Last night UFC 201 was a better fight card than I originally thought it would be. There were few knock outs during the prelims fights. One fight that needs to be watched in case you missed it, was Matt Brown vs Jake Ellenberger. Ellenberger laid a massive kick to Brown in the liver. That match lasted only 40 seconds. Brown has to be feeling the effects of that kick today.
Now to the main event, Robbie Lawler (C) vs Tyron Woodley (4). This is Woodley first chance at a title fight since being in the UFC. His last chance was in strike force in 2012. Both men workout and train in Coconut Creek, FL. When it comes to the matchup between these two fighters, they are almost the same. One big difference is Lawler’s experience (27-10) is much longer than Woodley’s career (15-3). Lawler, who’s fighting style is more mixed martial arts. Woodley is more of a freestyle fighter with some wrestling moves mixed in.
The fight started with both men trying to read each other out. Lawler knows that Woodley is known for his speed and quick hands. It didn’t take long for Woodley to land a strong right hand to Lawler face, and down went the champ. Woodley kept striking him until the ref called the fight. The fight lasted 2:12. Now UFC has a new Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley
