    1. Maia - Boring fight
    2. Thompson - Boring fight
    3. Thompson - Fight of the year candidate
    4. Lawler - Exciting KO
    5. Gaestalum - Ok fight
    6. DHK - Solid knock out
    7. MacDonald - Solid fight
    8. Condit - Solid fight plus a finish
    9. Koscheck - Great knock out
    10. Shields - Meh/Boring This fight did have it's moments
    11. Hieron - Exciting KO

    So as we can see out of 11 UFC fights Tyron has only 3 fights that could be considered boring. Of those 3 fights 2 weren't really his fault.

    Maia did not go for a finish despite being down 4 rounds to 0, plus Tyron hurt his shoulder.

    Woodley vs Wonderboy was both of their faults, both were far too cautious.

    Shields vs. Woodley had it's moments that were exciting but Shields is a one dimensional fighter who exclusively looked to tie Woodley up. I don't fault Shields for that personally because hey you gotta do what you gotta do to win.

    This narrative that Woodley is a boring safe fighter is silly. If in 2-4 more fights Woodley has more boring decisions and you want to say he's TURNED into a boring or safe fighter I'll agree with you. But at this point that is not a fair label to place on the man.

    It was a typical UFC fight, not great, not bad, nothing spectacular happened. Kelvin missed weight...again. It could have been better sure but I wouldn't say it was boring.

    Thompson Woodley 1 a FOTY candidate? It was a bloody draw and 90% of the fight had zero activity.

    Woodley is painfully boring. The highlight of his entire career is knocking out Lawler.

    People were calling it fight of you year candidate. Are you disagreeing with that? That fight was not too long ago.

    Which people? It was a snooze fest except for two bursts of activity, mostly the two fighters circling and stalking.

    There were probably a 100 better fights in the UFC in that time period.

    There have been what half a dozen draws in the last year?

    Woodley has some serious power. But when he can't get a quick finish most of his fights end up quite boring.

    Never could understand how you believe the earth is flat but know I understand. If you can believe Woodley is an exciting fighter, Thompson was foty candidate and Condit was a legitimate finish in an exciting fight you can believe anything. Can I ask what drugs you partake in?

    It's funny how Maia and Thompson both get a pass for fighting terrible fights. Much as I appreciate Maia he had zero business being in the cage with Woodley that night, and Thompson was a two-time great white hope who did jack shit other than survive 50 minutes.

    Woodley is obviously fighting not to lose right now. (But at least he's defending!) And it's a shame.

    But the way Conor and Bisping are allowed to duck contenders sends a message - don't lose your fucking belt because you may never get another crack at it.

    Both Wonderboy fights were boring and so was Gastelum. Also the Rory fight was jab, jab circle....very boring.
