    what is happening to ufc these days. lately just boring ass fights. Woodley please stop callin yourself the greatest welterweight ever ! I dont even care about who won this cause no one did win it, especially the people who bought it.

    Thompson won three rounds. We all lost $50-60 pay-per-view. That said Vannata v Teymur was one of the best fights I've seen in my life.

    I wanted Woodley to win, but I have to say it looks like Thompson actually won, despite Woodley doing more damage. I disagree that they are afraid to finish each other. I think they are keenly aware they can be finished by the other. I will say one thing though, while I admire both fighters, I'm not interested in seeing them fight a third time. The first fight was great (which I thought Woodley won) and was probably where this chronology should have stopped.

    All in all, Thompson won 3 rounds and Tryon won 2.

    When Woodley had Wonderboy up against the fence and trapping that arm that's actually Is a move that is effective and should be one of Woodley's tools in the future.... Because if you watch khabibi's fights he likes to trap that arm up against the fence the same way.. I don't think Woodley realize that he had one of the best positions AND completely dominated that position... specially trapping the leg if Woodley would've just exploded at that moment dropping BOMBS 👊🏻😴the fight would've been stopped..

    Why do black fighters always make cuts to their opponent face? Is it a trick to make blood spray and the opponent to look like he has suffered a Mortal Kombat fatality , so that the judges favors Sub-Zero...?

    Question at 6:08 was a great question. never really thought about that before.

    We all know Wonderboy won that fight, and Woodley didnt nothing for 20 mins.

  • Muslim Lover of Peace Man

    i thought wonderboy lost but not by much. i love wonderboy and wonderbread too (wheat)

    Wonder boy please learn to be more aggressive when fighting,hate your aponents from your toes all the way up. You will be much more effective

  • Genjuro77
    Genjuro77 5 months ago

    I think Wonderboy should have gotten the decision or another draw maybe, but that fight was seriously boring..almost nothing happened for 95% of the rounds, was a snoozefest. Woodley got lucky he caught Thompson in the last minute of the fight.

  • Caveman Way
    Caveman Way 5 months ago

    If you take the action of the fight in general the last round was easily a 10-8. all Wonderboy had was octagon control but guess who likes being o ntrhe fence... Woodley so it wasnt really control... Wonderboy did not get up instantly, he was down for over 2 minutes and in the 5th he got owned when Woodley couldve done that 5 seconds into the fight... Wonderboy did not land the better strikes he is delusional. The fact he think he won the first fight makes him highly delusional.

    The matchup make alot of sense

  • FlyguyRyRyProduction
    FlyguyRyRyProduction 5 months ago

    I hate when fighters say "my bad, shouldn't have left it to the judges" when their game plan showed no intent to finish. Clearly point fighting and did not try to find a finish, took no chances.

  • Immigrant Mentality Stiopic

    Wonderboy lost twice in a row to this ugly black dude.

  • dhalsim1

    None of these boring shits deserved to win after circling around like that for 23mins.

  • Dwayne Hodder

    I honestly don't think wonderboy won that fight he didn't do enough, don't leave it in the hands of the judges

  • bigdaddytizzle1
    bigdaddytizzle1 5 months ago

    No-one would ever want to watch these two fight again what a joke! Neither deserved to win so it's not that much of a bad decision.

  • Anthony Collins
    Anthony Collins 5 months ago +2

    Anyone who says it was "boring" is clearly nothing more than a spectator. a true fan or practitioner knows it's not always throwing bombs. it's poetry in motion. a chess game, and I thought it was brillant.

  • Scott Gallagher
    Scott Gallagher 5 months ago +1

    Disappointing fight to watch but still thought wonderboy took it, without that last knock down at the end it was a clear win

  • Ilyavr

    joe smith 5 months ago +1

    terrible fight they both did nothing, Woodly is champ and you gotta take it from him, Wonderboy  was scared and didn't take the chances necessary to win the title !! ya gotta go for the gold he didn't!!!

    You competed as if you were sparring. And you munchkins wonder why Connor's makin all the money? Come on, rookies.......get in that octagon and own it, chumps

    • alemama24
      alemama24 5 months ago

      Lucky Luke Connor's been finished and he built his momentum off quick left hand knockouts. He makes money off his mouth and "predictions". The hype gets him his pay day. Just because he won the last two doesn't mean he isn't nervous to be finished again.

    the only reason wonderboy even won 2 rounds is because of white privlege.

  • In-Vision
    In-Vision 5 months ago +2

    Wonderboy is a very very good fighter. he lost to Woodley 2 times. Woodley has the gameplan to beat him and he executed it 2 times. He waits, he's a wrestler. he's stronger, he's more explosive, and he played to his strenghts. We all knew It was going to be a boring fight. I didn't pay for it, but I watched the dance

  • In-Vision
    In-Vision 5 months ago

    Wonderboy won the bottom slot on the judges scorecards. Repeatedly fighters don't do enough and then say, "I thought i did enough to win the fight." Well if you think you did, then you lack truth in the position you are portraying. One should say. " I KNOW THAT I WON THE FIGHT!" Learn how to listen to a man's speech. Wonderboy is a great and humble guy. I like him, but don't defend his ego talking.

  • Rich Russini
    Rich Russini 5 months ago

    BOOED FOR 5 ROUNDS

  • Donovan Richard
    Donovan Richard 5 months ago +1

    How do people say he won when he literally did nothing the entire time? He didn't go for a takedown or even try to go for a finish. He didn't do enough to take the belt off the champ.

  • W Wright

  • Ben Thompson

    "These two bozo's danced around the ring for 5 rounds and fought the last 40 seconds of the last round." Dana White probably.

  • Meat Dragon

    Wonderboy should fight Lawler and pray Maia beats Woodley.

  • Torence Jones
    Torence Jones 5 months ago

    If you think wonder boy got screwed you are biased.
    That fight was a draw again, but whoever won that fight I would be cool with. Not a robbery at all, you have to beat the champ.
    But through 10 rounds I think wood is just a better fighter with bigger tools by a super slight margin.

  • Alex Blandon

  • Jimmy Durmody
    Jimmy Durmody 5 months ago +1

    Woodly is very UNCONVINCING champion, walking around scared 4 rounds, he didnt even touch him in first round, what was that? He needs his coach to tell him to actually fight, what terrible "champ".

  • Tekvicious
    Tekvicious 5 months ago +3

    Guys, please temper your comments a bit. Stephen didn't hit very hard or very much, Tyron hits less often but much harder. The UFC judging criteria has changed a bit...and as it's not a POINT KARATE or TaeKwondo tournament, we have to acknowledge EFFECTIVE striking.

  • Rick Dangerous
    Rick Dangerous 5 months ago +3

    Tyron had 1 takedown and technically 2 knockdowns.... plus he cut wonderboy...

    If Tyron didn't win then at least agree it was most certainly a DRAW.... I think Tyron won. Think about it... Tyron says to himself going in "If I can take him down, knock him down, and cut him... and he does neither of those things to me.... then I should win".... and that's exactly what happened. Wonderboy had no offence that put Tyron in danger.

  • Michael Johnston

  • Ken Freeman

    IT COULDNT BE ANOTHER DRAW AND THOMPSON DIDNT WIN CONVINCINGLY SO WOODLEY TOOK IT .

  • Raven Hill
    Raven Hill 5 months ago

    Tyron WON. He knocked Wonderboy down TWICE. Even though Wonderboy recovered quick, it was STILL acknowledged as a knockdown. thats how the last judge scored the close fight 10-8.

  • Milan Babic
    Milan Babic 5 months ago

    There wasn't fire in him like the last time. Really hoped to see him go all out. He's too much respectful to Woodley .

    People throwing around 10-8's like they're candy...

  • John Smith
    John Smith 5 months ago

    the reason why wonderboy can't beat Woodley the way he wants to is very simple,,, when Woodley fights wonderboy he does not have to think about being taken down, meanwhile wonderboy is always has to keep the takedown in his mind, this keeps wonderboy from fully letting go. People will say oh but what about the Johny Hendrik's fight, well Johny loves to just fight standing and his MMA wrestling isn't as good as woodleys, so wonderboy didn't have to worry about the takedown and was able to let everything go standing on poor old Johny lol. Woodly vs Masvidal is the fight I wanna see. I think masvidal will box woodleys head in

  • John Berry

    stinky foot lovers 5 months ago +13

    now everyone can see why McGregor makes so much money these guys are scared to actually try and finish each other Woodley did absolutely nothing apart from 1 take down and a 30 sec barrage of punches at the end then u got wonder boy point scoring and complaining he didn't win the fight if you want to win the fight finish tyron Woodley don't point score and then be upset u didn't get a decision even though I thought wonder boy won it was a boring fight because neither of them committed conner would absolutely clown Tyrone Woodley and anyone who disagrees with me put your money where your mouth is you bunch of chumps

    Woodley rocked him. He was holding back playing defensive game. Woodley could have finished Wonderboy if he wanted earlier in the fight . He played smart. I liked the fight.

  • Food Suem

    Not sure why the refs give wonder boy so much time. Any other fight the ref would stop it when they go limp and drop like that

    • KingInfected
      KingInfected 5 months ago

      What are you talking about? So much time? He got up instantly, and he was never out and taking heavy damage. He got dropped, defended all the punches, took none clean and got up.


    • NeuralQwaruch
      NeuralQwaruch 5 months ago

      Maybe because they saw the first match where he survived everything...

    • The Bulgarian Barbarian
      The Bulgarian Barbarian 5 months ago

      I think it's because from the 1st fight it was obvious that wonderboy could keep going in tough situations and big John waited to see if he could weather the storm


    • Food Suem
      Food Suem 5 months ago

      eRa Dreiva AND? You know how many other fighters got back up when the ref ended the fight? wonderboy dropped TWICE with the second time he went limp


  • TfJedisuper
    TfJedisuper 5 months ago

    these comments are giving me flashbacks to the Hendo-Bisping 2 aftermath
    Pretty sure the majority opinion then was Hendo should've won because he did more damage even though he got utterly picked apart for the rest of the fight.
    look at woodleys face then look at wonderboys face. by his own admission he got caught with a big shot that worried him about brain damage, and he's got a nasty cut below his eye.
    Seems like all those people who were enraged at the hendo decision are enraged at this one.
    Most fan outrage comes down to who they like and who they dislike., Tyrone hasn't helped himself in this regard by being a whiny prat in every interview, but i'd bet good money most of these people screaming about the integrity of the UFC rules needing to be followed and how that's how we must score fights, were the same ones screaming about how a fights should be judged as a fight and who hurt the other guy more rather than who out pointed who when Hendo lost.

    Wonderboy lost. His chin was exposed in two fights. Twood barely touched his chin this fight

    • NeuralQwaruch
      NeuralQwaruch 5 months ago

      It s not his chin that is weak it's him being so gun-shy that he falls backward at the least touch.
