Woodley's victory was the fastest in UFC welterweight title history.Although Lawler let his guard down at an inopportune time, Woodley said he did not see a particular weakness that he could exploit so early in the bout.Lawler, who made his UFC debut in 2002 but stayed away from the sport for several years before returning in 2013, was philosophical about losing the championship.
