For the first time in a long time, Rory MacDonald (pictured) entered a fight as the underdog (albeit a slight one) when the welterweight met Tyron Woodley at UFC 174.
Yeah, about that…
MacDonald put on arguably the best performance of his career in cruising past Woodley for a landslide (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) unanimous decision win.
UFC president Dana White essentially said Woodley choked in the biggest fight of his life after laying an egg inside the octagon.
MacDonald, meanwhile, is looking to compete for a title in his next outing. Chances are he’ll have to prove his mettle at least one more time.
UFC 174 took place inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada.
