    Carlos Condit didn’t earn the nickname “The Natural Born Killer” by playing it safe during his fights.

    The former WEC welterweight champion and UFC interim titleholder goes for the finish when he sees the opportunity, to which his 28 finishes among his 30 career wins attest. He’s also an eight-time bonus winner with six Fight of the Nights to his credit, and his UFC 195 bout with Robbie Lawler was MMA Fighting’s 2016 Fight of the Year.

    So when Condit hears the criticisms directed at current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, whom many consider a play-it-safe fighter, he understands why.

    “I can definitely see where the critics are coming from,” Condit said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “We’re athletes but we’re also entertainers, people buy the pay-per-view to be entertained. That’s part of this. This is show business. I know that winning is super important and a gameplan is super important, but at some point you have to, this is the hurt business and you gotta to try to put your opponent out.”

    . . .

    “You know he’s obviously a super, super talented dude,” Condit said. “I did watch the last fight against Maia. . . . At a time where he could he really could have turned it on and tried to finish, he didn’t.”

    I'm a fan of Woodley. His fights are 50 / 50 for me. Sometimes he's exciting (I.E his back and forth with Thompson & Marquardt (even though he lost)), other times he's a stalemate.

    But I do tune in to watch his fights, and I like his approach outside of fighting. He's good on Fox Sports as an analyst.

    Woodley deserves zero critique.

    He did what he was supposed to and won the fight. You don't go in on an elite level backpack.

    Hypocrite. Where was this attitude when he was running away from Nick Diaz and throwing little baby leg kicks?

    Only thing exciting is his ko power and that's either genetics or... something else.... Anyways he doesn't fight to win he fights not to lose, every time he goes the distance people are bored to tears.

    I bet he can understand where the critics are coming from look at what happened to his career when he changed from a finishing machine to circling around and waiting for the bell to ring in what could've been likely one of the best fights ever

    Does that sentence make any sense in your head ?

    Boring isnt indicative of skill level, just because someone is boring doesnt mean someone can “do something about it”.....

    Its like saying

    All NBA players that think GSW is winning again this year being boring should do something about it...

    Condit has had one fight where people thought it was boring. Woodley has had a bunch. The facts are the facts, so go ahead Woodley fans. Feel the

    I read the quote, but running from Diaz was neither "entertaining" nor "trying to put your opponent out"

    That fight was still more exciting than any fight Woodley has been in. It's called strategy, standing right infront of Nick would be stupid. He still landed more strikes in that fight than Woodley has in his entire career.
