Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) outcast Nate Marquardt recently labeled his upcoming opponent, current Strikeforce welterweight contender Tyron Woodley, a "boring fighter" criticizing his wrestling-based style ahead of their 170-pound title fight at Strikeforce: "Rockhold vs. Kennedy" on July 14, 2012.

Undefeated (10-0) in his young mixed martial arts (MMA) career, Woodley has used his outstanding wrestling skills to grind his way to the victory and keep his record mint. On the flip side, six of his 10 wins have come by way of submission or knockout, with five of those finishes coming in the very first round.

So it is safe to say that "T-Wood" is not a one-trick pony.

Responding to "The Great's" comments, Woodley says the solution is simple, if you don't want a "grown man" taking you down, then get back to your feet and keep it there. The former undefeated (48-0) High School wrestling champion also says the criticism shouldn't go to the fighter that is taking his opponent down at will, but to the one who can't stop it from happening.

Check out Woodley's comments on his recent appearance The MMA Hour

I agree with him 100 % Ive been saying this for so long now.

Every time GSP fights I say this If you dont like being on your back stop it from happening or learn how to get back up its as simple as that if the guy is a better wrestler how can you blame him for utilizing that.

Your main priority is to WIN

He's widely considered the most boring fighter in the sport for good reasons. There aren't many fighters I refuse to watch. After his last fight, he's one of them. He literally lays on people and I'm starting to get upset with the refs that aren't standing him up.
