UFC Fighters react to Thompson vs. Woodley 2

Tyron Woodley Stephen Thompson ufc 209

Current UFC welterweight title holder Tyron Woodley took on top division contender Stephen Thompson in the main event of tonight’s UFC 209 fight card in Las Vegas.

Both men were very tentative for the better portion of 25 minutes, excluding a last minute surge from Woodley which almost resulted in a fight ending stoppage.

With that said, Stephen Thompson really seemed to dictate the majority of the fight while maintaining the better octagon control.

And so, after five rounds of unpopular action the judges in attendance awarded Tyron Woodley with a majority decision victory (48-47, 47-47, 48-47).

Many fans and analysts believed the fight would be ruled a draw when the horn sounded to end round five. However, that was not the case and the welterweight division will now likely move forward from the rivalry.

Here is how fellow fighters reacted to tonight’s UFC 209 Thompson vs. Woodley main event:
