Thompson issued a statement to FOX Sports where he congratulated Woodley on the win. At the same time he assured that their two paths would cross in the future, which sounds like another rematch challenge.
“Last night was not the outcome I wanted. I wanted that title more than anything, but it didn’t go my way. Tyron is a great fighter, a deserving champion, and a worthy opponent. We’ll fight again, I know it.”
He told reporters at UFC 209’s post-fight news conference:
“I had it three (rounds) to two the other way. I thought that ‘Wonderboy’ won three to two. One of the judges scored the last round 10-8, so that obviously throws (the scoring).”
Later Dana White weighed in on Tyron Woodley’s title defense vs. Stephen Thompson in UFC 209 rematch reactions to the fight stating:
UFC President Dana White said:
“It’s easy to sit in your seats, drink some beers and (eat) some popcorn and boo people, man. They’re not in there fighting Tyron Woodley or ‘Wonderboy.’ A lot was at stake, and these guys fought the way they needed to fight to win.
Woodley came out and made some big claims before the fight that we would have a definitive answer on who is the champion and things like that. I like Tyron. He’s talented. You’ve heard me say all the things he is. You can’t be upset at people now or whatever after that second fight.”
