Certainly, his UFC peers seemed willing to applaud his performance, with numerous fighters taking to social media to congratulate the defending champion.

Super stoked for @TWooodley it must feel like a slap in the face to come into a title fight as the champion, and be considered the underdog, especially after many successful defenses. But that victory must feel good to shove the bullshit right down the haters throats
