FORMER UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley is quite adept at punching people in the face with four-ounce UFC gloves on his fists.

This skill, combined with high-level wrestling, helped him win UFC gold in 2016 and then defend the title four times. It also produced knockouts of Robbie Lawler and Josh Koscheck, two good strikers dangerous on their feet.

Yet, despite this proficiency, Woodley has never defeated a professional boxer, active or otherwise, nor appeared in a boxing ring himself.
