I just feel that the majority of the tumw Woodley shares his opinion on things its usually after Dana made an initial statement. Everyone's faulting him for sharing his opinion.

Before Woodley's atatement, Dana came out and said GAP is likely to get a shot at 170 now.

Last night and some of the recent convo reminded me of another classic Masvidal split decision loss.

I didn't actually realize Woodley was on Ariel's show last Monday.. reading his comments, I can't really disagree with his motivations. His take on Maia was pretty fair and realistic, hell the Dallas fans were booing Maia for a majority of the fight. I see why Woodley wants these other opponents and I already knew Maia was probably going to get skipped again

 

“An exciting fight, something I believe could produce my first rivalry maybe, my first back-and-forth press conference, is maybe a Nick Diaz,” Woodley said. “In my opinion, he’s a lineal top-five welterweight, what he’s done for the sport, how he actually got people excited about it. He was really just himself and that became an image, and I think he can do that everyday because that’s him, so I respect him, I respect what he’s done for MMA. That’s another fight that excites me. I just don’t see beating Demian Maia really putting another notch on my belt like those two guys would.

 

“Now, granted, he’s got what, 17, 18, 19 wins in the UFC? Something ridiculous. He took Anderson Silva to a decision. He rattled off seven victories in a row. Man, how do you do that type of stuff in silence? Think about it. It’s our sport. Our sport does not allow jiu-jitsu, the building block of the UFC — it has not allowed it to be great. It’s not respected. It’s not something that everyone wants to see. That’s how he’s been able to rattle off seven victories against top opponents and not get the credit. It’s not my fault. I didn’t do it.”

 

“I’m the best welterweight in the world and I feel like Georges St-Pierre should’ve fought me,” Woodley said. “He should’ve come back (to welterweight). Fighting Bisping, I think that was the cowardly move. He’s going to fight someone who doesn’t have the ability to concuss him like I would, or Johny Hendricks would, or Robbie Lawler would. That’s why he went (up in weight).

 

“If Stephen Thompson would’ve beaten me, I guarantee that his first fight back would’ve been against Stephen Thompson, a similar karate-style fighter that he’s probably seen a million times, he’s trained with him, he doesn’t have the one-punch KO power, he’s not going to submit him, he’s not going to stop his shot. It’s the safer fight for a big payday. So with that said, I just kinda raise my eyebrows, the fact that he would go up a weight class when there’s a willing, dominant champion that wants to take you on that’s excited about the fight. It surprised me, but hey, if it’s Demian Maia first or if it’s Georges St-Pierre first, everybody’s going to get it at the end of the day and I’m just excited to be where I’m at right now.”

Btw, the UFC athletes retreat thing seemed kinda weird/interesting. Having a lot of the fighters mingle is definitely unique

 

Saw that Kobe gave some sort of speech saying fighters need to be united for their own cause

 

Also, funny to see Woodley and Maia interact after all this chatter about who will be the next #1 contender. Woodley doing his job of keeping all options open

Great fight however I kinda wish they'd build both of them up rather than have them fight. Especially considering the state of the division

Maybe they're planning to have the winner possibly be a title contender?
post #40117 of 40131
Woodley cant talk bout Gsp wanting to fight bisping when he was tryna fight him too...

And I'm sure George wouldn't have fought wonderboy, they've been close for a long time

He needs to shut up and fight maia then start calling for a big fight. He won the title then had a draw then barely won which could have gone to wonderboy or been a draw again. Win a fight convincingly then call for a money fight.

And I don't see any other contenders waiting so the timing would work as opposed to having maia wait again..

I agree.

I feel like some of these cats need to talk in the cage.

👀 Rockhold...Woodley

Depending on how clean the punch landed, taking a shot with no gloves... my God. Sound like ole girl had it coming with personal Tweets directed at Cyborg

Surprised she's still on the roster. From seeing her on tuf, she probably deserves any punch she gets. She must not care about her health if she wants problems with cyborg.

Damn phone camera guy didn't even record the punch. He was trying to circle around the group like the cameraman on avengers.
