    Colby is going to put an end to Woodley and WW goat discussions.

    3 more defenses helps his cause. Colby is very very good. Till is dangerous for him. Usman poses twood zero threats. Beat those 3 and get a marquee win over whittaker and hes better than the canadian fella

    Let's see him come close to GSP's title defenses (9) or his top 5 wins (10+) before we put his name in the discussion

    It's possible, but Woodley is getting older.

    That should about do it. But IDK, it seems like Tyrone is trying to Segway out of getting beat up for a living to a career outside of the cage.

    Well considering GSP is the MMA GOAT I'd say never.

    He's getting close to being a top-five WW, if you really stop and look at it. GSP and Hughes are one and two without a doubt.

    Lawler is typically regarded as 3, but he fought some 19 times at MW so that leaves his early and late career in the UFC as a WW. He had a solid run although his decision wins over Johny and Condit were questionable.

    Then we have other guys like Johny, Condit, Shields, Miletich, and Sakurai. Now that I think about it, I think I do have Woodley in my top five all-time at WW. Rory's still young but arguably a top ten all-time WW.

    He's #3 behind GSP and Hughes, and I think he can pass Hughes with a few more title defenses. I don't think passing GSP is very possible unless he suddenly starts blasting challengers at a Prime Ronda-like pace.

    Even the fact that people aren't saying what he needs to get into the contention, shows that many are biased with their hatred
