Chaos was dominant over Woodley from the start and landed several strikes which also injured Woodley's ribs.

The UFC President talked to the press after the fight and said that the Chosen One should now start thing about retirement.
"I think that he should start thinking about hanging it up. He's had a great career, he's had a great run, you know, he's made money."
Woodley has not yet received White's message as he is under treatment for ribs injury.
