Because he'll be too busy "having fun."

"I don't think that's accurate to say I choke in every big fight, because I've been in some big fights. I think I didn't choke in the Carlos Condit fight and that was the biggest fight of my life. Carlos is a little more dangerous than Rory. He's probably one of the most dangerous and that was a big fight. I don't think that's accurate to say, but in that particular fight I was frozen. It was set up to be a better fight stylistically wise. I kind of let myself down and my training partners and coaches down. It's more important to do what I'm capable of for myself and for my family. For me it's just knowing against high-level performers you have to be on. Your light switch has to turn on no matter what you feel like, and I feel like this is my chance to go out there and redeem. We've seen the killer Tyron Woodley, we've seen the guy have some closer fights. I think it's time to consistently see the same fighter. (Fighting Kim) gives me a chance to go out there and redeem myself against another top-10 welterweight."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Tyron Woodley (via MMA Junkie) has a message for his critics (like this guy), who panned his performance against Rory MacDonald at UFC 174 last month in Vancouver, insisting he didn't "choke" against "Ares" in a bout with serious title implications. Instead, he "froze," but won't make excuses for laying an egg across the border. He does, however, plan on redeeming himself with a short-notice fight against Tyron Woodley at the UFC Fight Night 48 event in Macau (see the current fight card here) and with a win over "Stun Gun" -- particularly a finish -- "The Chosen One" could be right back in the thick of things. Do you like his chances?
