    Would be cool to see an aggressive, pressuring Woodley for a change. I could've sworn i watched an interview or read some post of his saying he's switched his style up and will start leading the dance from now on. That would be awesome, aggressive Woodley sounds like a dangerous fighter.

    Discuss..

    He’s shook. Usman took the last bit of aggression out of Woodley.

    I hope to be proven wrong

    What or who is he shook of exactly?
    I get that Usman dominated him but I don't understand where your conclusion of Woodley being scared is coming from?

    That fight was completely shocking. Tyrone literally didn’t fight. Didn’t do anything. I was expecting a classic in that fight.

    Hopefully. Fighters quickly revert to what they know works best whenever facing adversity. So even though Woodley plans on being aggressive from the start, I hope he stays consistent with that plan throughout a 25 minute fight. One good punch, kick, takedown etc. could obviously discourage any further attempt. Plus lets not forget Woodley isn‘t the smallest of WW‘s. It takes energy and cardio to push a certain pace. Woodleys older style was a bit of a 50/50 - it allowed him to keep energy and power in the later rounds, but made everything in between a coin toss (Wonderboy fights are a perfect example). I still believe Woodley is one of the best WW‘s competing, but there is no denying people are starting to figure him out so in a way he has no choice but to change his style and meet opponents with aggression.

    I'm on the Violent Headspace Woodley hype train this week. Let's hope...

    He has a tough time pushing the pace because of his cardio

    He has a similar strategy as Yoel where he coasts for a while then explodes, but sometimes he can never find that opening... idk he should be able to beat Burns unless he's too old

    I think he'll win easily if he fights Burns aggressively.

    Tyron is no slouch but he tends to give up when he has no answer as seen in half of his loses (Rory, Usman).

    Hopefully he returns to the form he was in when he beat Till. Still a beast.

    Can you imagine if he was an aggressive fighter? Dude would be terrifying.

    Yeah, but I think he would probably gas out

    Woodley got humiliated in that “fight”. It was so one-sided. I felt bad for Woodley.

    Yes, I can.
    After 3 minutes, he would go full Ngannou.
    also, this might happen

    It'll be FKL vs. Tony Ferguson if he goes too hard and doesn't get a finish quick.

    Violent Tyrone head hunts, gasses and gets subbed in the third.

    He's going to be telling you how great his TD defense was after the fight.

    I had a convo with him at this barbershop a few months ago and he went on and on about how “unhittable he’s is in sparring, and how he’s the best defensive boxer in mma” He’s a nice guy (at least in my interactions with him) but I’m not to sure how prepared he would be for someone really putting heavy offensive pressure on him. It all came off extremely gun shy to me. Hope I’m wrong because I do like him as a fighter he has all the tools to be on top again just needs to know when to bite down on his mouthpiece and believe in his hands a bit more.
