We talked to the 39-year-old UFC legend at Amalie Arena in Tampa after he was KOd by Paul in the 6th round of their rematch fight … and asked if he’d hang up his gloves after losing to Jake for the second time, but T-Wood’s adamant he’ll be back.
“I didn’t look like a fighter that was slow. I didn’t look like a fighter that didn’t have fight in him. I gotta make that choice. I already planned to stay super busy in 2022, and that doesn’t change.”
We also asked Tyron how he was feeling after the fight.
“I’m good. I’m healthy. Bummed obviously, I didn’t wanna lose. I felt like I was winning the fight,” Woodley said.
As for his performance in the ring … Woodley believes he was winning the fight up until he dropped his hands right before the knockout, and it’s eating him up.
“One f***ing hand drop. And I’m looking at it, why did I drop my hands? That’s driving me crazy.”
Woodley — who looked sharp, especially early on — was clearly more aggressive this time around … moving forward for much of the fight.
And, Tyron says you might not just see him in a boxing ring, ’cause he wants to take several different kinds of fights in 2022.
“I just wanna do four different forms of combat sports. One being boxing, at least one time. One MMA, for sure. And just finish out like a winner.”
So, bottom line for Tyron Woodley … he believes he has a lot of fight left.
