Shows improved takedown defense

Woodson defeated Youssef Zalal via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Vegas 28 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Woodson won this fight largely on the basis of his takedown defense, as Zalal was only able to get him to the mat twice despite 17 total attempts. He used his large frame to keep a wide base and ultimately limit Zalal's success in that area. While he was ultimately credited with 40 significant strikes to Zalal's 42, Woodson accumulated 104 total strikes to Zalal's 55. That activity, mixed with two submission attempts, was enough to earn the favor of the judges despite losing the control time battle by more than five minutes. Still, fantasy players who rostered the (-190) betting favorite were likely hoping for a bit more offensive output.

ANALYSIS
Woodson lost his first professional fight back in June via submission (D'Arce Choke) to Julian Erosa in Round 3.

Shocking first pro loss

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.
