Sean Woodson

The Sniper


Works body in easy victory
November 13, 2021
Woodson defeated Collin Anglin via TKO (punches) at 4:30 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Woodson hadn't shown much in his UFC run to date, but that didn't stop the Vegas odds makers from having him as a -400 favorite here. As always, Vegas knows all. Nicknamed "The Sniper", Woodson torched Anglin with repeated, vicious body shots. He doubled and tripled up to the same spot before one left hook to the liver finished Anglin off. It was a good stoppage by referee Herb Dean and a brilliant job by Woodson of recognizing an opening and taking advantage of it. The next challenge for the 29-year-old St. Louis native will be to follow up this strong effort with another his next time out.

More Fantasy News
Facing Anglin in November
September 1, 2021
Woodson will take on Collin Anglin in a featherweight bout at the UFC event Nov. 13, reports.
Woodson is coming off a split decision win over Youssef Zalal back in June that pushed his career record to 8-1. Anglin on the other hand is hoping to bounce back after being knocked out by Melsik Baghdasaryan back in late July.
Needs clearance on injuries
June 9, 2021
Woodson is facing a six-month medical suspension, reports.
Woodson will need an x-ray on his left hand and an MRI on his left knee or will not be able to fight until December. Woodson was able to take down Youssef Zalal via split decision last Saturday. That pushed his career MMA record to 8-1.
Shows improved takedown defense
June 6, 2021
Woodson defeated Youssef Zalal via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Vegas 28 on Saturday.
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.
Set to fight again in June
March 12, 2021
Woodson is scheduled to face Youssef Zalal at a UFC Fight Night on June 5, Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie reports. The venue and the location have yet to be determined.
Woodson lost his first professional fight back in June via submission (D'Arce Choke) to Julian Erosa in Round 3. He had strung together seven consecutive victories prior to his defeat and will look to get back on track against a hungry fighter in Zalal, who has dropped consecutive bouts after starting out 3-0 in the UFC.
Withdraws from upcoming fight
November 21, 2020
Woodson withdrew from his upcoming fight against Jonathan Pearce for undisclosed reasons Saturday, reports.
The matchup had been scheduled to take place on Nov. 28. It's unclear when Woodson will next step into the Octagon. Pearce will remain on the card, with Kai Kamaka taking Woodson's place.
