    I'm sorry, but I think in Lawler fights he takes himself an unwarranted credit.
    They were both in ATT for so much time, I'm sure he got a lot of inside info or actually witnessed enough of him to study his weaknesses.

    Other fights - again, fighting genius does not win close decisions with minimal strike attempt.
    That's not how all elite fighters fight. Mighty Mouse is not like that, Dillashaw is not like that, Cormier is not like that

    if he was such a fighting genius he would have been able to get a stoppage against maia at least. dude had his eye closed by the 2nd-3rd round and tyron just chilled the rest of the fight. cool he ko'd robbie in a minute 30 seconds but that appears to be an outlier performance thus far. if that was the norm for him he would have stopped maia when he had the plenty of chances to.

    No wonder that his fights are boring. He takes away everything from his opponent.

    I don't remember these 3 taking massive damage...

    BTW if you compare him with boxers, prime Vlad Klitchko maybe? I remember him being known for a small amount of strikes to victory

    I disagree Woodley broke maia Mentally,the only guy that Woodley beat but not decisively was wonderboy thompson and that’s a guy who has one of the trickiest styles in the UFC today If anything this video shows us how much the belt means to TYRON he studies his opponents Till isn’t Anything special he was gifted a Decision against WB Tyron will Wrestle fuck him

    MM not do much but Dilla took big shots from Cruz and Cody. DC had a war with gus and obliterated by Jones twice Woodley hasn't been in any wars other than the uppercut one shot years ago

    All 3 fights of Wonderboy you mentioned here were close. No one was "broken" there - I'm sure Woodley did not intend to fight Wonderboy like that.
    Just to hear judges having a draw, then 1 judge out of 3 having a draw - this is not something Woodley should expect to hear in the end after a perfectly executed gameplan.
    His "genius" definitely took vacation in Wonderboy fights.

    As of Maia - Rory broke him as well. But he also beat Maia up badly for 2 rounds, using heavy kicks.
    Again, it's not something impossible - to break Maia. A lot of fighters got the same result.

    I agree, TJ took some shots. But has he been injury prone? Does his style make him an inactive fighter? The answer is no.
    Don't forget that MOST injuries fighters get through TRAINING, not fights. Training is tougher, lasts longer. Do you think Woodley is safe in training? I don't think so.
    But he's safe in fights. Why? Because he;s fighting not to lose. This is how draws come, and this is how close fights and minimal strikes come.
    This is not about his high level of fight IQ - this is about mentality. Not every elite and clever fighter has it - Woodley does and it's unrelated

    Not to mention Din Thomas was recording Lawler's training sessions leading up to that fight causing Robbie to split from ATT even tho he loves Dan Lambert & Mike Brown. Allegedly.

    If you consider Wonderboy to be the superior fighter (I think I do) than it takes a genius plan to eek out a win.

    If you are the better fighter than yes its not a genius plan to eek out a victory

    I can't say who is superior fighter before the fight.
    But Thompson patient counter style matched "perfectly" with Woodley's playing-it-safe

    meh.
    Neutralizing opponents is all great, but he should attack some as well.

    I hope Till takes him out of his comfort zone for once.
    As a champion he truly became GSP 2.0, taking decisioning to a whole new level (of boring).

    I mean, with GSP, at least he did take people down. he jabbed.
    Woodley is just neutralizing his opponents but doing a lot less action.

    re-read it. I just edited (exactly to that point).

    Let me quote it, as not your fault I edited after posting :)

    "I mean, with GSP, at least he did take people down. he jabbed.
    Woodley is just neutralizing his opponents but doing a lot less action."

    Make sense now?

    Maybe he should’ve analysed Rory Macdonald a little harder
