Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley made his most anticipated appearance on Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s ‘The Titan Games.’ However, the match-up didn’t go well for him as he was beaten by a school teacher.
After clearing the initial rounds, he faced a school teacher named Will Sutton, who hails from Trenton, North Carolina. Sutton is an agriculture teacher and JV basketball coach at Croatan High School.
The pair competed in the finals which is called ‘Mount Olympus’. Sutton was ahead of Woodley right from the beginning, overcoming obstacles and finally winning the thing.
Tyron Woodley has breathing heavily in the middle of the finale as the rural school teacher steamrolled him.

“I’m in great physical condition to fight. I can fight MMA fight right now. When I got to the top after the bag. I was toast.” He vowed to be back and said, “I’m coming back, it ain’t over with. It ain’t over with. Will Sutton, I’m coming back.” Woodley said following the loss.
On the other hand, Will Sutton was happy to win and put his hometown on the map.
“Probably one of the best athletic experiences I’ve ever had in my life, just to meet so many awesome people. Go out there and test myself, test my limits to the max and you know, and in the meantime, getting to meet the greatest actor in the world right now, Dwayne Rock Johnson.” Will said after the finale.

What’s next for Tyron Woodley?
Tyron Woodley is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Gilbert Burns in May. Although there were talks about him retiring after a one-sided beatdown from Burns, the former champion made it clear that he isn’t retiring.
Speaking on IG Live he stated that he would like to fight two more times in 2020.
“I want to fight two more times this year. So we are right now in June. I feel like if I can get one on the books sometime in the near future then it still leaves me with November or December to fight again. I want to fight two more times this year. I want to just really knock out some fights. I’m excited about it. I’m ready to get back in there and get after it.” Woodley said.
“I can’t think of anybody off the top of my head like, ‘Oh, let me fight this mother(expletive).’ If you lose a fight you don’t be coming out of the gate like, you ain’t really in a position to call anybody out. You kind of just got to take a seat, sit down, be humble, get back on the grind, get ready to beat somebody up. But you don’t really get to call the shots like that, at least I don’t think you should. Some people do. You know you who are.” Tyron Woodley concluded. (H/T – MMA Junkie)
