Best Local MMA Fighter 

Tyron Woodley

St. Louis' mixed martial arts scene has exploded in recent years, and no local tough guy is tougher than Tyron Woodley. The Ferguson native was a standout wrestler at McCluer High School before moving on to Mizzou, where he was an ROTC student, a conference champion and a two-time All-American on the mats. He learned jujitsu from Mike Rogers at St. Charles Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Mixed Martial Arts, trained with Matt Hughes' H.I.T. Squad and now aligns himself with the vaunted American Top Team. An ass-kicking machine, he fights in Strikeforce, the Showtime-sponsored league that's just a notch below UFC, and boasts a 6-0 record with all but one win coming by submission.
