    Between putting on one of his career-best showings, and making Dana so got dang mad by winning, did Woodley turn any of you guys into fans?

    Edit: I forgot to add my stance, ha.

    I’ve been a fan, but was wavering going into this fight. I like Woodley as an athlete, I like how vocal he is about social issues in America, and I really wanted to keep digging him as a fight, but fuck me the second Wonderboy fight and the Maia fight made it difficult.

    The mix of him speaking on the Nike x kaepernick situation this last week PLUS putting in a killer performance PLUS making Dana so fucking mad was all just too good. I’m stoked, just hope he keeps that aggression up against Colby.

    It depends if he can keep that style of aggressive fighting up then yes, if he goes back to fighting not to lose then no.

    Was always a fan but always felt his style held back alot of his talent, I was honestly proud of him this weekend. He showed off more of his skillset with his Vicious ground and pound, and a nice vintage sub. I'm a fan of any fighter who puts it on the line and produces good fights, hell that Camacho guy who got Ko'd by Neal was a fucking badass, His warrior scream made me a fan forever.

    Tyron is a great fighter and obviously a bright guy, but man is he boring.
    Still not a fan.

    I'm just pissed he wasnt that exciting against Maia since I was at that fight live. Hes hit or miss.

    It wasn't a particularly boring performance vs Till, was it?

    Ive liked him since he wrecked Koscheck.

    But it was very validating, which was nice

    I was upset when he beat Robbie... but his Champ Camp videos on Youtube are what brought me around.

    Nope. He ducked Colby to fight half the fighter in Till.

    Woodley has been one of my favourite fighters latley because of hes ability to gameplan and execute. Im of the mindset that a champ has the right to be some what defensive and that the challenger should push the action. With that said I told myself that if Woodley can win dominant, as he should against the imo lesser fighter in Till, he would enter my top 5 current active fighters. Woodley is peaking atm and I really enjoy watching him execute hes gameplans

    I totally agree, but three snoozers in a row had me questioning it. I think the Till x Wonderboy fight, with that one being a bore, relieved some of the criticism Woodley took directly over his fights with Thompson, but as you said, I was really hoping for a dominant win this weekend, and the hype definitely convinced me we might have sssm Till take it.

    Hated Woodley since his SF days where he just laid on top of folk racking some easy wins.

    His boring fights with Thompson and Maia only fueled the fire.

    Not to mention his constant self-victimisation (regardless of how true it is)...

    This W/E he won me over a little. Could feel he really wanted to prove a point. Was out for blood. Not fighting to NOT LOSE, but fighting time kick some ass.

    I'm holding steady on him. 50/50 ATM.

    Let's see if he can capitalise on 230 missing a headliner.

    Nope… i don’t think he fought any differentl than the Wonderboy or Maia fights, it just so happened that Till wasn’t able to get back up after a counter, and got mauled for a while before getting sub… Wonderboy got back up after he got knocked down, and the fight kept going in the same boring Woodley fashion, Woodley didn’t even dare to go to the ground against Maia.

    Conclusion: Woodley is still backpedaling and will have more boring fights, the difference was the opponent...

    He is terribly boring until he lands the overhand right and hurts the guy then he really goes for it.

    He is a great fighter though and arguably the 2nd best WW of all time.

    Now I want him against GSP more than anything

    I was all up for GSP vs Khabib, but Woodley GSP would be an awesome matchup now I'm sure.
