Tyron Woodley: Sage Northcutt Is Faster & More Powerful Than Wonderboy: UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley is headed for the biggest fight of his MMA career when he faces surging No. 1 contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in the co-main event of November 12’s blockbuster UFC 205 from Madison Square Garden in New York City.

After winning the title with an earth-shaking first round knockout over former champion Robbie Lawler at July 30’s UFC 201, ‘The Chosen One’ will now meet an opponent whom many feel has the perfect to defeat his hard-charging style, as “Wonderboy” used his unique karate-based offense to defeat former title contender Rory MacDonald in his most recent bout at UFC Fight Night 89.

The one-sided decision win secured seven straight wins and a title shot for Thompson, who has finished Johny Hendricks, Jake Ellenberger, and surging middleweight Robert Whittaker during the streak. He may possess the most momentum of any fighter in the Octagon, yet Woodley believes Thompson isn’t even as good as his new training partner.

In a video released on his Youtube channel, Woodley is featured sparring with highly touted UFC lightweight Sage Northcutt. Apparently impressed with ‘Super’ Sage’s skills, Woodley made the bold proclamation that Northcutt is indeed faster, more powerful, and in possession of better takedown defense than the larger and more experienced Thompson (transcribed by Bloody Elbow):

“These young guys, man. Old man got to whip out those new tricks, because they come at you,” Woodley said about Northcutt. “I work with Sage. He’s obviously in a similar style as the opponent I will be fighting against.”

“He, just in my opinion, is just a little bit faster, and his strikes come with a little bit more force. His takedown defense should be better. His power should be better, so I’m actually training with a better version of what I’m going to compete with.”

Those words could (will) evoke the collective ire of the online MMA community in a big way, as Woodley has already been the subject of many an online attack following his win over Lawler, including alleged instances of racism.

But aside from those ridiculous back-and-forths, Northcutt is still very inexperienced compared to Thompson, and has yet to display the pure knockout power that the flashy, pinpoint striking “Wonderboy” has used to win his way to the top of one of MMA’s deepest divisions.

Do you believe Northcutt comes close to outclassing Thompson in the areas Woodley focused on? Watch their training video and decide for yourself:

  1. 市販のホワイトニングに効果があるかって?
    死活歯に銀が詰まっているよりも、自分ののもともとの歯と同じ色の白い詰め物に取り換えたほうが、さらに魅力的な歯になります。これも、前歯なら保険適用になります。奥のほうの歯でも、普通の歯医者さんなら軽度のプラスチック製の詰め物自体は2000円の低価格から保険適応になります。これもお金だそうとするのはピンキリですが、近年は価格も数年前と比べてだいぶ下がっているようです。市販のホワイトニングがやりたいなら訊いてみましょう。ホワイトニングすると、おまけに金属アレルギーなどのリスクが低下して、口内全体が調子よくなります。その後白い歯を手に入れたあとは、定期的なケアが一番大切です。毎日歯はしっかりブラッシングして、3ヶ月に一回は歯医者さんに通って、歯のホワイトニングを保ちましょう。第一印象もキレイになりますし、歯は一生使う道具です。健康第一と考えて、市販で販売されている歯磨きでもいいのでこの習慣をやり続けてみてください。歯に自信がもてると、気持ちも元気になりますから。
