    He reckons kamaru usman would be the toughest test on jre's latest prodcast. He says he is legit and would be the best fighter he would potentially have to face down the track and he also gives props to the new pool of talented fighters that are on the rise like ponzinibbio and till. He even addresses covington who he famously refers to as 'coward queefington'.
    More importantly, he says that he wants to fight against opponents eho have earned his respect. Kamaru usman is one of them. Can any of these 3 beat woodley right now?

    Usman, till and ponzi?

    I heard him on the podcast

    NON RACIST STATEMENT COMING IN

    He reminds me off Rashad Evans when he was champ
    I remember Dana saying in a vlog 'Rashad thinks the world is against him' and Tyron is exactly the same

    And funnily enough, I feel like Usman is exactly the same

    Now I'm not saying there's a trend there but...

    But seriously I don't see anyone beating him for a long Time
    He's got an annoyingly good style for MMA which is working very well

    I think at the moment Woodly beats them all. Ponz never had an easy fight with Perry, so he obviously isn't on tgat level. Till and Usman aren't tested against top competition yet, and I wonder if Till's cardio holds up plus what is he ground game and wrestling defence like?

    I'd rather see Woodly fight RDA.

    I can see till giving him some problems if he pressure strikes him.

    Disregarding those three mentioned I'd like to see RDA jump in there with Woodley, he's smart enough to apply pressure & make T-Wood work, don't think the other three can do that.

    Not his biggest fan but I think with the current crop of contenders he'll be champ for awhile, just wish he stops fighting "not to lose" & he might start getting the respect & money fights he so craves.

    Till or Ponz. I want anyone to beat Tyron. He has a "race-filled" deck of cards that he uses constantly.

    Till is a massive WW. I'd favor him in the fight.

    I feel like RDA would outwork Tyron and be too active especially down the stretch.He wouldn't allow Tyron to set the pace.I think Tyron would need an early KO/TKO in that one.Just my opinion.

    Yeah I agree that's one scenario

    But I honestly think if they fought (and I've got my bet ready to place)
    I think Tyron wins by knockout

    On the flip side of that, it'd be nice if his opponents fought like they actually wanted to take the belt from him. I think RDA would at least try.
