Strikeforce: Does a win over Andre Galvao put Tyron Woodley 'pretty close' to a title shot?

Or does the two-time All-American wrestler need a little more time under the lamp?

"I'm going to be very interested and watching [Diaz vs. Noons II]. Get through my fight [against Andre Galvao] first and foremost, but after that, yeah, I'm sitting down and I'm watching and I'm seeing what's happening because I should be pretty close. I should be pretty close to getting up in the mix. It's time to actually start looking at these opponents, how they perform with different styles, so when it's my turn, I'm well prepared."

"T-Wood" takes his undefeated record into a very tough fight against Andre Galvao this Saturday night (Oct. 9) in San Jose. Woodley tells "The Savage Dog Show" that his progress has been slow and steady by design, but that he's ready for a breakout year if and when he gets past the jiu-jitsu master this weekend. Anyone think he's ready for the top of the division? Or does he need to conquer a bigger name before jumping into deep water?
