“I said he wasn’t going to take me down and I meant that. He tried 18 times; he got zero takedowns. From a statistics standpoint I was pretty overwhelmed with the fact that I was 64% on punching, I kicked him and dropped him to the ground twice, and I spinning back fisted him and he got zero takedowns. For me, I would have liked to throw more punches.”
“Do I believe I won the fight? 100%, but as a person that’s been petitioning and hunting down a world title, that type of performance for myself, I have to be able to let it go no matter if it’s Jake Shields or who it is. I made him miss so many punches; I just want to watch the video again, he missed almost 80% of his punches.”
In an interview with Sherdog.com, Tryon Woodley stated he thought that he won the fight against Jake Shields on Saturday Night.
If was a close one, there wasn’t a lot of significant action to score, but the judges saw it in favor of Shields, who was constantly moving forward and pressuring Tryon.
That forward pressure was apparently enough to convince two-judges to give him the nod, but unfortunately for Shields, the boss, UFC President Dana White, thinks Woodley got robbed.
