Tyron Woodley finally reached the pinnacle of the mixed martial arts (MMA) mountain after knocking out Robbie Lawler in the very first round last night (Sat., July 30, 2016) at UFC 201 in Atlanta, Georgia to claim the Ultimate FIghting Championship (UFC) Welterweight title.
Shortly after the biggest win of his career, Woodley spoke to the UFC on FOX Sports crew and reflected on his monumental achievement. Plus, he also looked forward to his next challenges, which could include big fights against Nick Diaz and former division champion, Georges St-Pierre.
Sorry, Stephen Thompson.
Furthermore, Woodley spoke about the pressure he felt about going to work back on the FOX desk without the belt, as he would be expecting some friendly ridicule from his colleagues and fellow champions, Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier and Dominick Cruz.
