    Those shots to the body were nasty


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    They're really over playing those body shots.

    They're mostly harmless.

    Woodley needs a finish.

    Top class body work from Usman in the clinch in that round, and two awful separations from Goddard. Normally a huge fan of his but that was amateur level reffing, Usman was very clearly working in those situations.

    WTF is Goddard at, stay out of it.

    Don’t agree with that, those shots looked vicious to me and were coming from a good distance too for a clinch.

    I can't believe Usman's cardio holds up, he has thrown far too much. Woodley can come on strong.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    that Guillotine was never in.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 11,348 ✭✭✭✭ricero


    They were huge shots by both men there

    Woodley is goosed. Usman’s cardio is insane.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,276 ✭✭✭✭mdwexford


    Ref has been awful here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Woodley looks a broken man, fancy Usman to finish him off in the last. I knew Usman had good cardio, but I didn’t realise just how good it actually is.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    Usman could have ended that if he didn't go for the take down.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,549 ✭✭✭jcd5971


    Godard back to b leagues after this anyway, telling kamaru he's in a fight ffs


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,149 ✭✭✭mangobob


    This is incredible from Usman, but wtf is Goddard at. Absolutely awful decision to stand them up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,340 ✭✭✭✭Utopia Parkway


    Really weird Woodley performance. Seemed out of it from early on. Very passive.

    Usman very good all the same. Not who Dana would like to beat Woodley though I imagine.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    Woodley didn't even move for a high elbow there, he know's it's over.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,683 ✭✭✭Subcomandante Marcos


    Tyron will be absolutely disgusted with himself.
    Stinker of a fight and a stinker of performance form Tyron.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,735 ✭✭✭ASOT


    Was not expecting that at all.

    This is the Woodley I remember from the first Wonderboy fight. Except even more hesitant. Total and utter domination. Really was not expecting this. Brilliant from Usman.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Hugely impressive from Usman, seems like nobody here gave him a chance but I knew he could win it if he dominated the wrestling battle early on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,891 ✭✭✭SlowBlowin


    I thought it was a great fight...


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,325 ✭✭✭Man Vs ManUre


    Looking forward to Usman vs Covington. When CC fought RDA he was constantly going forward and looked like he could go forever, exactly the same as Usman tonight. And then there is the local rivalry involved. And Colby is such a crazy entertaining character. Bring it on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,056 ✭✭✭darced


    That was a masterclass in control and wrestling. I can't believe that level of cardio, that was an insane output.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 11,348 ✭✭✭✭ricero


    Scary stuff to do that to Woodley. Pure and utter domination. Don't see many at Welterweight at the moment that can stop that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Tyron will be absolutely disgusted with himself.
    Stinker of a fight and a stinker of performance form Tyron.

    He was completely shut down by a superior grappler, credit must be given to the other side more than it’s taken away from Woodley IMO.

    Woodley always waits for the big right hand, Usman knew that and made sure the opportunity didn’t present itself.

    I've long thought Usman was the man in that div that has the
    best chance against woodley and think he might just win it on pts by doing
    that little bit more over five.


    All I'm seeing is five rounds of both standing and think usman may do enough
    to get a points win, whether he can take that right hand I don't know though but I think he can go harder for five than woodley.

    I can't see it being entertaining but if it's even going into the fifth that won't be so bad.
    That first round will be 5 mins of caution imo

    Total domination that was incredible, wasn't expecting that though
    CC would probably beaten Woodley


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,735 ✭✭✭ASOT


    Woodley literally had nothing, I really wasn't expecting that at all. Fair play to Marty from Nebraska

    Complete demolition. Woodley can be a slow starter but he did absolutely nothing there, he seemed off. Props to Usman, 100% Usman is going to hard to stop.
