Vin Diesel, we ain't mad – but if you think you're going to beat wrestling legend Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in a tussle, you tripping, bro.

However, according to UFC star Tyron Woodley, this is indeed the case...

Appearing on TMZ Sports, Woodley revealed that during an encounter at the Hollywood premiere of Guardians 2, Diesel was adamant he would "flex" on The Rock if it came to fisticuffs.

"Vin Diesel yelled at me yesterday at the party because I said in a fight versus him and The Rock, I gave it to The Rock," said Woodley.

"So he pulled up on me. Not in a violent way but he said 'C'mon man, I would flex on The Rock'," he added. "And he said he would flex on The Rock. I'm starting trash, I'm starting trash!"

Whatever their differences, Diesel and Johnson will have to put them to one side for the good of Fast & Furious 9, as both actors will be returning for the franchise's next outing.

The pair have been the subject of headlines ever since The Rock hit out at unnamed male cast members while shooting Fast & Furious 8, calling them "chicken shit" candy-asses in an Instagram rant – although Diesel has since played down the rift.

Fast & Furious 8 is out now – watch a trailer below:
