SF voted him as their rising star of the year for 2010. The commentators are always all over his nuts.

Alright alright journo To be fair it's only SF promoters iv heard guffawing over him. But iv tuned into some of his fights and just not understood what the fuss is all about. Lawal would destroy him.

It's the competition and limited experience.. This thread will be full of contradictions as his career unfolds.
Yea you're right.. When he fights a Hendricks, Diaz, Penn, or Koscheck. That way I'll watch him get his ass whipped.

Please God let him fight Koscheck

They'll probably do Woodley and Saffiedine for the vacant belt. I actually interviewed Woodley recently and he was very insistent about wanting the belt.

If an ass whooping is what it takes for him to reach his potential, then I'm all for it.

He may be a bit passive, but I look forward to watching his career unfold.. A rematch with Saffiedine should bring out the best in both men.

Probably shouldn't create or comment in MMA threads when you don't understand how weight classes work.

Woodley has talent, that isn't in question. He also has some skills BUT after stepping up a level his style changed and the strikes and subs had gone. It is clear that his aim is to hold down his opponent for 3 rounds. Maybe it is due to the level of striker that he was facing that he didn't want to risk letting the fight be standing for any longer than it had to. Put him in against another wrestler and see what happens.

Eitherway, he isn't overrated as his last 3 wins have been decent and he is undefeated and in line for the 170 SF title BUT he is going about his business as a lower level GSP.
