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.
