The highly toted, undefeated prospect Tyron Woodley (9-0) continues his climb to the top with a win over the heavy-handed Brit, Paul ‘Symtex’ Daley (27-11-2) in Hoffman Estates, Illinois via unanimous decision. The NCAA wrestler Woodley used a similar tactic that fellow wrestler Josh Koscheck used in his fight against Daley to grind out a decision with superior grappling.

Official unanimous decision: (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

With Nick Diaz vacating the welterweight belt, Tyron Woodley will now eye a possible fight for the vacant belt.
