    He might catch WB in the first round, but that's probably his only way to victory. He can't out wrestle him, and he can't out strike him either. And, contrary to popular belief, WB doesn't have a weak chin. I think he can take Woodly's best shots. Woodly might end up confused with WBs weird movement and unorthodox striking. How is he going to react to a spinning back kick to the face and gut? How will his cardio hold up? I predict this will be Mendes vs McGregor 2.0. Or, Aldo vs McGregor/Werdum vs Miocic 2.0.

    It's actually spelled 'Wonderboybutt' and it's beautiful.

    He can outwrestle him, but striking is a crap-shoot. Tyron has the hands, but Wonderboys kicks are next level.

    I didn't think Tyron would beat Lawler, but here we are. Wonderboy will be favored in his next fight over any welterweight in the world, but Woodley has a chance in any welterweight fight.

    His chance is to go and put pressure like no one did to Thompson before. Thompson was caught and hurt in one of his recent fights, if it was Woodley it would be a finish. That's his chance, really.

    There is no other way to him beat Thompson.

    Both fighters are more than capable of beating one another, and I do favor Wonderboy in this fight. But Tyrone is so damn explosive, and he has retarded power. That punch he just landed on Lawler would floor anyone in the WW division. This is not a fight I bet on.

    Wonderboy beats him unless T-Wood can land a bomb on him early.

    I see Woodley being on the defense after eating shots he had no idea were coming and after getting discouraged by swinging at air. WB by putting on a striking clinic

    I know MMA math isn't really useful, but Rory was literally dancing in front of Woodley all Muhammad Ali style n sh*t, and yet had nothing for Wonderboy.......

    Woodley has a punchers chance. He might get lucky. But I foresee Wonderboy picking him apart and making it look easy. Rory owned Tyron because of his footwork. I doubt Tyron has improved enough to handle Wonderboy's footwork, distance management, and timing.

    But Tyron does have a punchers chance.

    Lol, anybody who thinks Woodley has anything less than a puncher's chance against Wonderboy simply doesn't know the game. His movement alone is next level shit, and Woodley knows it too. I do not understand for the life of my why the UFC has shafted this dude for so long. He is like the White Machida of WW. You're screwed TYRON.

    Facepalm at Woodley can't out wrestle him.

    Woodley is going to negate WB's best assest: speed. WB has relied on being the fastest guy in the cage and against Woodley he won't be.

    Fair point. So woodley either has a punchers chance or his next option is to Fitch him.

    I feel like Woodley will beat wonderboy, and suddenly the narrative will be "wonderboy only beat USADA Hendricks and soulless Rory, he had no chance against Woodley." Calling it now.

    Johnny Hendricks had proved not be someone you should expect to lose to.
    He peaked in the GSP fight and has looked noticeably worse in every fight since.
    Woodley is what Rumble was suppose to be at 170.

    Up next Reem takes the belt from Stipe.

    Woodley is so done it's shameful that people think he actually has a chance. Truly believe that. He's on an entirely different level.

    Rumble's a better striker. Tyron's the better wrestler. I think woodley stands alone and can't really be compared to anyone. I still think wonderboy controls the distance and picks woodley apart from the outside.
