    He's been inactive for a year. How will he look? Will his biggest weapon the right hand be affected? He was unable to throw it in the Maia fight because he tore his labrum in the first round. He underwent surgery in December. Will Till be able to exploit this?

    Will Tillamisu even be able to make weight without going full Machinist?

    Not sure what that has to do with Tyron's shoulder injury, but okay.

    till making weight is actually a bigger issue than tyrons shoulder.

    Getting sprawled and laid on extended arms would hurt more than throwing an over hand. Maybe he'll be more of a boxer and less wrestling . Hard to be less of anything for him

    Correction this is the first fight Woodley has accepted in over a year. He was ready and willing to fight nate in December

    well that's another issue entirely. Tearing your labrum is a serious injury and the way he described it sounded pretty bad. I'm just asking if he'll be able to bounce back from such a serious injury.

    I get the feeling Woodley is too experienced and too cerebral to lose this fight. He’s not going to take any uneccesary risks as the champion.

    Didn't know he had hurt his shoulder because im a filthy casual I guess.

    Hmm that makes me think differently of his odds.

    Nah, Tyron has made himself a smart fighter and will be more than capable.

    I think Tyron is capable of beating Till decisively.

    That's the thing. He's got two damaged shoulders. I'm wondering how he can stay atop a division with such serious injuries. I feel he's gameplanned to avoid those situations where he could further injure his shoulders and that's partly why his fights have been so boring.

    I’ve torn my labrum twice and let me tell you, it’s a terrible injury, especially for athletes. Range of motion and stability are huge concerns.

    Perhaps Tyron has rehabbed and strengthened his shoulder back to optimal levels. But man shoulder injuries can sometimes break dudes due to the joint just giving out over time. Hopefully he’s healthy.
