Tyron Woodley's stunning loss to Kamaru Usman, right, at UFC 235 was also notable for what happened afterwards. On Wednesday, UFC released a clip of Tyron's mother Deborah Woodley comforting her son on his way to the locker room at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
"Good fight dude. Good fight," she told her son. "It was a good fight, man. It was a good fight. Just be encouraged. Go back to the drawing board."
After celebrating his victory with his daughter, Samira, in the ring, an emotional Usman heard a familiar voice congratulation him as he limped to the locker room with his new welterweight title belt slung over his shoulder.
Usman respectfully apologized to Deborah Woodley for defeating her son. "It's OK," she said graciously. "It's all good, baby. It's all good. It's all good. It's all good, honey. Bless your heart. It's all good."
Usman was moved to tears as she said, "It's your turn. It ain't his turn. It's your time. Be encouraged. You hear me? And keep on working, because they're gon' come for you. And you take it to 'em."
The clip moved many to tears on social media. UFC fans praised Mrs. Woodley for her gracious and kind spirit.
Director and writer Brad James wrote, "Ain't nothing like a black mama."
