Tyron Woodley will return to the UFC for the primary time since shedding the Welterweight Title to Kamaru Usman. Right here he faces Gilbert Burns who’s coming off a formidable KO win over Demain Maia. Nonetheless, ‘The Chosen One’ revealed that he upped the ante for the conflict together with his fellow Welterweight and shared his gameplan.
Tyron Woodley says he wished a 5-round battle
First, the top-ranked Welterweight fighter expressed his confidence forward of Saturday night time’s occasion.
In a chat with MMA Junkie, he mentioned, “This battle specifically with Gilbert Burns is, I’m assured due to who I’m and what I’m doing and I’m conscious of what he does, I’m conscious of how he’s. He’s received a pleasant little left hook, uppercut, received some knees and flying knees, kicks and punches and calf kicks.”
Moreover, he mentioned ‘Durinho’s lack of shock holds him in good stead as he’s ready.
“I haven’t actually seen a lot completely different from him. I’ve seen his fashion, and I’ve form of gotten it damaged down, however the aspect of shock is a motherf***er.”
Now, ‘The Chosen One’ reveals to followers the precise purpose he selected the 5 spherical battle as a substitute of a three rounder.
“Once you begin doing stuff they don’t count on you to do, that’s what I believe he received’t be ready for. He received’t be ready to get exhausted and drained, and I wished this. I had the choice to battle this battle in a three-round battle. And I wished a five-round battle. As a result of he ain’t by no means fought 5 rounds earlier than, not within the UFC, to not my information.”
‘Durinho’ has by no means competed for over 15 minutes in his MMA profession. His longest fights have been seven three rounders. He has a 5-2 report right here beating Andreas Stahl, Alex Oliviera, Olivier Aubin Mercier, Alexey Kunchenko, and Gunnar Nelson. The latter two are a part of his ongoing three battle win streak at Welterweight.
“So three rounds, beginning off robust or loafing, to start with, to complete robust is just not going to work, is just not going to work in a five-round battle. That’s what my objective is Simply take him in that deep water and simply attempting to drown him.”
Do you assume 5 rounds will show to powerful for Gilbert Burns and lead him to “drown?”
