It's alright Wonderboy will be back.

Author Joe Mamma ( ago)
Wonderboy needs to hang it up.

Winner of Maia vs Masvidal at 211 should fight Woodley next.

Wonderboy vs Woodley 3 The cure for Insomnia.

Author Nate Johnson ( ago)
what is happening to ufc these days. lately just boring ass fights. Woodley please stop callin yourself the greatest welterweight ever ! I dont even care about who won this cause no one did win it, especially the people who bought it.

Author Matthew Richardson ( ago)
Thompson won three rounds. We all lost $50-60 pay-per-view. That said Vannata v Teymur was one of the best fights I've seen in my life.

Author Nth Bar-Fields ( ago)
I wanted Woodley to win, but I have to say it looks like Thompson actually won, despite Woodley doing more damage. I disagree that they are afraid to finish each other. I think they are keenly aware they can be finished by the other. I will say one thing though, while I admire both fighters, I'm not interested in seeing them fight a third time. The first fight was great (which I thought Woodley won) and was probably where this chronology should have stopped.

Author nico young ( ago)
All in all, Thompson won 3 rounds and Tryon won 2.

Author Jerry G ( ago)
When Woodley had Wonderboy up against the fence and trapping that arm that's actually Is a move that is effective and should be one of Woodley's tools in the future.... Because if you watch khabibi's fights he likes to trap that arm up against the fence the same way.. I don't think Woodley realize that he had one of the best positions AND completely dominated that position... specially trapping the leg if Woodley would've just exploded at that moment dropping BOMBS 👊🏻😴the fight would've been stopped..

Author NeuralQwaruch ( ago)
Why do black fighters always make cuts to their opponent face? Is it a trick to make blood spray and the opponent to look like he has suffered a Mortal Kombat fatality , so that the judges favors Sub-Zero...?

Author Mike Hawk ( ago)
Question at 6:08 was a great question. never really thought about that before.

Author Deadly Moves ( ago)
We all know Wonderboy won that fight, and Woodley didnt nothing for 20 mins.

Author Muslim Lover of Peace Man ( ago)
i thought wonderboy lost but not by much. i love wonderboy and wonderbread too (wheat)

Author James Campfield ( ago)
Wonderboy won.

Author Andy Lee ( ago)
Wonder boy please learn to be more aggressive when fighting,hate your aponents from your toes all the way up. You will be much more effective

Author Genjuro77 ( ago)
I think Wonderboy should have gotten the decision or another draw maybe, but that fight was seriously boring..almost nothing happened for 95% of the rounds, was a snoozefest. Woodley got lucky he caught Thompson in the last minute of the fight.

Author Caveman Way ( ago)
If you take the action of the fight in general the last round was easily a 10-8. all Wonderboy had was octagon control but guess who likes being o ntrhe fence... Woodley so it wasnt really control... Wonderboy did not get up instantly, he was down for over 2 minutes and in the 5th he got owned when Woodley couldve done that 5 seconds into the fight... Wonderboy did not land the better strikes he is delusional. The fact he think he won the first fight makes him highly delusional.

Author Clyde Harrison ( ago)
I don't care who won, this fight was boring af

Author Kool Cheeze ( ago)
Tyron Woodley just back up the whole fight what a boring fighter

Author Le Rob Show ( ago)
Wonderboy vs Lawler next!

The matchup make alot of sense

Author FlyguyRyRyProduction ( ago)
I hate when fighters say "my bad, shouldn't have left it to the judges" when their game plan showed no intent to finish. Clearly point fighting and did not try to find a finish, took no chances.

Author perbe28 ( ago)
Wonderboy lost twice in a row to this ugly black dude.

Author dhalsim1 ( ago)
None of these boring shits deserved to win after circling around like that for 23mins.

Author Dwayne Hodder ( ago)
I honestly don't think wonderboy won that fight he didn't do enough, don't leave it in the hands of the judges

Author bigdaddytizzle1 ( ago)
No-one would ever want to watch these two fight again what a joke! Neither deserved to win so it's not that much of a bad decision.

Author Anthony Collins ( ago)
Anyone who says it was "boring" is clearly nothing more than a spectator. a true fan or practitioner knows it's not always throwing bombs. it's poetry in motion. a chess game, and I thought it was brillant.

Author Scott Gallagher ( ago)
Disappointing fight to watch but still thought wonderboy took it, without that last knock down at the end it was a clear win

Author Ilyavr ( ago)
that some BLM judging right there! Thompson clearly won 1,2 and 4.

Author joe smith ( ago)
Wonderboy....shut up you didn't want it enough!!!!!!!

Author joe smith ( ago)
terrible fight they both did nothing, Woodly is champ and you gotta take it from him, Wonderboy  was scared and didn't take the chances necessary to win the title !! ya gotta go for the gold he didn't!!!

Author Ant Law ( ago)
The sport is MMA not Point Karate ...

Author johanzo88 ( ago)
This guy deserves that championship. Highly respectable, no excuses, doesnt complain, top dude, awesome fighter. 3-2 for Thompson.

Author Ryan Thomas ( ago)
Steven said he would pull the trigger

Really sucks to be a Steven fan

Author TheProdigy-NL- ( ago)
Thompson won that fight ...

Author musanmusan99 ( ago)
wonderboy seems to need a brutal knock out, because he always thinks he is the winner

Author Lucky Luke ( ago)
You competed as if you were sparring. And you munchkins wonder why Connor's makin all the money? Come on, rookies.......get in that octagon and own it, chumps

Author 9tailsandstorm ( ago)
13:00 heart wrenching. Love this dudes humility. Can see the pain in his face. Class act.

Author Vince Surace ( ago)
Ahahaha....Wonderboy was out in the 5th man. Bye bye. Glad I don't have to hear this guy anymore for a while...

Author FIFASMEX ( ago)
Woodley Lost

Author Chief Blackhawk ( ago)
Hope they give Stephen a shot when Woodley loses that belt (soon lol)

Author Anthony Harris ( ago)
Glad Chosen One beat Wonderboy but damn I like Wonderboy chain I got a cubin link cross chain cool.

Author marc martine ( ago)
How can you not love Stephen Thompson? He will be back, and he has many more Wins in his future.

Author Saiga762x39mm AK47 ( ago)
The CROWD, buys tickets that pays your boring ass, dumbass.

Author Guido B ( ago)
Wonderboy won, but it was the most boring fight i've ever seen

Author m'yootoob celery ( ago)
the only reason wonderboy even won 2 rounds is because of white privlege.

Author Jason Beal ( ago)
Win, lose, or draw Stephen is a stand up sincere guy!!

Author In-Vision ( ago)
Wonderboy is a very very good fighter. he lost to Woodley 2 times. Woodley has the gameplan to beat him and he executed it 2 times. He waits, he's a wrestler. he's stronger, he's more explosive, and he played to his strenghts. We all knew It was going to be a boring fight. I didn't pay for it, but I watched the dance

Author In-Vision ( ago)
Wonderboy won the bottom slot on the judges scorecards. Repeatedly fighters don't do enough and then say, "I thought i did enough to win the fight." Well if you think you did, then you lack truth in the position you are portraying. One should say. " I KNOW THAT I WON THE FIGHT!" Learn how to listen to a man's speech. Wonderboy is a great and humble guy. I like him, but don't defend his ego talking.

Author Rich Russini ( ago)

Author Donovan Richard ( ago)
How do people say he won when he literally did nothing the entire time? He didn't go for a takedown or even try to go for a finish. He didn't do enough to take the belt off the champ.

Author W Wright ( ago)
I thought Wonderboy was supposed to be exciting to watch...

Author Ben Thompson ( ago)
He's such a nice guy as well as a great fighter👍🏻 should've won I thought!

Author Mark Soares ( ago)
"These two bozo's danced around the ring for 5 rounds and fought the last 40 seconds of the last round." Dana White probably.

Author Meat Dragon ( ago)
Wonderboy should fight Lawler and pray Maia beats Woodley.

Author Torence Jones ( ago)
If you think wonder boy got screwed you are biased.
That fight was a draw again, but whoever won that fight I would be cool with. Not a robbery at all, you have to beat the champ.
But through 10 rounds I think wood is just a better fighter with bigger tools by a super slight margin.

Author Alex Blandon ( ago)
Wonderboy 170 Champ.

Author F Marin ( ago)
Wonderboy won, Woodley didn't do anything until the last 45 seconds.

Author Dysekeru ( ago)
Wonderbread needs to learn more BJJ.

Author Jimmy Durmody ( ago)
Woodly is very UNCONVINCING champion, walking around scared 4 rounds, he didnt even touch him in first round, what was that? He needs his coach to tell him to actually fight, what terrible "champ".

Author ergo1025 ( ago)
This fight sucked. Wonderboy did nothing memorable in this fight. I wanted him to win but he didn't show for this fight.

Author KMA645 ( ago)
There's no way in hell, Tyron "the whinny one", won that fight

Author Genaro Flores ( ago)
A masterclass in fighting 'to not lose'

Author Hemo Lith ( ago)

- Wonderboy's dad

Author jason humphrey ( ago)
Dana got 100 birthday wishes in one night with hunt getting knocked the f out. congratulations uncle dana

Author jason humphrey ( ago)
Damien is going to strangle tyyyy Rome. only good thing about wonder boy losing. Either way Diaz strangled mystic wack and that's all that matters # 209 for life

Author Ronny Pen ( ago)
If it was BISPING he would have won

Author Tim Kelly ( ago)
wonderboy was robbed....

Author Tekvicious ( ago)
Guys, please temper your comments a bit. Stephen didn't hit very hard or very much, Tyron hits less often but much harder. The UFC judging criteria has changed a bit...and as it's not a POINT KARATE or TaeKwondo tournament, we have to acknowledge EFFECTIVE striking.

Author Rick Dangerous ( ago)
Tyron had 1 takedown and technically 2 knockdowns.... plus he cut wonderboy...

If Tyron didn't win then at least agree it was most certainly a DRAW.... I think Tyron won. Think about it... Tyron says to himself going in "If I can take him down, knock him down, and cut him... and he does neither of those things to me.... then I should win".... and that's exactly what happened. Wonderboy had no offence that put Tyron in danger.

Author Michael Johnston ( ago)
Worst fight i have ever watched. So incredibly boring. They both should be ashamed for everyone who paid money to watch this... Seriously

Author V Fudge ( ago)
There's not a single moment in this fight where I believe Wonderboy's goal was to finish Woodley.

Author Anthony Bly ( ago)
You got knocked down, twice no matter if you got back up or not. You wanted the fight, it's done, suck it up buttercup.

Author chris 714 ( ago)
wonder boy got robbed

Author F FF ( ago)
I had Wonderboy winning 3 too...But props to Tyron, he went after it in the 5th and almost finished him.

Author Raven Hill ( ago)
It was a close fight though.

Author Ken Freeman ( ago)

Author Raven Hill ( ago)
Tyron WON. He knocked Wonderboy down TWICE. Even though Wonderboy recovered quick, it was STILL acknowledged as a knockdown. thats how the last judge scored the close fight 10-8.

Author Milan Babic ( ago)
There wasn't fire in him like the last time. Really hoped to see him go all out. He's too much respectful to Woodley .

Author cheebawookie ( ago)
People throwing around 10-8's like they're candy...

Author John Smith ( ago)
the reason why wonderboy can't beat Woodley the way he wants to is very simple,,, when Woodley fights wonderboy he does not have to think about being taken down, meanwhile wonderboy is always has to keep the takedown in his mind, this keeps wonderboy from fully letting go. People will say oh but what about the Johny Hendrik's fight, well Johny loves to just fight standing and his MMA wrestling isn't as good as woodleys, so wonderboy didn't have to worry about the takedown and was able to let everything go standing on poor old Johny lol. Woodly vs Masvidal is the fight I wanna see. I think masvidal will box woodleys head in

Author John Berry ( ago)
Wonderboy deserves just as much criticism for that lackluster performance

Author Marcus Campbell ( ago)
...saw a side of wonderboy that had me fanned up on both he and twood before I picked sides. #class

Author dave Petit ( ago)
spent weeks listening to the podcasts and interviews leading up to this card only to have khabib pulled and the main event be one of the worst fights in a while. thank you periscope

Author Max Ruthless ( ago)
homie got folded in half in that 5th round

Author Max Ruthless ( ago)
You blew it!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Author stuntguy2012 ( ago)
Wonderboy and Gustafsson got somethin' in common aside from bein' caucashits...They both lost to negroids! lol!

Author Boss 11 ( ago)
Its all about the Tyron playing the race card!!! Only reason they gave it to him

Author kusum sharma ( ago)
that wasn't even a fight. it was a tease. no one deserve to win....this year UFC can go f emselves. boring fights all along!!

Author stinky foot lovers ( ago)
now everyone can see why McGregor makes so much money these guys are scared to actually try and finish each other Woodley did absolutely nothing apart from 1 take down and a 30 sec barrage of punches at the end then u got wonder boy point scoring and complaining he didn't win the fight if you want to win the fight finish tyron Woodley don't point score and then be upset u didn't get a decision even though I thought wonder boy won it was a boring fight because neither of them committed conner would absolutely clown Tyrone Woodley and anyone who disagrees with me put your money where your mouth is you bunch of chumps

Author Arch Gloom ( ago)
Woodley rocked him. He was holding back playing defensive game. Woodley could have finished Wonderboy if he wanted earlier in the fight . He played smart. I liked the fight.

Author Mars Khan ( ago)
Not sure why the refs give wonder boy so much time. Any other fight the ref would stop it when they go limp and drop like that

Author TfJedisuper ( ago)
these comments are giving me flashbacks to the Hendo-Bisping 2 aftermath
Pretty sure the majority opinion then was Hendo should've won because he did more damage even though he got utterly picked apart for the rest of the fight.
look at woodleys face then look at wonderboys face. by his own admission he got caught with a big shot that worried him about brain damage, and he's got a nasty cut below his eye.
Seems like all those people who were enraged at the hendo decision are enraged at this one.
Most fan outrage comes down to who they like and who they dislike., Tyrone hasn't helped himself in this regard by being a whiny prat in every interview, but i'd bet good money most of these people screaming about the integrity of the UFC rules needing to be followed and how that's how we must score fights, were the same ones screaming about how a fights should be judged as a fight and who hurt the other guy more rather than who out pointed who when Hendo lost.

Author Mars Khan ( ago)
Wonderboy lost. His chin was exposed in two fights. Twood barely touched his chin this fight

Author lebgend2009 ( ago)
Thompson definitely won that fight. Judges rigged it.

Author stonedcold ( ago)
Wonderboy didn't have a moment as significant as that takedown and 2 knockdowns. I agree with the judges. Woodley could shoot his movie right now with no makeup(pause)
