Official Result: Tyron Woodley defeats Josh Koscheck by knockout in Round 1 (4:38)
Analysis: Woodley has serious power. The Jay Hieron knockout was no fluke. Anyone who can throw like that and wrestle like Woodley is real. He probably should have won the decision over Jake Shields in his last fight, but he's back on track now and not far from a title shot. And Koscheck? Well, it might be time to hang things up. Two scary knockouts in a row is never good.
