Tyrong won because he's an A-level athlete. Both basically predicted that. More will follow.

    Lawler said that Woodley is an excellent athlete but he's "a fighter".
    Well, the truth is, a guy who's only a fighter will always loose to an A-level athlete who trains MMA.
    A fighter is just an euphemism for B-level athlete who couldn't make it in another sport but is tough and can punch, which was enough for a long time but now this changes.

    Woodley himself talked about how this "making it a fight" and "being tough" isn't enough to win if you can't deal with superior athletisismn. He said that's why Amanda won and that's why Robbie won't win just because he 'makes it a fight'.


    Brock (A+-level athlete) demolished Mark Hunt ("fighter").
    Miesha is super tough and a fighter at heart, but Nunes is more explosive, stronger and hits harder ( not A level though).
    Woodley knocks out Robbie.


    Athletes will take over because MMA is growing.

    Shake's a solid B-level athlete.
    Durable, strong, wrestler, very good cardio but 0 explosive
    Needs some more black

    You can't take this one win to support a claim like that.

    I can just as easily say Rory macdonald beat woodley so it proves: superior fighter will ALWAYS beat an A level athlete.

    Makes no sense.

    Is this the Woodley era now...only explosive (yeeeess explosive, not black) guys will win and it will be a wash of A level guys

    I'm sure we have had these era changes before

    Lesnar used drugs to win.

    Stop making crappy comparisons.

    So A level athletes always win, but only on some specific dates?

    Because both brock and woodley have plenty losses.

    And wonder boy coming for that belt anyway. This era will be no better than the machida era or the new breed era.

    Seems to me Woodley is the new GOAT.

    Realistically with a sport like MMA with so many ways to lose, it's surprising that the turnover of champions hasn't been higher in recent years.
