Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson 2 Countdown
UFC 209 Countdown goes inside the lives of four athletes on the brink of championship greatness. The UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley & Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson fought to a thrilling five-round draw in November and must now dig deeper to find what it will take to win in their rematch.
It’s a fight that the champion Woodley feels should never have happened, at least not right now. And in his eyes and words, Wonderboy is getting an undeserved bite of the cherry in their second title fight. What we want to know is can the champion make this fight a shut out and stamp his name on the 170 lb division?
Tyron took the title from former teammate Robbie Lawler to be crowned the UFC welterweight champion. And in his original fight against Thompson, he went after his opponent throughout the first round. Scoring big and making it look as though he would be the one taking the welterweight title home.
But as the fight progressed, Thompson began to get more and more into the fight. And while Woodley had won the first round convincingly, almost stopping Wonderboy in the process. It was Stephen who would take the next three rounds.
