Till was the favorite coming into his first title fight in the UFC, which further added to the chip on Woodley’s shoulder. Tyron Woodley held onto his WW championship belt tonight after sinking in a D’arce choke after some brutal ground and pound.
You’ve got to give props to Till who showed that he’s got no shortage of toughness or heart, but it wasn’t enough to get him through to the end of the round, thanks to Woodley’s relentless assault.
If the fight had continued, Woodley was looking pretty tired, so it would have been interesting to see how it could have turned out… but we’ll have to wait and see when these two inevitably cross paths again.
“There’s a lot of people who are hating against me, but there’s more people who are with me.” – Tyron Woodley
When asked what’s next, Woodley said he’s got a song with Wiz Khalifa dropping next week
In his post fight interview, Till said:
He still plans to solidify as one of the best fighters ever, but that it really hurts in the meantime. There’s no doubt we’ll be seeing this 25 year old in fights at the top of the division for years to come.
