"[Rory MacDonald] dominated Woodley tonight. He shut Woodley down and made Woodley look like he didn't even belong in there. He choked in the big fight tonight. He needed to come and out and try to rip that head off in the third round he didn't even do that. He threw a few punches, missed, and just sorta set back into the way he fought the rest of the fight. He got beat tonight. He got beat mentally, he got beat physically, he's got a ways to go. Seems like he chokes in the big fights."
Did history repeat itself? Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White (via FOX Sports) is under the impression that Tyron Woodley "chokes" in big fights, likely referencing his knockout loss to Nate Marquardt for the Strikeforce welterweight title back in July 2012. "The Chosen One" was once again shut down in a big spot, this time by Rory MacDonald at the UFC 174 pay-per-view (PPV) last Sat. night (June 14, 2014) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (replay here), despite months of yapping about his place among the 170-pound elite. Woodley now heads to the back of the line while MacDonald likely gets one step closer to gold. For full results from UFC 174 click here.
