    Darren Till will inevitably be at Middleweight and has missed weight in 2 out 7 UFC fights. His second best win is over career LW Donald Cerrone, who has proven he can’t hang with elite WWs.

    Darren’s best ‘win’, is a fight he barely won, props to him for landing the only meaningful strike of the fight vs Thompson though. However, he missed weight for his toughest fight yet at the time... convienent he didn’t cut those last few pounds when he was under the impression Colby/RDA would fight for the belt regardless if he won or not.. interesting.

    Darren Till is a classic example of the UFC hype machine fooling fans. Hasn’t faced any wrestlers, yet taken down by Dalby and Cerrone/Wonderboy once each.

    Woodley will dominate and either KO him early or wrestlefuck him all night. Gambling bros, save your money and don’t bet on Tillsbury. I’ll post my bet slip later tonight and edit it into this post!

    I want Woodley to win because I was a fan of his before Till. But I still like what Till represents. He's not talent he's raw passion and ambition. He's just plain insanity and his fighthig style reflects the storm raging in his heart. I'm a firm believer that men like him can be stopped no more than the sun or the tides.

    Style wise I see Tyron attempting to negate his offense with his wrestling and trying to clench, looking to counter blows over hand rights but I still see Till attempting to pick him apart, the question is if Till prepared to stuff takedowns and work his way out of troublesome positions.

    I'll be a happy either way but I'm leaning towards he chosen one.

    I've been saying over and over that this is a classic UFC sell-job on Till and the fans have been sold wolf tickets. No one talks about the likelihood of Woodley just wrestling Till for five rounds. If it was GSP/Till, everyone would be expecting GSP to just wrestle him, but somehow because it's Woodley folks are forgetting he's a wrestler.

    Darren Till looks like a great fighter to me especially standing
    Woodley could test him wrestling but Woodley doesn't consistently chain wrestle well, and could gas if he tries

    Woodley is a journeyman, won't be a champ long either way.

    Reminder....Jon Jones 2nd best win was an old Vlady or Brandon Vera which ever you consider better before Shogun. Reminder.....Weidmans best win (not 2nd best) was Mark Munoz before he beat Anderson twice. Reminder...TJ's best win (not even second best) before dominating Barao 2x was Mike Easton. Let's keep going......Conors second best win was Dennis Siver or Poirier before he KO'd Aldo.

    Get it....who you beat prior doesnt mean much.

    Threads like this are honestly sad...

    Everybody was saying Cerrone was going to drag him into deep waters and show off his experience, but he got KO'd in 1 round.


    Then giving Till to wonderboy was considered "Rushing a potential star". He UD's Wonderboy in a 5 rounder. Win or lose, he'll still have a bright future at 185

    On one hand he's English so I want him to win, but on the other he's a scouser so I'm very conflicted...

    This is the most meaningful win in the division though. Having an extremely close fight with Wonderboy is more impressive than outstriking Damien Maia.

    Woodley also barely beat Wonderboy, also landed the only meaningful strike of the fight, so this should be very competitive.
