    Huge WWs with a lot of hype, marketable look, questionable tats, an obvious push from the UFC, and lack of ground game that fought around 200 pounds on fight night.

    Neither did Till LOL.

    The UFC gave both fighters a home town feature attraction to try to push them to the title. Till squeaked by WB in Liverpool. I'm pretty sure the UFC was fast tracking Thatch to a title shot if he was able to beat Benson Henderson in Denver.

    Till did because Dana White thought he could sell us magic beans from Liverpool.
    Dana let him duck all the excellent wrestlers in the division, only to gift him a title-shot against the most excellent of all wrestlers in the division.

    Anyone with a brain knew Woodley was gonna dominate Till.

    Thatch wouldn't have gotten through Wonderboy, regardless of how you score that fight, it was close. Thatch would have been in Tweety land.

    The threat of the wrestling/takedown changes the complexion of the fight, greatly.
    Till didn't land a single strike because of that factor, not because Woodley is the next Anderson Silva.

    Dumbest comparison of the day.

    Till beat someone in the Top 10 and top 5.

    Thatch couldn't beat a withered Bendo, or Siyar.

    Till is 26. The average age of a UFC champ is 33-34. Woodley is 36. Till's best days are ahead of him.

    Settle down.

    All he had to do was win but he got absolutely shut out. That's why I said Till never got close to a title either.
