ANAHEIM, Calif. – Since claiming the UFC welterweight title one year ago, Tyron Woodley has been tested by two of the most unique styles in the sport.
Woodley defended his title for the second time, defeating Demian Maia in a near-shutout unanimous decision at UFC 214 on Saturday night at the Honda Center.
Woodley won the fight, but it was poorly received by viewers.
According to Fightmetric, Woodley defended 24 takedown attempts by Maia.
UFC president Dana White said during fight week that Woodley would get St-Pierre next with a win on Saturday.
White said Saturday that after the way Woodley fought against Maia, he intends to change course.
