Tyron Woodley continues to stay in the headlines, but not for his Jake Paul fight as it looks like he and Hector Lombard have some issues to sort out.
At the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) event on Friday night, the card made headlines for more than one reason. Initially, it seemed that most of the attention was on the main event fight between Paige VanZant and Rachel Ostovich, although there were plenty of little events within this big one.
At BKFC 19, in the crowd, former champion Tyron Woodley was seen in a heated altercation with former UFC fighter Hector Lombard. Apparently, the feud was over a girl who Woodley was allegedly seeing, who also happens to be Lombard’s ‘side girl’.
In the video footage, the two are arguing, and Lombard is visibly frustrated and insists that Woodley got with his side girl. With a look of confusion, it seems “The Chosen One” is unsure of what exactly is unraveling or how to go about solving the dispute.

While the two never came to blows, it seemed like it was getting pretty close. Eventually, the former UFC champ walked away, but the dispute appears to be far from over.
On August 29, Woodley is set to take on Jake Paul and it will likely serve as the biggest payday in his fighting career. Without a doubt, it’s wise for “The Chosen One” to keep his hands to himself as an unsanctioned brawl with Lombard could definitely force him out of his blockbuster 190lbs boxing match with Jake Paul.
As we get closer and closer to the fight day, things between Woodley and Paul are heating up. The latest stunt came out of their press conference where the two decided to make a tattoo deal should one of them lose. If Paul loses, Woodley will have to tattoo “I Love Jake Paul” on his body, and the same goes for Paul if he loses to Woodley.
What do you make of the confrontation between Tyron Woodley and Hector Lombard? Do you think they will ever fight?
