Fighter of the Month (July’ 16) Tyron Woodley


Organization: UFC

Class: Welterweight

Record: 16-3

Last Fight: Robbie Lawler (UFC 201 Lawler v. Woodley)

Reason: “The Chosen One” played the role of spoiler to close out the month of July and barely made the cut as July had some stellar cards but his shocking knockout of “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler was not only a shocker but completely unexpected as many of us expected a war with Lawler who is not only durable but has taken some punishment from some of the divisions elite. The future looks bright for another former Strikeforce product and there is definitely plenty of competition who will want to see if the moniker of “The Chosen One” is true. Congrats to Tyron Woodley for capturing gold along with Fighter of the Month honors for July.
