Tyron Woodley Talks About Facing Jay Hieron at UFC 156
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.02.2013

MMAjunkie Radio spoke with former Strikeforce fighter Tyron Woodley who makes his UFC debut at UFC 156 against Jay Hieron. Here are some highlights:

Woodley on facing Hieron: "Me and Jay have known each other for a while. We never trained together. I think we always knew that this was going to happen...He was in Strikeforce, and I thought we might bump heads there; now it's the UFC. But it's no disrespect. You don't have to hate somebody to want to win the fight. I think that he has that mindset. I have that mindset, so we'll get in there and get after each other. After the fight, it will be no hard feelings."

Woodley on visualizing the fight: "Every time I run or do cardio, I really just visualize the fight visualize the round, match the five minutes to the five minutes on the treadmill or elliptical. I really play the fight out, and I really start thinking that all the hard work I've put in to here, all the training, the work is done. I just have to relax, go out there, be myself, fight hard and do the things that I know that I can do. I never thought I was not going to make it to the UFC. It's not like, 'Oh, I finally made it.' This was an inevitable process."

Woodley on being in the UFC now: "I'm not really focusing on making it to the UFC; I'm focusing on chopping down this ladder and getting to the top. This is a stepping stone. It's all business, though. I'm ready to get it on."
