    I'm pretty excited for this upcoming title fight between him and Woodley. I've only watched his fight with cerrone and wonderboy so far, and I think he is a pretty skilled striker.

    Can't make weight so honestly I don't know how to feel about him. He's a good striker, I feel he gets handled by Woodley though.

    No he's fake, he's pretending to be smaller than he is, by being a Welterweight but he's a Light heavyweight

    He probably goes in there and beats Woodley easily, but he doesn't belong at that weight division. Maybe a 175 lb division.

    No, can’t make weight and yet brags about how big he is, why brag about fighting smaller guys, I don’t get that.

    Also he got taken down by wonderboy...woodley is an actual wrestler

    I'm not sold on him being able to make welterweight without serious medical complications at this point.

    I was impressed with him until the Wonderboy fight...

    I think he still needs time to mature and grow... this title shot may have come a bit early in his career for him.

    Never sold on a striker beating a high level wrestler unless they have a long history of doing so.

    Based on his last interview where he clearly states that he doesnt care that he hasnt seen his daughter in over a year, or that his girlfriend si 7 months pregnant, and he doesnt care, I dont have anything for him any more

    I cant think of a scummier thing in the world than to not be around for your kids, or more importantly, NOT CARE that youre not around for your kids

    he'll beat woodley if woodley keeps fighting he has been - very inactive and against the cage. if tyron is able to secure rounds with well timed takedowns then he can win easily too. tyron hasnt gone for many takedowns tho in his ufc career - hes 5/8

    I like watching him fight.

    Guy has a good style that I appreciate, Thompson fight aside.

    Won't beat Woodley though. This is MMA, being a power striker isn't all you need. He hasn't proven that he can grapple with the best yet.

    That's why I wanted to see him fight Usman or Colby first.

    I'm sold on him but only because of his size. It's like he has a cheat code to be 2 weight classes bigger than his opponent.

    Once he he can't make the weight, I don't think he'll be anything special at Middleweight or LHW.

    Really don't get the hype behind him. He "beat" Wonderboy by staring at him for 25 minutes but Tyron is a world-class staring champion so this could be hard. And unwatchable

    When is the last time Woodley took anybody down? Woodley gets beaten badly in this one.

    No. I'm never completely sold on a fighter until they've: (1) had their grappling tested by a high level wrestler; and (2) had their cardio tested. In his two high-profile wins, Till fought two strikers. And neither fight tested his cardio.

    I hope Till turns out to be the real deal. I like his persona, and WW has been very weak in recent years and desperately needs high-end talent. But the reality is that Till has only fought one good WW (Wonderboy), and most people thought he lost that fight.

    I think he’s brilliant, big, effective range striker with loads of power. He’s special

    I also don’t think he’s a WW and shouldn’t be given fights at 170

    I also don’t think he beat Wonderboy but that fight was mostly feinting

    I always feel I have to say this but I like Till (although he dropped points with recent 1on1 interview just seen 2day) Till over his head in this one he depends on being the the bigger guy that's why he cutz weight that tight or over. Woodley is built for fighting @WW compact, tight, explosive and IQ'd...
