The fourth bout of the UFC 171 Pay-Per-View broadcast began with excitement but ended a bit anticlimactically, as Tyron Woodley defeated Carlos Condit by TKO (injury) in the second round of their welterweight battle.
Condit, the former UFC Interim Welterweight Champion and former WEC Welterweight Champion, entered the Octagon a (-125) favorite. But the New Mexico native, who falls to 29-8 overall and 6-4 in the UFC, seemed to have his leg give out on him as Woodley shot in for a takedown early in the second round. Later, as the two scrambled to their feet, Woodley landed a round kick to Condit’s left leg, but Condit crumbled to the mat clutching his right leg. The referee called a halt to the action immediately, and Condit could not continue the match.
The fight began with spirited exchanges between the two, as Woodley landed his vaunted right hand and several takedowns, while Condit countered with a varied Muay Thai attack and a swift triangle attempt. Sadly the bout failed to develop as hoped.
The (+145) underdog Tyron Woodley rises to 13-3 and 3-1 in the UFC. A Missouri native fighting out of American Top Team in Florida, Woodley called for a title shot in his post fight interview.
Tyron Woodley defeats Carlos Condit by TKO (injury) at 2:00 of round two.
