Tyron Woodley Looking For “Redemption” Following UFC 235 Loss

It’s safe to say we did not see Tyron Woodley’s best performance the night he lost his welterwight belt to new champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in the Co-Main Event. Even Dana White speculated at the post fight press conference that Woodley may have possibly been “hurt” or had a bad training camp leading up to the fight. According to Woodley however, talking to TMZ, all things were good before entering the cage:

“I felt good in the warmups, good in the walkthrough the day of the fight, felt good in the locker room, felt good in the walk out, good when I dapped gloves with him. Something happened when we got close; there was a draining moment that I can’t really explain. A lot of people say that you have an out of body experience, where I wanted to swing hard, but I couldn’t.”

Woodley found himself on the floor or against the fence for the majority of the fight defending the pressure wrestling style of Usman. A wrestler himself, it was Usman who stalked Woodley the entire fight and imposed his style upon the former champion in a surprisingly dominate win. Woodley let it be known however, he has one focus now in his career: to get back his belt.

“I still think I’m the greatest Welterweight of all time. My path now is Redemption. I’m on a path of redemption right now, and I got to go get what’s mine.”
