White, Threatens To Leak Sensitive Information

Just when Dana White had appeared to have solved his public spat with UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, he's started another feud with a current belt holder.

There's no doubting that Tyron Woodley's decision victory over Damien Maia at UFC 214 was an absolute snoozefest, as Woodley opted for a cautious approach due to the risk of being dominated on the ground if the Brazilian landed a takedown.

The crowd booed throughout, and in his press conference after the event, Dana White did not hold back in telling everyone who would hear how unimpressed he was, and that the dull affair had directly resulted in Woodley being removed from a fight with GSP.

Woodley was always going to respond, and Ariel Helwani was only delighted to give him the platform to do so.

On Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, Woodley roared back at White by demanding an apology, and claiming that if he didn't get would he would leak sensitive information that the organisation do not want out in the open.

If you're going to publicly scrutinize me, Dana White, he needs to apologize to me. I've done nothing but good stuff for the sport. I've done nothing but be a good role model for the organization. I fight with fucking integrity. I covered your sport from the FOX desk a week before my fight. I always uphold my responsibilities with the organization.

The word behind business is 'man'. You need to be a man, and owe me a public apology. And if I don't get that, I'm going to start leaking some shit that people don't want to be out in the wind. I'm not kidding about that.

When your job title is 'promoter,' promote your fucking fighters. Promote your fucking champions.

I don't have an issue with Dana. But the thing about it is, be a straight shooter to me. That's how I operate. You come and talk to me. If you thought I had a shitty fight? Come pull me to the side before going to the podium. I'm a communicator. Come to me. I don't want to hear about it afterwards.

Yikes.

It's difficult to imagine Dana White being the sort of person who responds well to threats, so this could get ugly pretty quickly considering an apology is unlikely to come anytime soon.

Right or wrong, Woodley is playing a dangerous game here.
