    Woodley is very beatable on the feet.

    Rory beat him there, and Marquardt beat him there as well.

    And while Colby was obviously not as good a striker as RDA, his stand-up actually impressed me quite a bit in that fight. He held his own most ofn the time and even outstruck RDA at certain points of the fight.

    Those fights where years ago, clearly Woodley is better now. Also Nate was roided up. Fighting is about matchups. Is Colby taking Woodley down, no, dude struggled to even take down lw RDA. Colby's striking was not impressive at all verse RDA, not sure what you saw that was impressive lol.

    The fight will take place on the feet, and Colby has nothing for Woodley, just a matter of if Woodley ko's him early of if Colby can take a beating a lose a dec, that is the only suspense for me in that fight.

    Colby outboxed RDA on multiple occasions.

    Also the Rory fight wasn't that long ago.

    Just saying that Woodley is not unbearable on the feet.

    I agree that Woodley is not unbeatable on the feet, but Colby is not the guy to do it. I think Wonderboy outstruck Woodley both fights on the feet overall, but Woodley had 2 or 3 big moments in those fights that enabled him to not lose to WOnderboy. Me personally I don't think Woodley has truly ever beaten Wonderboy, I had the first fight a close Wonderboy win and the 2nd fight to me was a draw, 3 rounds Wonderboy, 2 woodley but woodley had a 10-8 round.

    Coming back to this matchup, the best Colby can hope for is to just cling and hope to keep Woodley's back on the cage, shades of what Shield's was able to do to Woodley, but that fight I thought was another draw, clearly these judges dont score enough draws for my taste.

    Colby is a douche, but he is a legit top 10 ww, maybe top 5, but Woodley is just a horrible matchup for him.

    maybe not unbearable but close to it. he wants to be a counter puncher but is not as skilled as that style calls for and actually just backs up and waits for an opening to unload a big right hand, just relying on his physicals attributes.

    Rory beats him again and I think Till takes his head off, but I agree with you overall.

    Colby beats most guys in the top 10 simply with his pressure and wrestling.

    Woodley-Wonderboy 1 was correctly scored a draw imo. I didn't watch Woodley-Wonderboy 2 and have no desire to watch it after hearing how terrible of a fight it was.

    Who do you think won Wonderboy vs Till?

    I think Till clobbers Woodley.

    Exactly.
    Which is why it might be exciting.
    Two negatives make a positive. Especially if neither can take the other down.

    I don't see how a healthy TW doesn't lay out CC.

    I had Wonderboy vs Till scored a draw. Super close fight.

    Would love to see if you come back to this thread after they fight, because the result will not be what you are saying it will. Woodley is the better fighter and will beat Colby's ass, pretty easy too. This will be the easiest fight for Woodley in years compared to his recent fights and comp.

    Hmmm... if you're so sure lets make a bet.

    If Colby wins I get to decide your name for a month and you have to make 1 pro-Israel post a day that whole month.

    I will do a money bet with you. But no other kind. You do not have to take that offer, only saying that is the only bet I will do. Would be modest too, not talking a crazy big number.

    No worries either way

    Some did, but I knew going in that RDA vs Colby would be a close fight, essentially a pickem and I was leaning on Colby to win by using his wrestling to nullify just enough of RDA's offense and that is what played out. Colby can beat other top 10 WW's probably also but Woodley is horrible matchup for him, RDA was a great matchup for him.

    Where did you post this knowledge of the RDA fight?

    I'm not saying you're lying, I just don't remember you saying this before the fight. Could've missed it though.

    Yes brazilians lose to wrestling by default. Calvin has a chance to beat every brazilian on earth. so he always had a good shot against RDA. I didn't think he would win but he always had the good shot.

    I had no desire to post it, but I knew that from the moment the matchup was made

    Only thing I take away from that gif is that she is hot as fuck, I seen that gif before, sexy chick.

    I knew going in Colby would likely win, would be a close fight though, played out exactly how I thought it would go. Gorgeous

    Your taste in women is usually shit but yes, I agree.

    And yeah unless you have evidence of you posting said opinion, then...
