‘The Chosen One’ was on a career-high until 2018, and his last win came in when he battled the Brit Darren Till for his welterweight title defense.

This fight was in contention for a long time because Till kept on winning and he added some noteworthy wins to his bag. That said, there was no second thought, and he was offered to fight the scary Woodley. The latter already had some notable title defense wins, but this time, there were millions of fans and experts who thought Woodley might get finished by Till.

The Brit had the advantage of his height and reach, coupled with some substantial ground game.

But when the duo placed themselves inside the UFC octagon, it was all about Woodley showing up his polished version. He couldn’t knock ‘The Gorilla’ out, but held major control of the fight. As a result, Woodley finally ended this fight with a vicious submission and won the Performance of the Night bonus as well.

Prior to this fight, Woodley was only considered a stern knockout artist. But in his fight against Till, ‘The Chosen One’ showed immense abilities in his grappling and overall ground and pound.

This fight was a one-sided hammering and ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ smothered Woodley by every means. With this loss, Woodley also lost his hard-earned welterweight strap.

Post this fight, he lost his momentum and went on a losing streak. Along with that, his reign in the UFC concluded and, for now, he hasn’t inked a deal with any MMA promotion.
