Tyron’s first-ever professional fight would be on February 7, 2009, where he faced off against Steve Schnider which he won in the very first round via submission. That same year he would make his debut for Strikeforce. Soon, he would sign a contract with them for six fights. With good performances and several submissions, he would extend his contract even further. However, he was unable to win the Strikeforce Welterweight Championship in 2012.

In 2013, Tyron would start a new chapter in his career by signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He made his debut against Jay Hieron and would beat him via knockout within 36 seconds. The very next year Tyron got a new contract for 8 fights with the UFC.

His big moment would come in 2016 when he faced Robbie Lawler and won via knockout to claim the UFC Welterweight Championship with excellent performance. He then had two great matches with Stephen Thompson in defense of the title with him winning both of them in very tight matches. He successfully defended the title against Demian Maia and Darren Till as well.

Yet, in 2019, Tyron would face Kamaru Usman in a match which Usman dominated completely and he would lose via unanimous decision. The loss led to Tyron losing his title which he was able to retain for 3 years. He lost three fights consecutively after this with Dana White forcing him to retire.

Tyron is now set to face Youtuber Jake Paul in a boxing match which would be the first that Tyron is ever involved in his career. Other than fighting, Tyron has also been involved in roles in different films such as Straight Outta Compton, Kickboxer, Escape Plan: 2, and the Indian film Sultan.
