In an interview with Jonathan Shrager for The UnderGround, Ray was asked to comment on the crowd reaction to Woodley at the UFC 205 press conference.

“The reason he was booed was because Tyron blatantly turned down the ‘call out’ by the #1 contender (Wonderboy) when Wonderboy was doing commentary for Fox Sports 1 the night Tyron won the belt,” responded Ray. “Tyron said that Stephen could go fight Robbie Lawler and that he (Tyron) is going to go fight fighters with bigger names like GSP or Nick Diaz who would make for bigger ‘money fights.’ Guys that haven’t fought for some time.

“What was really bad about that situation was that when Tyron was the #1 contender we whined about not getting his title shot. The fans SLAMMED him on social media about that!! They were relentless!! He also started calling Stephen names like Wonderwoman, etc and told some lies about Stephen so that’s when I went on social media and spanked him.

“I never saw where he responded to me after I did that. I tweeted to him that he, the UFC welterweight champion just got SKOOLED by a 61-year-old grandpa on SM. He never responded but the fans did and they backed me up 100% afterward. Well maybe not 100%, Tyron did have a couple supporters!”

Ray noted in closing that he is now known as Wonderdad by the Wonderfans.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
