Woodley and Thompson Fight to Majority Draw in UFC 205 Co-Main Event

Tyron Woodley vs Thompson

Following his UFC 205 title defence against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (13-1-1), Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) is still the UFC welterweight champion, but only just. Following five rounds of back and forth action the UFC 205 co-main event was determined to be a draw.

In the lead up to the bout Woodley conceded that Thompson was a puzzle, but insisted on more than one occasion that his team had figured out how to solve it. In the first round it appeared that he might be right. After a tentative opening couple of minutes, Woodley caught Thompson committing to a kick and took him down to the mat. The champion controlled the action from top position, before unloading in the final thirty seconds of the round. A pair of elbows sliced up the bridge of Thompson’s nose and left him walking back to his corner wearing a crimson mask when the round ended.

Thompson’s recovery was impressive. Over the next two rounds Wonderboy found a rhythm that the champion could not deal with. Thompson picked Woodley off, landing slick combinations and keeping him at bay with kicks.

With his young championship reign in the balance, Woodley dominated what was ultimately the decisive round when he needed to. Woodley managed to land a right hand that dropped the challenger and refused to give Thompson any breathing space. Once Woodley dropped him a second time, and swarmed all over Thompson looking for a finish referee Dan Miragliotta was right on top of the action. Woodley went on to tighten up a guillotine, but Thompson somehow survived, eventually escaping near the end of the fourth and ending the round on top with hope left that he could still win the title.

The fifth was all Thompson, picking a seemingly tired Woodley apart for the majority of the final five minutes. As the fighters awaited the judge’s decision the real question was whether the fourth round had been scored a 10-8 for Woodley. It had…by one judge. Another scored the first round 10-8 for Woodley, while scoring the fourth round a 10-9.

There was more drama to come though as Bruce Buffer first stopped his announcement to leave the cage and check with officials, then read out scores of 48-47 Woodley, 47-47 and 47-47. The fight was originally called by Buffer as a split decision victory for the champion, but the mistake was rectified while Woodley was giving his post fight interview. The fight had ended in a majority draw. Tyron Woodley had escaped with his title belt.
