Matches to Make After UFC 209

Then Woodley took center Octagon in the fifth and finally got untracked, rocking Thompson with a bunch of big shots and getting him into deep trouble.

At UFC 205, reigning champ, Tyron "The Chosen One" Woodley held his title against No. 1 ranked Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson with a majority draw decision, although the UFC reported Woodley as having a higher amount of total strikes during the fight, 113 to Thompson's 60.

After a slow bout, Woodley was awarded a close majority decision (one judge scored it a 47-47 draw, while the other two scored it 48-47 Woodley).

Mark Godbeer and Daniel Spitz gassed out after the first round of their heavyweight bout, making for a sloppy final two rounds.

The 33-year-old Ferguson has won nine straight fights since that loss to Johnson, and this matchup was the biggest showcase of his career. "They're not in there fighting Tyron Woodley or 'Wonderboy.' A lot was at stake, and these guys fought the way they needed to fight to win".

Conversely, Thompson landed at a 41 percent rate and did not have either a knockdown or takedown of Woodley. From there it was a wild flurry of action as Woodley pounced on his fallen opponent, and Thompson struggled to get back to his feet. It's a fight that's drawn a fair amount of interest, but now must carry the fight card. Thompson, however, pressured and controlled the champion for much of the five-round outing.

"Tyron Woodley, I didn't even know he was coming to our gym; he showed up one day and we hit it off", Roufus told me when we spoke late last month for the Camp Update series on

All four fights have strong potential, but none were devoted the attention of Woodley vs. Thompson II.

With a fight so close the first time around, we thought it would be a great idea to introduce Champions Picks, where we poll MMA fighters, fans and the Champions staff to pick the winners of major UFC cards. "I've been longing for that setup and he didn't know it". Woodley pounced on him and went for the finish, and referee John McCarthy was watching carefully, prepared to stop it.

Woodley appears agravated that he has to face Thompson again despite the inconclusive result in their first fight. Furthermore Alistair Overeem (256) of Netherlands and Mark Hunt (265) of Australia are battling out in the rematch.

David Teymur, 27, will go up against Lando Vannata, 24, in the other co-main event after Khabib Nurmagomedov, 28, was hospitalized during a weight cut, according to MMAJunkie.

However, it hasn't ended there, though, as their fellow UFC professionals have also reacted to the fight, and as expected, some of them aren't too happy with what they saw on Saturday night.

My ultimate goal is to be a world champion, so I just need to work my way up there until I get that shot.
