03:59 PM ET 02.01 | Former top Strikeforce welterweight Tyron Woodley makes his UFC debut Saturday at UFC 156 against MMA veteran Jay Hieron. Woodley, however, is also on the comeback as he has brutally knocked out in his last fight against Nathan Marquardt in Strikeforce. The former Mizzou wrestling alum believes he's going to right the ship this weekend. "When I stuck to the game plan, pressed forward and did what I do best, I had great success," Woodley said. "But when I backed up and relaxed a little bit, that???s when he got off. So I have to stick to the game plan, stick to my guns and do what I do best, and if I do that against any welterweight, I will be fine."
