UFC President wasn’t shy about his disappointment with the performance of Tyron Woodley at UFC 214 on Saturday night.

Tyron Woodley is upset with White as well.

Woodley had plenty to say during an appearance on “The MMA Hour” on Monday and didn’t hold back his feelings.

“If you’re going to publicly scrutinize me — Dana White, he needs to apologize to me,” Woodley said (h/t ESPN).

“I’ve done nothing but good stuff for the sport. I’ve done nothing but be a good [role] model for the organization. I fight with f—ing integrity. I covered your sport from the FOX desk a week before my fight. I always uphold my responsibilities with the organization.

“The word behind business is ‘man.’ You need to be a man, and owe me a public apology. And if I don’t get that, I’m going to start leaking some s— that people don’t want to be out in the wind. I’m not kidding about that.”

Woodley was upset with White’s post-fight press conference comments where he said “If you ask fans if they want to see Woodley fight again, I think that will be a flat out ‘no,’

“Who wants to pay to see Tyron Woodley fight again?”

Woodley took issue.

“When your job title is ‘promoter,’ promote your f—ing fighters. Promote your f—ing champions,” Woodley told “The MMA Hour.”

“I don’t have an issue with Dana. But the thing about it is, be a straight shooter to me. That’s how I operate … you come and talk to me. If you thought I had a s—ty fight? Come pull me to the side before going to the podium. … I’m a communicator. Come to me. I don’t want to hear about it afterwards.”
