Tyron Lakent Woodley (born April 7, 1982)[4] is an American professional mixed martial artist and broadcast analyst.

Early life

Woodley was born and raised in Ferguson, Missouri. The eleventh of thirteen children, he was raised by his mother after his father left the family early in his life. In high school, he was a two-sport athlete, competing in American football and amateur wrestling.[7][8] Woodley won the Missouri 4A Men’s State Championship in 2000 in the 160lb weight class.

After graduating from McCluer High School in 2000, Woodley attended University of Missouri and joined their wrestling program. There, he became a two-time All-American; once in 2003 and again in 2005.[9] Woodley graduated from the university in 2005 with a major in Agricultural Economics.[10]

Woodley was scheduled to face Leon Edwards on March 21, 2020, at UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs. Edwards.[71] However, the restrictions related to COVID-19 forced Edwards to withdraw as the event was meant to be moved from London to the United States, and the event was subsequently postponed indefinitely.[72]

Paul vs. Woodley

Before the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren main event took place, Woodley was involved in a backstage situation with Jake Paul and J'Leon Love, where he was mocked due to his inexperience in boxing and the result of Paul's bout against Woodley's long–time teammate Ben Askren was discussed.[88] After Paul knocked out Askren, Woodley called out Paul.[89] On May 31, 2021, news surfaced that Woodley has now been scheduled to make his professional boxing debut against internet personality Jake Paul on August 28, 2021.[90][91]
