The guy started out as a D1 wrestling champion at Mizzou, began training mma with rafeal cordeiro after graduating college and had his first fight shortly afterwards. After dismantling zack light, Woodley put his name up there as one of the best mma prospects in the ww division. He later became the strikeforce champ and his only loss was to a roided up nathan marquartz. After making it to the ufc, he put the division on notice with a few deadly performances. He arguably beat jake shield by a clear cut 30-27 decision but ended up losing a highly controversial split decision. The controversy didn't end there as shield ended up testing positive for steroids, thus proving that you have to cheat to beat t Woodley. After crushing the best in the ufc ww division he finally got his shot at the gold. All the mma outlets and pundits picked robby lawler to win via standing ko or by submission. Nobody gave Woodley a chance. However, everybody forgot about his muay thai training eith rafeal cordeiro. Woodley perfected his technique and mastered striking skills needed to complete his mma skill trifecta. We all know he can wrestle and grapple, but he wanted to show his elite level muay thai that took years to perfect. Tyrannosaurus woodley was able to shut down robby lawler and ko him with techniques so flawless, even remy bonjasky gave him praise. Woodley has now completed his quest for dominance and is the ufc ww champ, and solidified his status as one of the 6 greatest wws in mma history. Congratulations tyron. You earned it buddy! Now show the world what top flight skill can do, and become the greatest fighter ever. I know you will!
