That might be the best way to describe Tyron Woodley's win over top 170-pound prospect Jordan Mein at the Strikeforce: "Rockhold vs. Jardine" event that took place last Saturday night (Jan. 7, 2012) at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He got the job done.

The undefeated wrestling phenom did exactly what he's done in his last three fights, also decision wins, and that's control the pace with effective grappling and position. While he failed to secure a stoppage, it shouldn't take away from the fights he has finished, including five submissions and one technical knockout across his short but impressive career.

At least, that's "T-Wood's" argument (via Sherdog's Savage Dog Show), one he's making after Strikeforce executives failed to guarantee him a 170-pound title shot.

Woodley is a babyyyy!
Me Me Me ! I I I !
Always thinking of himself.
Maybe if he took a second & considered the fans for at least one fight then MAYBE he'd be set up with a title shot.

Title shots are supposed to draw ratings Woodley. You do the opposite.

That's because you have to be coming off a loss or drop a weight class to get a title shot.....duh, this is strikeforce.

God, I hope not.

Rep: "Welcome to Showtime, how can I help you?"
Kpro: "I want to cancel my free Showtime."
Rep: "But, sir, I don't understand, it's a free trial?"
Kpro: "Yeah, I know, but I want to cancel that sh**."
Rep: "Does this have something to do with Tyron Woodley's boring you to tears?"
Kpro: "You got it, honey."
Rep: "I'll cancel it at once."

I'd hardly even call it effective, many of his decision wins are pretty questionable. I am not a fan of Mr. Woodley.

If you are the best of a dead division you deserve the title. Why all the hate? His last fight was a hell of a performance and he's finished all but 2 of his fights.

He has 4 decisions in his last 5 fights, all in Strikeforce. Posting false information and asking obvious questions sounds like a very poor troll job.

He would've fought for the title by now if fans actually wanted to watch him fight.
