Regarding the Lawler-Woodley main event ending so quickly and violently, White offered the following take to Olivi.
“That’s exactly how everyone thought it would go. If Tyron Woodley could catch him in the first round with his fast, explosive punches he would probably catch Robbie and knock him out. But if Robbie took him in the second and third round, Woodley tends to gas and Robbie would dominate. That’s exactly how I saw it going, and that’s the way it went.”
