That was a quick fight. Tyron Woodley, according to Frank Shamrock, is the first true Strikeforce fighter to have come up through the Challengers series and looked so good doing it. He struggled a bit in his last fight but that was not the case in this one. From the start, Galvao looked uncomfortable standing with Woodley. I thought the superior wrestling game would mean Woodley would be able to keep the fight standing and earn him the win and that's pretty much what happened.

Galvao would shoot in and Woodley would sprawl and make him pay for it with plenty of shots. Then he would back up and let Galvao stand back up. Rinse and repeat. The shots weren't hard enough to put Galvao out but after enough of them, he couldn't get his legs underneath him and Josh Rosenthal correctly called a stop to it. MMA just might not be something Galvao can ever have success at but Woodley looked great.

Not a bad start to the night.
