What mattered most at UFC 228? Here’s a thing or two …

What have you got to say about T-Wood now?

They said Tyron Woodley was a hopelessly boring fighter. They said Darren Till was being rushed into a title shot due to timing and circumstances. They were right about one thing, and maybe it served to help disprove the other.

After doing almost nothing in the first round, Till walked into a Woodley right hand to start the second. It was a downward slide from there, and by the time it was finally over we’d all gotten a good reminder that there’s levels to this game. Right now Woodley is occupying the one at the very top. Woe unto the man who has to try to knock him off next, especially since it’s likely to be the guy he likes the least.
