For quite a while now, TENGRIDOME served as a platform for exploration of fight analysis from a "bird's eye" perspective: what it is, how to do it, and how to communicate it. Much of what Iggy and his guests do on any given episode can be called "meta-analysis". Well now is as good time as any to test some of the postulates explored and explained in the previous episodes, and use the established methodology to evaluate and analyse a specific case study. This is "Solving a Problem", and today's case study is Tyron Woodley. Tyron Woodley and his career have been discussed many times before by other analysts and outlets but it always felt like all these disparate viewpoints lacked completeness: the evaluations were of either a purely statistical nature — highly dependent on limited and at times inaccurate data, and thus of questionable overall validity — or a purely narrative one, highly subjective and dependent on the analyst's historical understanding of combat sports, theoretical knowledge and practical know-how — all of which are bound to be affected by so many variables listing them all merits an entire discussion in itself. This discussion seeks to paint a fuller picture, and create a more complete and comprehensive evaluation of a fighter's career and skills using all of the above described sources of knowledge and analytical methods, and hopefully it will provide an illustrative example of the Fight Site's combat sports analysis methodology.
