    Hard to say. He hasn't proven as much as gsp. But part of me says fan doesn't want Woodley to fight gsp cuz he might vary well win. Than where does gsp go..... you let both of them keep winning and in a yr have a champion v's champion fight=$

    As a GSP fan i was a lot more worried about Bisping than Woodley. Bigger, infinite cardio, high volume, better striking than woodley (lets be honest, all he has is a big overhand. GSP can figure this out).

    Woodley needs 6 or 7 dominant defenses.

    He's got a long road ahead of him before he is given that accolade.

    See AV.

    I usually agree, but I do think TW is one of the best ever.

    He fights Ivy league smart which is boring, but he negates his opponenets.

    Wonderboy who has dismantled everyone he has fought had no answer for TW not once but twice and Maia who except for (Covington) was on a terror had no answer for TW either.

    Love TW and he destroyed Lawler.

    I wonder if UFC 911 will be a Muslim vs American themed card? No real connection to your fahrenheit theory but thats what popped in my head.

    Will it be for the Interim UFC Intercontinental TV title? or will they make Conor vacate that and make it for the Undisputed UFC Intercontinental TV Title?

    To be more accurate. Woodley is a less aggressive KOS

    Georges eats hard hitting wrestlers who dont throw left handed bombs for breakfast

    I've really, really disliked watching Woodley fight recently, but credit where credit's due, he's one of the best welterweights ever. Nipping at GSP's heels at this point.

    What's annoying about him is that he has vicious power but hasn't been pulling the trigger recently. Colby Covington made a mess of Maia, and his striking is piss-poor compared to Woodley's. Woodley could've starched Maia but chose to play it safe.

    Also, Woodley's right about there not being many high profile fights at welterweight currently, but I'd like to see him beat a couple more legit contenders (Covington, RDA, Usman, Till) before calling him the greatest welterweight ever.

    Johnny is far more active and he is left handed. It's a very big difference.

    Hush with your thoughtful post. Too many Sherdoggers are confused by any analysis beyond 'good/bad at striking/grappling'. Actually pointing out stylistic differences is going too far.

    He's also a great athlete who's low to the ground. Quick hands as well.Best mma wrestler gsp will have ever faced imo.

    Hughes > Rory/Nate in terms of name value, career, legacy etc

    And GSP avenged both losses convincingly, Tyrone didn't.
