    ...when I had picked woodley to win this easily?

    I was a super longtime fan impressed with his wrestling match against Hendricks and his strike force deep hip takedowns

    AND NEW!!!!!!

    you're not the only one that picked him dummy, stop bragging.

    purely comparing Woodley's recent fights to Lawler's recent fights, it's clear that Lawler was the better fighter.

    What people were not taking into account was the wear n' tear that Lawler was accumulating in the 5 round bangfests he was involved in again and again.

    Comparatively Woodley wasn't taking a lot of damage because:

    1) he was facing less talented strikers

    2) he would win smoothly

    3) he would loose without taking too much damage

    4) his career hasn't been as long (in MMA)

    Well he was on what...a year and half layoff and his last fight was a decision win against Gastelum? I'd be a tad bit skeptical of his chances too.

    I had Tyron KO'ing Robbie in round 1, Robbie takes too much damage, I knew that chin would crack.

    Woodley was only a +110 underdog.

    The line was almost even. This was anyone's fight.

    2 weeks ago I was talking to James in accounting, "if Nick Diaz can one shot Robbie then twood def got this, plus he doesn't have the wear and tear that Robbie went through in the last 18 mos"

    Because he was the underdog. There were a lot of factors against him. Robbie had been active and beaten Rory Mac, the same guy who easily beat Tyron. Tryon had been sitting on the sideline for a year plus and his last win was a close decision over Kelvin Gastelum. I honestly though Robbie would finish Woodley in the fourth round since he gets stronger as the fights go on and Tyron has been known to slow down. I was definitely not expecting a first round KO.

    I just finished watching Making a Murderer, and I think there's probably an explanation for this

    You picking Woodley has nothing to do with him being the obvious underdog.

    Also, dumb troll thread.
