SAN JOSE, Calif. – Tyron Woodley isn't calling out marquee fighters just yet.

The full-time fighter and sometime grad student is happy to remain a prospect. Give him a year and then he'll talk.

"I like the pace I'm on," Woodley (7-0 MMA, 5-0 SF) said following his quick win over Andre Galvao at this past Saturday's "Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons 2" event. "I don't think I'm far."

Still, it was a pivotal victory for "T-Wood," who prior to his big-show debut was a regular on the Strikeforce Challengers series. He has yet to meet a setback in seven professional appearances.

He is still getting better. I say let him fight

Riggs, Heiron
Cyborg or Smith,
this will give him experience
beating 1 or 2 name opponent's and a bigger challenge,

Than have him fight Daley for the number 1 cont. spot
