Tyron Woodley Says His Wrestling Will Be a Weapon Against Carlos Condit
Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.14.2014

- Tyron Woodley recently spoke about tomorrow's bout with Carlos Condit. Here are the highlights…

On Condit's Takedown Defense: "I think his takedown defense is a flaw. "But I can't think, ‘OK, I'm a wrestler, so let's just take him down every round and I'll win.' I think that's a stupid way of going into the fight thinking."

On His Wrestling: "I put myself in a position where I made wrestling an option for me," Woodley says. "I don't have to wrestle. I don't have to take another shot for the rest of my life if I don't want to. I have good enough hands, good enough boxing, good enough timing to strike with anybody in our division."

On Not Becoming Predictable in His Offense: "You can't get too excited about your own medicine," Woodley says. "I remember watching Rashad Evans, who sometimes I look up to as a mentor and a big brother, and he fought (Lyoto) Machida and forgot his wrestling. He left it at home because he had some big knockouts and big wins. The true game of mixed martial arts is putting your wrestling in there, putting your striking in there, but also being deceiving ‚ hiding behind your punches if you're wrestling, and hide behind your wrestling if you're punching. It's just a matter of blending it all together."

On Evolving as a Fighter: "For me it's just being wiser, finding my opportunities and really fighting a smart fight," Woodley says. "I'm going to out there and put on an amazing show."
