    Colby is more marketable because of the trash talk and beef with Woodley. I'm pretty sure Dana is only talking up Usman because Colby is being difficult to work with.

    Woodley is ducking the man who chose surgery over a title fight?

    If you think what WME is doing is "belt abuse" you should check out how WBA manages their belts

    Take the real belt away from Tyron and make Usman vs Covington for the belt.

    I don't think you understand the meaning of ducking, if Dana wants to switch out Colby for Usman how is Woodley ducking..?

    Woodley fought 3 months ago. The guy has multiple title defenses under his belt. He was ready to fight Colby but Colby bitched out. Woodley willingly accepted Darren even tho he was training for Colby, Why isn't the UFC and fans giving him the benefit of a doubt here?

    He was willing to fight an easy opponent for $$$ when injured at a time that the UFC was looking for a main event. To fight a real contender in his division, he needed to be in better shape.

    This is the exact same calculation DC made when he accepted the Lewis fight on short notice and why DC said that he wouldn't have rematched Stipe under the same circumstances.

    Ducking is not the right word. He's delaying these fights for as long as possible so he hold the belt for as long as he can, and heal up from paper cuts. He waited 5 months to have surgary after the Maia fight. He didn't have to get surgary. It was a choice.

    Whatever, just cut the whole roster including Dana and keep Penn, Cerrone, Gaethje, Lawler, Lil Nog and Shogun.

    Willingness to fight an easy fight but not a harder fight against someone who is actually in your division is in fact ducking. Especially when he's the top guy.

    I'd LOVE to hear why it isn't

    Is Woodley just hoping Colby will fight someone else and lose? Maybe he's worried about all the trash talk

    With some injuries, surgery isn't always the first course of action recommended by a doctor.

    It may have been a recommendation and choice to go ahead with surgery, after first attempting to rehab the injury without surgery didn't fully heal it.
