What a great match-up...

     Carlos is the definition of hard working, hard won progress in the sport.  He's had his severe challenges, but always seems to emerge even stronger, even more determined.  Been a fan of Condit's since WEC days, and continue to look for him to perform at the highest level.  

     Tyron Woodley is more of a newcomer, but as someone said in the video above, if you invented an MMA fighter from the ground up he'd probably look a lot like Tyron.  As a wrestler who has become a threatening striker, he reminds me of a younger Rashad Evans, but maybe even more athletic.  

    Looks to me like Tyron is working just as hard as Carlos on his conditioning, so this one may come down to experience, that has to go to Condit, and who wants it more, which looks like a toss-up to me.  As a fan I favor Condit, who has had so many tough wars with high level opponents, but can't dismiss a specimen like Woodley, who has the one punch ability to change everything in one moment...

Yeah, I'm behind Woodley because he is from St. Louis. However, Condit is a beast as well, and a smart fighter. I see him taking the win because of his experience too. If Woodley can land, anything can happen. Just don't see Condit giving him that chance. This is a hard fight for me to pick because I like them both a lot. So, I will probably pick with my heart and go with hometown.

Like Mu Shin, I've been a fan of Carlos Condit since his WEC days... I also think anything could happen in this match-up, and either man could be the victor.

I'd have a difficult time going against the more experienced and taller man in Condit, who has more wins by both KO/TKO and submissions than Woodley has wins !

I don't believe Condit engages Woodley in a stand-up battle... of course the fight will start on the feet and the fight may spend a minute or two in the vertical aspect of the tilt, but after the "feeling out" process takes place early on this one is going to the ground.

I haven't made my mind up just yet how this one ends... but I'm leaning in the direction of submission or decision.
