No hard feelings! Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Tyron Woodley was hopping mad when he heard that UFC 183 co-main event opponent, Kelvin Gastelum, was nine pounds overweight for their Jan. 31 showdown in Las Vegas, Nevada. Time, apparently, heals all wounds. "The kid lost, it was his first loss and he's not going to get his win bonus," Woodley told reporters at the UFC 183 post-fight press conference (watch it here).
