    You might just be, lie Blue said TW prob does everything better then Colby and any slight size advantage wont mean much as TW has the power to nullify it anyhow. Cardio and setting a very high fight pace is CC's best chance .

    Agreed, but that's how I can potentially see it going, Colby just smothers him, Woodley gasses.....CC is just such a great pressure fighter

    That's exactly how I see things playing out

    Again, I'm not convinced it is. I know Woodley has had issues in the past, but he's went 5 rounds a lot lately with no issues at all. I thought Till would also murder TWood in the clinch, but you need to able to clinch to work there, I doubt Woodley will have any trouble keeping the fight where he wants it.

    I guess my thing is really that Woodley, despite being a bit of a twat, is just seriously under rated and is actually very, very good.

    But look at those 5 round fights, Maia.....0 happened to test Woodley's endurance.....both Wonderboy fights he lost and he wasn't pushed endurance wise either.....hell I can go 5 rounds at the pace those fights went. When CC pushes TW and makes him work, that cardio meter will crash and redline quickly

    Yes, but Woodley dictated the pace of those fights......when someone tries to engage and push on Woodley, they usually end up KO'd......Till, Lawler, DHK. Granted Colby has the fall back of wrestling to combat some of that, that those others didn't.

    Woodley didn't dictate crap against Wonderboy....that's how Wonderboy has always fought...either way the point was Woodley's gas tank wasn't tested in those 3 fights, it most definitely will be against CC. Woodley is still the favorite IMO but all I'm saying is don't sleep on CC, he has a better shot at winning than most are giving him credit for

    I see CC rushing in to pressure and getting caught or countered...TW is a d-bag of a personality but an impressive fighter that I don't think has shown all but a fraction of his skills.
    Just because I can NEVER remember how to score my points!
    6 points for winning fighter, then another 2 if you guess the method, then another 2 if you guess the round

    Because people don't like him. CC has the best chance in the division currently to beat Woodley, I just don't think he will. But shouldn't be counted out so easily.

    I don't count him out either, all he ha to do is win 3 of 5 rounds while avoiding getting ko'd coming in. He doesn't really have ko power but he throws punches in bunches which is hard for a lot of fighters to deal with. Hopefully TW makes the fight happen sooner then later while the iron is hot for him.....maybe he can start to get some positive momentum.
