Tyron Woodley’s dramatic win over Darren Till at UFC 228 on Saturday night was made a little bit more special by the fact that he also got promoted to black belt in BJJ by UFC vet Din Thomas.
Woodley battered Till on the ground and submitted him with a D’Arce choke. After his submission win, Woodley was awarded his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt by Thomas, who is himself a BJJ black belt under former ATT head coach Ricardo Liborio.
Woodley went through all the BJJ belts through Liborio and Thomas.
He has also trained with Marcelo Garcia:
This was not the first BJJ promotion in the ring. Remember:
The legendary Ricardo Liborio approves:
What a great picture !
So well deserved 🙏🙌
