Woodley: I Believe I Won The Fight


“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.

    The first rule of the octagon.. “Never leave it in the hands of the judges”. Just suck it up big man

  2. squid says:

    yep, tyron definitely got robbed

    • Nate "THE CHEAT" Marquardt (SUCKS) says:

      All I know is Sheilds can suck the life right out of any crowd.

      Damn you would think after a fighter like Sheilds has been in the MMA game for this long would have evolved by now.

      Even Fitch actually scrapped with Eric Silva and Fitch will forever be remembered as the father of lay n pray.

      Sheilds is the father of WALL N STALL

      • GOT RID OF FITCH (forever) THANK GOD says:

        Dana was so pissed off at what Jake Sheilds did to the Winnepeg crowd that I wouldn’t doubt if his job is on the line in his next fight

        Sheilds reminds me of GSP ANT-FIGHTER

  3. K2 says:

    Pague WAS robbed, Henderson might have been robbed. Woodly didn’t do anything as far as pressing the action goes until the 3rd round. He was doing the whole “Defensive fighting” thing which under the new ABC MMA rules gets no scoring.

  4. Big J says:

    K2, I agree with your analysis, Woodley didn’t do much on offense, I don’t know how he thought he won? It was a boring fight. For Jake Shields to say he wants a top 5 contender, he’s crazy!

  5. confucius says:

    the only people who got robbed here were the viewers of the 15 minutes of our lives we will never get back

  6. Dawg doo says:

    Man dat fight waz lamer than steppin in dawg doo, ya mean? shizzzz!

  7. Luke says:

    I say Jake Shields cut out those weak kicks and just focus on improving his boxing with the Diaz brothers.

    • K2 says:

      Yeah, fighters like Shields who are excellent grapplers/BJJers should change up and start doing like 10% BJJ practice and 90% striking practice. One dimensional fighters tend to be predictable.
