  • How UFC champ Tyron Woodley thinks racism has impacted his MMA career

    On numerous occasions in the past year, boxing promoter Bob Arum has insisted the UFC’s audience mirrors the demographic that supports Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump:  It’s “lily white,” the International Boxing Hall of Famer has said, with little appreciation of diverse cultures. Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who will defend the title against Stephen “Wonder Boy” Thompson on Nov. 12 in the co-main event of UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York, has first-hand experience that leads him to agree with Arum’s position. Part of the reason, Woodley speculated, is his race.
