Tyron Woodley is a man with a double life.
By day, he's an anonymous full-time student chasing a Master's degree in public administration from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. By night, he is an undefeated rising star in the Strikeforce welterweight division.
It's a scenario that inevitably lends itself to the occasional distraction.
"Sometimes I'm in class thinking, 'I'm ready to go. I've been here for three hours and I need to get out of here,'" he said. "My classmates are debating public policy or budget reform or insurance issues, and all I'm thinking about is punching somebody in the face."
Yet the 28-year-old Woodley is equally passionate about both of his goals with the same hope of inspiring the younger generation.

Tyron's an awesome guy. Chatted with him a few times, he's a really genuine person. I hope he takes it to Galvao, and I see no reason he won't.
