KSI accused of ‘very disrespectful’ contract talks with ex-UFC champ Woodley
TYRON WOODLEY has slammed KSI over his “very disrespectful” contract talks which left him fuming.
The ex-UFC champion was in negotiations to face KSI earlier in the year.
But instead, the YouTube, music and crossover boxing star agreed to fight Dillon Danis, who later pulled out.
Woodley, 40, leaked his proposed contract with KSI, 29, which had an agreement to weight 175lb and a rehydration clause of 185lb.
And he said on The MMA Hour: “The negotiation of the contract was very disrespectful, and it made me want to hurt him.
“So I told this to his manager. I was on a call with his manager and I said, ‘Never in my life have I been disrespected like this in a contract.’”
The plan was initially for Logan Paul, 27, to face MMA fighter Danis, 29, with KSI against Woodley.
But Paul got injured while starring in the WWE, so KSI instead turned to Danis.
Eventually the American former training partner of Conor McGregor pulled out.
YouTuber Faze Temperrr, 29 instead replaced Danis but was knocked out in round one.

KSI is set to return in the summer as he builds towards an end of year grudge match against Paul’s brother Jake, 25.
And he included Woodley – twice beaten by Jake in the ring – alongside 9-0 boxer Joe Fournier, 40, as potential opponents.
KSI said on Twitter: “Look, I’ve got several options. I think tomorrow I’m going to have a little call with my team, figure out what we’re going to do.
“There’s plenty of options. We can have a few Misfits events to try and help with our options.
“But obviously a lot of people are saying me versus Salt Papi, and you know that could be an option.
“A lot of people are saying me and obviously Fournier, me and Woodley, etc.”
