    Eventhough i believe this would be a striking chess battle, TDs could be important in order to drain the other guy gas tank and to score points if it goes.to a decision.

    So, who was/is a better wrestler?

    Woodley.
    He was division 1, he wrestled and was competitive with Hendricks who was a monster and a fantastic college wrestler. He missed all American honors twice but I think one of those he was like a win away. He won the big 12, the best conference most years.

    Kamaru won a national title but it was division 2.

    They both have minor worlds experience

    Askren>Hendricks

    And dont reference a high school match where Hendricks won by 2 or 3, its irrelevant

    As for TS, Woodley was the better college wrestler

    Woodley doesn't have the cardio to wrestle with Usman for any prolonged period of time. Usman will wrestlefuck him until he's gassed then win a decision.

    This is not a question, Woodley.

    Woodley was a division 1 all American at 165 for Missouri, he also won the big 12! Marty the faker who can’t even get his name right was division 2. The difference in talent between division 1 and 2 is astronomical. In the words of Brock Lesnar, “division 2 was created so guys who couldn’t go division 1 wouldn’t kill themselves”

    This.
    Division 3 wrestlers are sometimes better than Division 2, because div 3 athletes often go div 3 because they're picking the school over the program.
