Tyron Woodley had to go through several challenges in his life to get to the point where he is now. He is a former UFC welterweight champion who is set to make his professional boxing debut against Jake Paul on August 29, 2021. Ahead of his boxing debut, here, we take a look at the darkest moments of Tyron Woodley's life.
Woodley was born and brought up in Ferguson, Missouri. At the time when Woodley was a kid, the entire city was a dangerous neighborhood filled with gangsters.
Woodley's father left the family when he was young. It was only his mother, Deborah Woodley, who had to raise 13 children all by herself. As a result, 'Momma Woodley' had to work very hard.
As previously mentioned, Woodley, along with his 12 other siblings, grew up in a bad neighborhood. As a result, their mother, Deborah Woodley, had to be strict so they won't get involved in any illegal activities.
After losing his UFC welterweight title against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235, 'The Chosen One' lost his next three fights. His 4-fight losing streak is one of the worst moments of Woodley's professional MMA career.
