So why isn't Colby getting the shot if he wants it?

    Or did he turn it down for December? He'd get a few months between fights and he's the only top ranked guy available. He beat Maia 30-27 when Maia was ranked #3 and supposedly so good if you ask Woodley fans and Woodley himself -- and then Colby beats him in a clear cut unanimous decision and Woodley is saying how Colby still needs to climb the ladder lol. Woodley was just talking a few months ago how good Maia was when he beat him and now beating Maia doesn't earn a title shot? Especially considering theirs no one else available (besides Nate Diaz)

    I'd rather see him get the shot or pull Robbie from the RDA fight and let him fight Woodley instead of Nate Diaz who is 1-4 at 170 coming off a loss getting a title shot. This is embarassing for the sport.

    I'd expect Colby would jump at the shot but keep in mind he fought 2 weeks ago and had some facial lacerations in the fight. He got a 30 day standard medical suspension. He would literally only have 3-4 weeks of full contact training to be ready for Dec 30.

    However, Woodley has dismissed him repeatedly (even though Covington beat Maia far worse than Woodley did).

    Maia was good when Woodley beat him and now I guess Maia isn't good anymore - I think Woodley said some bullshit that Colby "copied his gameplan" or some shit even tho all Woodley did was stand against the cage and defend takedowns the whole fight. Colby actually chain wrestled Maia to death and clear cut 30-27 him.

    Because two boring fighters do not make for an exciting fight.

    Woodley actually said that shit?

    Maia didn't have a scratch on him after the Woodley fight. His face looked like hamburger after fighting Covington (who threw roughly 30 more strikes than Woodley did).

    He said some bullshit like "I cracked the code first" - if you remember he was saying that when he first beat Maia talking like Maia was some unbeatable fighter or some shit, I think he was trying to justify his garbage performance by talking up how good Maia is.

    Now Colby comes along and beats him down worse then Woodley did and Woodley just says I did it first and you still gotta climb the ladder and get your weight up or some shit lol. Like you said Maia took no damage aside from his eye in the Woodley fight and Colby beat him down despite having shitty striking.

    But I guess beating Maia means different things depending who you are I guess.

    Colby turned down usman last month, why would the ufc give him a title shot when he turned down the 13th ranked guy?

    Colby is a completely uninteresting title contender. Yes he beat Maia, but this is an instance of where styles make fights. Anyone who can stuff Maia's takedowns is going to look amazing against him, it's really the only skill required.
