Woodson is now 9-1 in his MMA career and on a two-fight win streak. This was his fourth fight in the UFC and is 3-1. Finishing the year with an impressive win like this will only help his stock for next year. Anglin, on the other hand, is not 8-3 in his career and has lost the last two- fights. He would want to bounce back quickly from the loss and get back to winning ways. He was on a seven-fight win streak before the back-to-back losses.
