The thing is WW has now about 40 game fighters on multiple levels, people on streaks slowly working themselves up, the top ten is no indicator as Magny shouldnt be there even though he is solid. In GSP day the WW Roster was smaller and outside of the top 10 it was wasteland also look at the top 5 of yesterday Fitch, Shields, Alves and Koscheck one dimensinal fighters, great fighters but had a strong suit and went far with it, in todays game you have to be atleast solid everywhere.
You do realize how irrelevant a fighters personal opinion and his camps opinion of his skill prior to the fight is right??
Is pretty dumb that you actually think that they are giving their honest, *unbias* views.
Woodley is worst than GSP in every single area of mma
Right now, up to the minute, you really can't put him ahead of Gsp just yet.T- wood puts in a few more title defenses then we can talk plus t-wood isn't getting any " softballs" thrown at him.Every fighter he faces is a beasty so that's definitely to his favor.
Stop referencing Rory fight. These fighters (INCLUDING champions) all have losses on their ledger.
Even though Rory just beat Lima, he took a beating and lost a pair to Lawler as the betting favorite so right now if the 2 fought - I'd favor T.Wood slightly over Rory.
Fighters fight other fighters at different times and why people offer up opinion based on these references is beyond me
They are worth more than your opinion, that's for sure.
Danaher was actually on Rogan's podcast after the fight, not before.
TS, no, plain and simple.
Even though his lack of ground game has led to him taking serious damage and losing fights? Interesting.....
GSP would dominantly UD him, Rory would beat him again, the Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit of yesteryear would all take him, Condit was winning until the injury iirc. Prime Benson would have been a toss up, and I'll even go as far as to say Nick Diaz would take him in a 5 round fight.
And was referencing the technique, and not the athletism.
My initial point was in reference to his athletism/explosiveness.
I have no idea why you think an individual's skill regresses the older they get. It doesn't, it's their means of executing that skill that diminishes.
I like Woodley and would favor him in a fight against GSP. I think he'd lose a rematch against Rory.
No doubt in my mind that Woodley can go down as an all-time great, but the most concerning habit he has, for me, is his tendency to put his back to the cage and shell up when taking hits.
I have no idea how you made that conclusion since I never said that.
But I agree with what you just said.
Tyrone got bested by a nfl running back in the 50 yard dash and dude even slipped at the start. How can he be the best WW?
GSP wins 9/10 if they fought last week, let alone in GSP's prime. Rewatch the Rory fight to see how TW handles (or rather doesn't handle) Rory's jab. GSP mounts another orbital on his mantle.
Beat RDA, Colby, Usman and Till than maybe he be considered the best.
I don't see how Woodley would be favored over a prime GSP. All GSP would have to do is block/evade around a dozen punches over 2 rounds & Woodley would be gassed by round 3.
you are right, i apologize, 2nd worst after Serra
Black Lives Matter hijacked a thread about fighting and wrote a mini essay on racism that absolutely no one read.
He is on his way but too early to anoint him as that now.
