    Till shouldn't fight aggressively. I don't think either fighter has the gas tank to go hard all five rounds so if Till decides to hit the pedal hard, he'll end up gassed by round 4, with Woodley being the fresher fighter due to his methodical style. Till needs to pick his shots and avoid the takedowns to win. Woodley needs a ko or dominant wrestling.

    Regardless of who you want to win or where you want the action to be, if you were Till's coach, would you fight Woodley methodically in order to avoid his power right counter or would you frustrate Woodley by picking shots?

    He may walk into a counter doing so, but I think pressuring Tyon is the way to beat him.

    This fight is going to be awesome. I can feel it.

    I don’t know that either guy gets a finish, but it’ll be fun.

    He should clean his fookin chin out.

    Seriously though, I think Darren can keep the pace up, he's a pressure fighter with high striking skill.
    But he might have to depend on that chin for a bit, because I think Tyron will get him with some good shots before he takes charge.

    No, unless he wants to get KOed or taken down. Woodley is a puzzle to solve

    Well I know I’m not a fan of passive fights so I’m going with both guys need to be aggressive. Don’t want Woodley Wonderboy 3

    He needs to pressure if he wants to win

    That doesn't mean fight aggressively though

    This fight is going to be really boring

    I think so. if Woodley was able to retain his belt twice against Wonderboy I don't see why he wouldn't be able to do the same against Till. If Till tries to counter punch or point fight I don't see how he wins. He needs to pressure Woodley even though he risks getting his lights shut off. Great risk can equal great reward.

    Plus I want to see a finish so I hope Till moves forward often

    If I were him I wouldn't. Being overly aggressive can lead to easier takedowns for Woodley and also more openings for that right hand. Till has more long-range weapons so he should try to keep the fight at his ideal punching range and avoid the clinch altogether.

    See Mcdonald v. Woodley. I think Woodley has Till though.

    Has Woodley ever been in a war? The closest I can think of would be The first Thompson fight, but I don't think that really qualifies. Would be awesome to see what he's got in a competitive, back and forth fight where both guys take some big damage. Woodley is one of the most calculated champions I've ever seen though, and seems to prioritize minimizing the damage he takes (nothing wrong with that - they can't all fight like Gaethje)so I doubt we see a war.

    No, he should stand there as if he were catatonic while facing the fence of the octagon and lure Woodley into a trap.

    That’s a fair point. The first Wonderboy fight, his fight with Gastelum had some back and forth moments, but no, he isn’t typically involved in chaotic fights.

    I suspect things will be a bit different tonight. Although either man going to sleep early is entirely possible. I don’t know that it has to be an absolute war to be an entertaining fight. It’s just hard for me to get a read on this one, and I can’t imagine we see another staring contest.

    We’ll see though. I hope I’m right.

    I'm sure he wouldn't want to relive the marquardt fight again. Even before getting ktfo, he was dropped and rocked multiple times. Rory pieced him up, but besides those two, i don't think he's taken much damage.

    I too think this will be an entertaining fight. Even though he hasn't let on, I think Woodley is coming into this fight with something to prove about the perception of him as a boring fighter. I think he is going to try to get a stoppage. If that's his mentality I think we are in for an excellent fight, because you know Till would gladly oblige if Woodley wants to stand and trade

    The last time Woodley had something to prove he fought Nate Marquardt. Woodley is too smart to let his ego affect his gameplan, I think. We'll find out soon enough!
