Tyron Woodley is in for the fight of his life when he takes on Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson at UFC 205 next month, and appears to be training hard for it.
“The Chosen One” brought the cameras around as he prepares for “Wonderboy” at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden for the UFC’s historic first ever event in the Empire State.
See for yourself how Woodley looks and how the welterweight champ is preparing for a dangerous striker in Thompson.
Woodley will be defending his title for the first time since winning if after brutally knocking out former welterweight champ Robbie Lawler at UFC 201.
“Wonderboy” immediately called Woodley out after “The Chosen One” won the title.
Now, the two will do battle at the UFC’s first event in New York, more specifically at the famed Madison Square Garden.
“Wonderboy” earned his shot at UFC gold after being the first man to ever finish former champ Johny Hendricks with strikes, and following that up with a dominant win over perennial contender Rory McDonald.
While “Wonderboy” quickly called for the fight, Woodley initially had other plans in mind, and was angling for a fight with Nick Diaz who had just come off of his suspension.
“Wonderboy” is now riding an impressive seven fight win streak, with a near-perfect 13-1 record. That one loss happened against Matt Brown earlier in Thompson’s career before he developed into the striking machine he is today.
In Woodley’s Champ Camp video, “The Chosen One” is filmed as he prepares for the unusual striking of Stephen Thompson, and walks you through a typical day in Woodley’s training camp.
Who do you see winning between Woodley and “Wonderboy”? Will the champion retain his belt? Or will Thompson keep his win streak going and take home the title? Sound off, PENN Nation!
