Video: Tyron Woodley’s sentimental backstage encounter with Darren Till after UFC 228

Tyron Woodley and Darren Till displayed true sportsmanship and were respectful toward each other in the octagon after the UFC 228 main event, and that continued when the aftermath spilled backstage.

Woodley (19-3-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) ended Till’s (17-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) undefeated run on Saturday when he scored a second-round submission victory in the UFC 228 headliner, which took place at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The victory marked a fourth consecutive title defense for “The Chosen One.”

The champion came into the fight nearly 11 years the elder of the challenger, and Woodley said he was going to prove a point. He did just that, but showed great humility in victory. Woodley approached Till post-fight and offered some words of wisdom to the Brit.
