UFC 167 results recap: Tyron Woodley vs. Josh Koscheck

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Woodley got back on track with a first round KO over Koscheck. Check out what it means for him and the former contender.

Former contender Josh Koscheck (17-7) gave up a big KO to Tyron Woodley (11-2) in the second fight of the UFC 167 main card. Woodley improved to 2-1 in the Octagon with both wins coming via first round knockout. Koscheck is now on a three-fight losing streak. Both of his two most recent losses have seen him violently KO'd by his opponent.

Woodley got started quickly with a right hand that shook Koscheck. Kos was able to clinch up and recover then landed a big shot of his own after they were separated. Woodley came back with another big punch that almost put Josh down. The pace slowed down for a while as Kos tried to wrestle. Back on the feet, Woodley rocked Koscheck with another big right then finished him off with a follow-up blow at 4:38 of round 1.

What was the high point of the fight?

There was a lot of action in this one, but of course the highlight has to go to the finishing sequence.

Where do they go from here?

This was a very big win for Woodley he was coming off a very bad performance against Jake Shields in June. This KO over a known commodity and long-time top fighter put him back on the map at 170 lbs. I'd like to see him against the winner of Jake Ellenberger and Tarec Saffeidine.

Following the event, Dana White said Kos contacted him with implications of retirement. It's obvious he's lost a big step in the last couple years and cannot compete at the same level. If he does decide to stay around, he'll need a drop in competition if the UFC wants him to win.

Watch it now, later, or never?

It's a one round fight with a spectacular finish, go watch it.
