It all began on Sunday night when Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson tweeted a photo of a Bout Agreement signed by him regarding a rematch against Woodley at UFC 209. The Bout Agreement photo was accompanied by a photo of both men getting their hand raised at UFC 205, and captioned: “Waiting on you”.
Just 3 minutes after that, the welterweight champion replied and tried to trick Thompson into falling for the old “Boffa” joke. Both men exchanged tweets for a few minutes, then Woodley went in for the kill and posted the overall stats for the fight. All the numbers favored the champion, to which Thompson replied by asking Woodley if left the octagon feeling satisfied.
To make things more interesting, UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn joined the conversation with a piece on ‘Wonderboy’ about how he claimed he would show a different side of himself in the rematch. Woodley immediatly discredited Thompson’s statement saying it was impossible to achieve that.
