Tyron Woodley Presents – Champ Life UFC 214, Episode 2

Champ Life

UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley is back, with Episode 2 of Champ Life UFC 214

Tyron Woodley produces perhaps the best videos of any fighter in MMA. He understands what the fans want to see, and his production values are top notch. Whoever works on these with him are doing an incredible job.  Here he presents Ep. 2 of the UFC 214 Edition of the Champ Life series.

The episode opens with Tyron in the locker room post-UFC 214, getting his shoulder treated. It came out after the fight, that he injured his shoulder during the first round of his fight with Demian Maia.  He was still able to stuff all 21 of Maia’s takedown effects, and cruise to a unanimous shutout decision victory.

The video then takes a week prior to the fight and opens in New York City were Tyron is making an appearance on Sirius Radio on Sway’s Universe show. He’s nervous because he’s going to rap on the show, and as he says, he’s not a rapper. He actually does a good job, and Din Thomas is on hand to give him props as well.

We see him get a midnight workout in, before flying to Los Angeles. Tyron goes through the press conference, and all the media he has to do before the fight. Finally it’s fight day. The remainder of the video takes place during fight day, and wraps him post-fight at the press conference.  Check it out.
