Competing in the co-main event on a UFC 171 fight card that is headlined by a fight between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler for the vacant welterweight championship, Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley are positioned well to earn a shot at the belt on Saturday.
After a loss to Hendricks in a Fight of the Night outing, Condit rebounded by stopping Martin Kampmann with strikes. Should Hendricks claim the title this weekend, Condit could still be an interesting challenger for him, as plenty would be interested in seeing a repeat of their UFC 158 meeting.
Woodley's resume is lacking a bit for a fighter who is hoping to earn a shot at UFC gold. He's only one fight removed from a loss to Jake Shields, but if he can follow up a knockout win over Josh Koscheck with an impressive victory over Condit at UFC 171, he could make the statement he needs to jump ahead of other contenders who may be more deserving.
As this potential title-shot eliminator approaches, here is a closer look at how Condit and Woodley match up in all areas.
