Tyron Woodley calls Joe Rogan's UFC 171 commentary 'horrendous,' feels he's being punished for being in shape
With his UFC 171 victory over Carlos Condit undeniably marred by injury, Tyron Woodley feels he's been unfairly characterized as just a fitness model brawler. Oft criticized for a slowing workrate during later rounds, Woodley experienced a noticeable drop-off in a split decision loss to Jake Shields at UFC 161 last June. Conversely, Woodley's best work typically comes in the form of spectacular first-round knockouts, as Josh Koscheck learned at UFC 167 in November.

St. Pierre at Odds with UFC Brass
Despite comments from UFC president Dana White that he "knew for a fact" that former champion Georges St. Pierre would return from his self-imposed UFC exile, an interview with St. Pierre this week makes it seem a if the fighter and promotion are further apart than ever. In addition to expressing certainty that GSP would come back, White also dismissed St. Pierre's earlier comments that part of the reason he took a leave of absence from MMA competition was because of concerns he had for illicit performance enhancing drug and treatment use among fighters and lax testing by the promotion and regulatory bodies.
