Tyron Woodley Not Pleased With Draw At UFC 205

Tyron Woodley was happy to leave UFC 205 as the reigning welterweight champion.

But he wasn’t happy to leave with a “W” on his resume.

Woodley and Stephen Thompson was originally declared a win for the champion. After some confusion, the result was changed to a majority draw, which mean “The Chosen One” was still champion – but not the winner.

“I don’t know what to think,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s a big difference to get the draw than to get the win but I’ll take either over a loss any day. I just hate leaving the Octagon in that type of situation. I had some good moments. I could’ve pressed him more but I feel like the only significant damage done in that fight was by me.

“I should’ve created a little more distance when I rocked him so I could land more shots and end it. I went for the guillotine and feel like that was a bad decision. Even then, I thought that was close to a 10-8 round. I don’t agree with the draw. I thought I won but he’s a tough kid and it was a great fight.”

Woodley, who won the title from Robbie Lawler earlier this year, was actually an underdog entering his first title defense.
