    I thought Woodley and Askren don't want to fight each other?

    Wouldn't surprise me if Askren relinquishes the Interim title when Woodley is recovered so Woodley can vs Colby without Woodley been forced to face Usman.

    If Woodley vs. Askern won't happen then does Askern vacate the interim belt if he wins the fight? That seems like a potentially strange situation.

    If Askren and Woodley are not gonna fight each other, why are they in the dame weight class? I think Askren will probably lose more than win in ufc anyway so the situation will sort itself out hopefully.

    This is gonna be Dana's ultimate revenge against Woodley. Bringing in Tyron's friend of half a lifetime, blinding Ben with lots of zeros and young, tight bodied undercard WMMA fighters and promises of world titles and GSP superfights... Dana is out to destroy Woodley, and he intends to hit him where it hurts, and make it as personal as he can. He only brought in Askren to set in motion his master plan, which was birthed from a late night phone conversation with his close friend, Frank Fertitta.

    "I know, Dana. Life has been rough for you since we closed the deal and left. Conor committing acts of terrorism, Jon Jones and PEDs, Jon Jones and PEDs again, Woodley never wants to fight... Hey, Woodley doesn't really even sell. Let's ruin his career. No...not his career, his LIFE. Here's how: Remember that wrestler who fought in Bellator? The one with the silly fucking hair? He wrestled in college with Woodley. They've been friends since they were kids. That guy would sell his soul to fight in the UFC. Make him do it, Dana. Promise him a title shot, a few nights with Paige, and hold that GSP fight over his head and never give it to him. He'll lay and pray Woodley for hours for that GSP fight. Promise it to him, only if he doublecrosses his friend. It'll work, and you'll start feeling like yourself again, bro."

    And now, here we are.

    they'll prob do it if they have nobody else because they'll want a title fight on the card. they know full well askren wont fight woodley so him in a interim title fight is a joke to begin with (on top of that he hasnt even fought in the ufc yet and gotten a W). if they were to do this it is pretty much just a business decision to try to make more money off the 233 card. if askren wins hes gonna give up the belt

    Remember when Rashad and Jones were friends and then they werent? Anything can happen in the UFC. When it comes to titles, you can bet your ass guys are gonna take their shot.

    I thought woodley was fighting colby. Does dana really think creating another interim belt is going to get woodley to accept fights lol

    Shouldn't even compete in the weight class if he's not willing to accept the fact he might have to fight Woodley. Friends or not, it's sport not a playground.

    Or if he's adamant then he shouldn't be allowed to fight for a title, paper or not.

    Not at all the same situation

    Tyron and Askren have been close friends since college, have been to each others weddings and know each others wives and children. Bones and Hashad didn't even know each other until they were both in Jackson's. It's not at all a situation of a prospect coming to a gym with a former champion either .Woodley and Askren are the same age range

    Its a much more similar situation to DC and Cain and those 2 are never gonna fight each other for money
