Next Fight vs. Leon Edwards 3/21/20
Tyron Woodley is a mixed martial artist and former amateur wrestler who currently competes in the UFC.
After graduating from Missouri, where he wrestled collegiately, Woodley walked into a local MMA gym and asked to be on an upcoming amateur card — he ended up winning that bout in 20 seconds. Woodley turned professional after winning all seven of his amateur bouts, all by KO, TKO or submission.
Woodley made his professional debut in February 2009, and after just two bouts, he was signed by Strikeforce. He got to 10-0 before suffering his first pro loss to Nate Marquardt in a Strikeforce welterweight title fight. After Strikeforce was bought out, Woodley debuted in the UFC.
On July 30, 2016, at UFC 201, Woodley defeated Robbie Lawler to become the new UFC welterweight champion.
