    Ive seen lots of threads over 9 years here...where people pick fights and they are predicted but almost nobody gives reasons why they chose who they do.

    Here is a fight I would like to know who you would think would win, and also what exactly makes you believe that result would happen. It seems easier to just choose the guy you like better we all know this. After all its a forum where we discuss MMA topics. Thats the way it used to be although its dwindled down over time So rather than choosing your "favorite" fighter look into why you are making your prediction and explain how YOU think it would happen?

    My feelings on the fighters first and then my OPINION ON THE FIGHT:

    I dont like Conor McGregor's attitude. I think its just over played now. It was a great gimmick at first now I think its just coming off more obnoxious but besides that I wont deny his amazing talent. He is great.

    Tyron Woodley, I dont like his personality. The guy is to boring and doesnt excite me for his fights. Hes top of the food chain in his weight class at this moment in time. I believe he beats Wonderboy in a rematch.

    SO that being said I believe Tyron vs Conor would be a better back and forth fight than many would expect it to be. I feel it would be very identical to Conor/Nate 2. I see Woodley slowing down by the fourth and Conor at that point starting to come on strong like in the Conor/Nate 2 fight. I think Woodley would need to implement his wrestling and due to being the bigger stronger man finishing Conor on the ground via TKO late in the 4th or in the 5th

    Conor getting smothered.

    Pretty fucking sad that Conor is realistically one of the only people in the world that Woodley has the balls to fight. Lol!

    Conor has a 4" reach advantage over Woodley.

    Woodley is a great fighter, but it might be a bad night for him

    Even Conor knows he doesn't really wanna fuck with Woodley. He just did that with cameras around cause he knew he was safe.

    This is the same jabroni that ducked Edgar and is ducking Khabib. Woodley would end him.

    And I hate Woodley.

    Woodley knocked out Robbie Fucking Lawler in the 1st round this year.

    hard to say Woodley has A LOT of power Connor has A LOT as well but at LW and FW we really don't know how well that translates to WW

    despite what any idiot on here says TWood has the clear size advantage along with power and explosiveness, Conor has the better boxing but if that's enough to compensate is the question

    I think Woodley wins it. His size, wrestling, and power might be too much. Conor does have a punchers chance to win though.

    Woodley by tko, most likely. Conor has a chance, but not a strong one.

    I would have it as a pick-em fight. Both guys have clear paths on how they COULD win, but I don't think anyone can just guarantee that a) Woodley would be able to wade in and take him down easy before eating something big, or b) that Conor could stay outside and upright long enough to land big shots. Seems like a fight that is won/lost via a bad mistake or something flukey.

    You never know though when guys are going up against the "larger than life" fighter....take Hampage Vs. Jones for example: Hampage has the boxing/power to hurt any man, but he was just frozen...mesmerized and ended up just watching Jones the entire time, while it lasted. Everything was there for him...he was in shape, his TDD was really really good, but guy just couldn't get off. So I could see Woodley, not exactly an experienced champion/headliner, MAYBE getting caught up in the moment and stalling.

    Regardless, it's a fight I'd for sure love to watch.

    Tyron surprised me a LOT against Wonderboy. he made the necessary adjustments.

    no doubt in my mind he'd do the same for Conor.
