It wasn’t that extended back that Woodley was the UFC welterweight winner, defeating the likes of Stephen Thompson, Darren Till, Demian Maia, Robbie Lawler, and Kelvin Gastelum, among some others. But considering that 2019, Woodley just has not seemed like the very same fighter he after was as he’s failed to pull the bring about and permit his fingers go in his final few of fights. He was also outwrestled, but that could be the essential to him winning the struggle versus Luque. If the battle stays standing, Luque will be at his most dangerous.
