    Tyron, who Till looked an entire weight class bigger than, beat the ever loving shit out of him. He wants to move UP in weight? Good luck with that.

    Santos or Adesanya would be my pick. More so Adesanya since he says he's the best striker in the UFC.

    Worked well enough for Bobby and Kelvin.

    I tend to agree. The weight cuts seemed to be exceedingly difficult for him and I don't think the Woodley fight really showed anything to be honest. Either he was being super inactive in hopes of saving gas for 3/4/5, he froze in his big moment, or you could argue he was completely out game planned. No matter the reason, Till did not show up to fight in rounds 1 and 2 of their contest and that was obvious. I don't think you can take a whole lot away from that other than he can take quite a few decent shots before going down/out.

    I can't think of anyone at 185 that has speed comparable to Woodley other than maybe Hall, but Hall doesn't have the takedown threat. I guess we won't know until he fights at 185 and really he's going to be suspect unless he beats a Weidman, Romero, Gastelum, or Jacare.

    The cut is also hurting his progression. Folks noticed how drained he was a weight out from the fight, and it's because he spends his training camps focused on cutting weight rather than improving. Someone else said the same thing recently, maybe Anthony Smith?

    Looking forward to Till filling out and putting on some fun MW fights.
