"I like them both. Condit's a great guy, but I've known Woodley since my sophomore year in college. Great guy. I like the guy, I like his family, so, I got to go with, I'm sorry, Condit, but I pull for the wrestlers and I pull for Tyrone because I've known him for so long. I just know it's going to be a great fight. When does Condit ever bring a boring fight? Hey, If Condit wins I'd be excited, because I know it's going to be a battle. And if Tyrone wins, then it would be okay, because I get to fight somebody new and someone I've known for a long time."
--They're a tight bunch, those former collegiate wrestlers. During his recent appearance on The MMA Hour, Johny Hendricks said he's picking Tyron Woodley to beat Carlos Condit when the two talented welterweights collide in the co-main event of UFC 171 on Mar. 15, 2014 in Dallas, Texas. The winner will likely face the new Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champ, who will be crowned in the main event of the evening as Hendricks battles Robbie Lawler for the vacant 170-pound title. "Bigg Rigg" has already defeated Condit once before, besting "The Natural Born Killer" at UFC 158 last March in a "Fight of the Night" war that went the distance. And should both Hendricks and Condit prove victorious in "Big D," fight fans may have the chance to see another five rounds of action between them, this time for the welterweight title. But according to Johny, his buddy Woodley might have something to say about that. And I'm sure Lawler will look to prevent that, as well.
