    Default Tyron Woodley 'chokes in big fights,' UFC President Dana White says

    Following Tyron Woodley‘s loss to fellow contender Rory MacDonald this past weekend at UFC 174, UFC President Dana White offered a rather blunt assessment of his performance.

    Although the fight was expected to be one of the night’s most competitive – and though the betting public made it a virtual dead heat heading into Saturday’s pay-per-view co-headliner – Woodley was shut down for three rounds and suffered a unanimous-decision loss via 30-27 scores (watch the MacDonald vs. Woodley video highlights).

    “He choked in the big fight tonight, man,” White told FOX Sports 1 after the event, which took place at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena. “He needed to come out and try to rip that head off in the third round, and he didn’t even do that. He threw a few punches, missed and didn’t knock him out and just sort of set back into the way he fought in the rest of the fight.”

    Woodley (13-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC), a standout collegiate wrestler, didn’t scored a single takedown in the bout, and MacDonald (17-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC), who controlled the pace, out-landed him 97-38, according to FightMetric.
    “He got beat tonight,” White said. “He got beat mentally, he got beat physically, and Tyron’s got a ways to go.

    “It seems like he chokes in the big fights.”

    He's got that Kenny Florian syndrome. I get it.

    I think Dana says some idiotic shit.

    It's bad enough he's putting down Tyron for losing, but he's simultaneously detracting from Rory's winning performance.

    Here's my thought...

    I generally LIKE Dana White. I usually like his attitude and his bluntness.

    But he REALLY needs to cut this shit out.

    It's fucking ridiculous.

    Woodley lost the fight. But he went out there and fought. And I'm assuming he tried his best.
    Rory hit him with some good shots and completely shut him down. NOT the first time we've seen MacDonald do that to REALLY good fighters.
    Woodley didn't CHOKE. Woodley LOST.
    There's a difference.

    And DW is pretty fucking awfully disrespectful towards a guy who, just last week, he was singing the praises of.
    Just cause a guy loses, doesn't mean he "chokes in big fights".

    DAMN that's some DISRESPECTFUL, uncalled for SHIT.

    I bet Koscheck would beg to differ on that assessment of Woodley.

    Could you imagine if your boss talked like that to you and your coworkers?

    Sure doesn't. He's not boss of the year by any stretch, but he doesn't talk down to me like a piece of shit either.

    If he did I wouldn't have been here for as long as I have.

    I thought Canadians were supposed to be more polite?
