Shocking first pro loss
FeatherweightUFC
June 27, 2020
Woodson lost to Julian Erosa via submission (D'Arce Choke) at 2:44 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
What a disaster. Entering as a whopping -500 favorite, Woodson suffered his first career loss against an opponent who entered having lost all three of his UFC bouts up to this point. Woodson -- a former boxer -- was fine on the feet, but he let Erosa hang around and ultimately paid for it. Woodson also appeared to tire as the bout went along. Woodson turned 28 years of age last month but has just eight professional MMA fights under his belt. His grappling is going to have to improve significantly in order for him to be considered any sort of legitimate threat at 145 pounds. On the plus side, his size is highly intriguing. It's extremely rare to see a featherweight who stands 6-foot-2. Now it's up to Woodson to work on the other areas of his game.

Scheduled for May 16 card
FeatherweightUFC
April 29, 2020
Woodson (7-0-0) will fight Jared Gordon (15-4-0) on the May 16 card in Jacksonville, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Woodson wasn't originally planned to face Gordon, as it was originally announced that Gordon would square off against Matt Sayles. Obviously, the change in location due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 has changed things around, resulting in an opponent change. Woodson collected a victory in his first fight following his entrance into the UFC via the Contender Series, and he will aim to use his 6-foot-2 height to his advantage to keep his professional record unblemished.
Impressive win in UFC debut
FeatherweightUFC
October 18, 2019
Woodson defeated Kyle Bochniak via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Boston.
ANALYSIS
A product of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series, Woodson had zero issues with Bochniak in his official company debut. In addition to stuffing 14-of-15 takedown attempts from his opponent, Woodson landed nearly three times (150-52) as many total strikes as Bochniak. This was a blowout from the start and only got worse as the fight progressed. A win over Bochniak means little in the grand scheme of things, but Woodson, who is massive for the featherweight division at 6-foot-2, is going to give a whole bunch of 145-pounders problems with his size and length.
