Experience a day in the life of UFC welterweight fighter Tyron "The Chosen One" Woodley.
Experience a day in the life of training camp for UFC welterweight Tyron "The Chosen One" Woodley. Woodley's morning starts with a visit to his St. Louis neighborhood barbershop, Premier Palace, the place where Woodley has been getting his hair cut since he was 10 years old. From there, Woodley drives across town to train at ATT Evolution, an MMA gym that he owns and operates. During this morning workout, Woodley completes a boxing workout of focus mitt training and shadow boxing. After the boxing workout, Woodley heads out to lunch at Mai Lee, a St. Louis-area Vietnamese restaurant owned and operated by his friend, Qui Tran. Woodley talks about his UFC training camp meal plan while dining on a variety of Vietnamese dishes. After lunch, Woodley and his wife drive across town to pick up his oldest son from school. Afterward, the Chosen One returns to the ATT Evolution gym for an evening MMA sparring session. Woodley says, "Some days I don't feel like training. Some days I don't want to fight. Some days I don't want to run, I don't want to get up. I think that's part of being human, but I've got to mentally, spiritually and physically be in tune."Join along for the ride with Woodley and check out his day in the life video.
