    Budden show mercy, the guy won't even reveal his bets anymore cause he's scared you will roast him. Playing Font was not sharp though, the fact that Dellagrotte wasn't in his corner/camp and the fact that last time Font fought in Brazil he got whooped should have been enough to stop sharps betting him as a favourite vs Munhoz

    Watched Covington fight for the 2nd time last night.

    If he can't take Woodley down, he is in trouble. He will need to do some striking to setup takedowns or to get him into the clinch. The way Colby lunges into his punches at times, he is asking to get hit with a big Woodley counter.

    Kind of a reminder that it's hard to bet on guys who are near the end of their careers. Like Jim Miller for example too.

    i'm not sure. i think colby will revert to his original style when he fights woodley. i'll happily play him if he's a decent dog.

    colby claimed that he sparred woodley for two rounds and tryonne quit

    he didnt appear to be trolling, he actually thinks that he is a better striker than woodley

    If Woodley doesn't catch Covington early and put him away then Woodley is the one in trouble. The longer that fight goes the worse it gets for Woodley. Covington is tough and he's never been KO'd.

    Woodley is also far from the best Welterweight in the world. He's just had some good performances and style match ups lately but the guy is 35 years old and he has obvious flaws. Thompson was too scared to pressure Woodley, he played it safe and paid the price. Maia was easy work for Woodley because it was a great style match up.

    I think anyone that can get in Woodley's face, pressure him and outwork him can give him problems but you take a gamble in doing that cause you might get KO'd.

    I could name several welterweights, not just in the UFC that I would favour to beat Woodley.

    i think thompson is even a worse matchup

    covington would just get picked apart on the feet, especially in a five round fight

    colby doesnt have the punching power to trouble wonderboy

    I think people will continue to underestimate Colby because they dislike his personality.

    Against certain fighters with certain styles he matches up well, against others not so much.

    Imagine if Woodley fought Douglas Lima or Koreshkov, he'd get destroyed and those guys aren't even in the UFC. I'd also favour about half of the guys in the UFC top 10 to beat him.

    His personality is #elite but he was getting owned by Maia on the feet before Maia gassed. Woodley is likely gonna find a bomb to plant on his chin within the first 2 rounds with that kind of defense

    I don't disagree that Colby has the style to beat Woodley with his pace and conditioning over 5 rounds to win a decision and Woodley's lack of volume.

    Colby's striking leaves a lot to be desired, he slightly lunges when he strikes with his head forward and makes it harder to reset, that leaves him really vulnerable to Woodley's counter. Colby has never been Ko'd and is probably really tough but if Lawler is dropping, so is Colby.

    Not a big Woodley fan but he has a strong fight IQ and does what he needs to , to win fights.

    Sure, his stand up looked pretty poor but I think him being reckless was kind of part of the gameplan. He wanted to push the pace and didn't mind eating a few shots if it meant that Maia was going to gas quicker. Against Woodley I'm sure his gameplan would be different.

    Against Woodley I imagine his gameplan would be the same. Whats he gonna do, try to have a slow kickboxing contest against a more explosive guy with better accuracy and power and experience and who throws a lot more technical?

    I really thought Colby could've been a bad match up before this fight. Now idk how anyone can think, barring a granite chin, Colby doesn't die when we got a look at how bad his standup is with those wide swings and head always in one spot to be hit.
