The Walkmen: UFC 209 ‘Woodley vs. Thompson 2’

LAS VEGAS -- The loss of the UFC 209 co-main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson left a void in the hearts of MMA fans across the globe. However, the 11 bouts that remained provided enough to quench their thirst, and the musical choices of the 22 fighters involved only added to the flavor. Defending Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder Tyron Woodley was out to prove himself the better man in his rematch with Stephen Thompson in the main event on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena. Woodley strolled to the cage to the booming sounds of Thi’sl’s “I Ain’t Turning Back” to cap a solid night of action. Thompson, meanwhile, went with Tenacious D’s “Wonderboy” in a move that has become commonplace for the South Carolinian ( online betting ). Other standout tracks included N.W.A.’s “Express Yourself” ( Rashad Evans ), G Unit’s “Poppin Them Thangs” ( Mark Hunt ), Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son” ( Luke Sanders ), The Choirboys’ “Run to Paradise” ( Daniel Kelly ), House of Pain’s “Jump Around” ( Cynthia Calvillo ), Kanye West’s “Runaway” ( Mark Godbeer ), Neiked’s “Sexual” ( Tyson Pedro ), Halsey’s “Gasoline” ( Amanda Bobby Cooper ) and Big Sean’s “Bounce Back” ( Albert Morales ).

UFC boss Dana White scored UFC 209 main event for Stephen Thompson over Tyron Woodley

“It’s easy to sit in your seats, drink some beers and (eat) some popcorn and boo people, man,” White said. “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. Woodley came out and made some big claims before the fight that we would have a definitive answer on who is the champion and things like that. I like Tyron. He’s talented. You’ve heard me say all the things he is. You can’t be upset at people now or whatever after that second fight.”

David Teymur Outworks Lando Vannata in Battle of Lightweight Upstarts (UFC 209 Results) | MMAWeekly.com

While Vannata was the one pushing forward, showing a lot of the flash that he is known for, like a cartwheel kick that landed, Teymur’s extensive Muay Thai background served him well. Though he had difficulty picking up on where Vannata was striking from on several occasions, he didn’t get rattled and countered well, particularly with his kicks to the body.

Overeem Interested in Bouts vs. Ngannou, Lewis if Title Opportunity Doesn’t Arise

Alistair Overeem showed no signs of a post-title fight hangover on Saturday night. One bout removed from a first-round knockout loss to Stipe Miocic in a heavyweight championship clash last September, Overeem was in top form at UFC 209 , as he methodically took apart Mark Hunt en route to a third-round knockout victory. “The Reem” battered his opponent with knees and elbows in close quarters throughout the fight before landing a pair of knees in the third frame that sent an unconscious Hunt face first to the canvas at the 1:44 mark. “I am very proud, but I am also very proud of my team. This is a great group of guys surrounding me and we might be old, but we’re not done yet,” said Overeem, who revealed that he struggled with food poisoning ahead of the bout. “We see a lot of things [when we watch film], we studied my opponent very extensively, all my coaches do, and I think that combined with my ability, technical ability, athletic ability, I’m able to put these guys away.” Leading up to UFC 209, Hunt was very vocal about Overeem's previous failed drug test and repeatedly accused his opponent of being a cheater.

UFC President Dana White Discusses What’s Next For Khabib Nurmagomedov

Last night’s UFC 209 was set to feature an epic co-main event. Tony Ferguson and undefeated No. 1 contender Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov were set to fight it out for the interim lightweight title. The bout very easily could have been a main event on its own. Well, for fight fans, something disastrous struck just shy of the event. “The Eagle” never landed his fight weight.

BJJ lesson: Surprise your opponent with this armbar from the north-south position by @gallerr

The armbar is a versatile move that can arise from several positions. Paul Schreiner teaches here one of the many ways you can surprise someone with it. After gaining side control, he makes the transition to the north-south. But note that he immediately lassoes Bernardo Faria's arm, aiming at applying the armbar.

Matches to Make After UFC 209

Tyron Woodley mitigated the risks, weighed the rewards and beat Stephen Thompson at his own game; and while not aesthetically pleasing, his approach brought about the desired result. The two-time NCAA All-American wrestler picked his spots and rode a near-finish in the fifth round to a majority decision over Thompson, as he retained the Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight crown in the UFC 209 main event on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Scores were 48-47, 48-47 and 47-47, giving Woodley the last laugh on “Wonderboy” after they fought to a draw in November. FightMetric figures reveal the close nature of the rematch: Woodley connected on 54 significant strikes across five rounds, while Thompson landed 53. However, the champion was behind the wheel for the two most meaningful sequences of the fight. Woodley executed a takedown in the second round and consolidated it with top control in ground-and-pound. Then in the fifth, he knocked down and dazed Thompson with an overhand right before swarming with enough punches to get referee John McCarthy’s attention.

UFC 209: By the Numbers

It wasn’t pretty or particularly memorable, but Tyron Woodley got some closure on his rivalry with Stephen Thompson . After battling to a majority draw in their first meeting at UFC 205, “The Chosen One” defended his welterweight crown with a majority decision triumph over Thompson in the UFC 209 headliner in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Offense came at a premium over the course of 25 relatively uneventful minutes, but it was Woodley who authored the bout’s most significant moments, including a furious blitz in the final minute of round five to seal his victory. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC 209, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com ( online betting ). 54: Significant strikes landed by Woodley, one more than Thompson did in the five-round bout. Woodley outlanded his foe 15 to 14 in round three and 17 to 13 in round five, while “Wonderboy” held advantages in round one (6 to 5) and four (12 to 9). Both fighters landed eight significant strikes apiece in round two. 1: Takedown landed in two attempts by Woodley.

As a result of all this drama, David Teymur and Lando Vannata were elevated to co-main event status. Vannata’s offense was as flashy and effective as ever, but Teymur’s constant level changing kept Vannata guessing where he was going to strike next. The fact that Teymur kept Vannata at a safe distance away for so long made it so “Groovy” could not land his unique offense as often as he wanted.
