“It made me want to hurt him” – KSI is accused of having “very disrespectful” contract talks with ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley

TYRON WOODLEY has blasted KSI for his “very disrespectful” contract talks which have infuriated him.

The ex-UFC champion was in negotiations to face KSI earlier this year.

But instead, the YouTube, music and crossover boxing star agreed to fight Dillon Danis, who later withdrew.

Woodley, 40, has leaked his proposed contract with KSI, 29, who had a 175lb weight agreement and a 185lb rehydration clause.

And he told The MMA Hour: “The contract negotiations were very disrespectful and I wanted to hurt him.

“So I told his manager that. I got on the phone with his manager and said, ‘I’ve never been treated so disrespectfully in a contract in my life.’”

The original plan was for Logan Paul, 27, to compete with KSI vs Woodley against MMA fighter Danis, 29.

But Paul got injured while starring in WWE, so KSI turned to Danis instead.

Eventually, Conor McGregor’s former American training partner withdrew.

YouTuber Faze Temperrr, 29, replaced Danis instead but was eliminated in round one.


KSI is expected to return in the summer while he works towards a year-end grudge match against Paul’s brother Jake, 25.

And he included Woodley – beaten twice by Jake in the ring – alongside 9-0 boxer Joe Fournier, 40, as potential opponents.

KSI said on Twitter: “Look, I have several options. I think I’ll have a little call with my team tomorrow to find out what we’re going to do.

“There are many options. We can run a few Misfits events to try and help with our options.

“But obviously a lot of people are saying me versus Salt Papi and you know that could be an option.

“A lot of people say me and of course Fournier, me and Woodley etc.”
