Seeing as how Woodley hasn’t won a UFC fight in several years, I’m really not sure what to make of this situation.
Sure, he’s a better striker than Ben Askren ever was during his fighting days, but he’s way out of his prime.
When Woodley was rolling, he was a dominant UFC fighter and a champion for awhile. However, that was a very long time ago.
If Paul shows up in shape and ready to fight, then there’s a very real chance he’s about to be 2-0 against UFC guys.
That’s not going to make Dana White very happy!
