    he will not, unless GSP miraclously gets 100% cleared by a doctor and is 100% determined to fight Woodley @ 170 pounds in a couple of weeks which is not very likely to say the least.

    I hope it is GSP.

    Lawler/RDA should get shot at winner.

    Wonderboy/Covington should be made unless RDA loses then RDA vs Covington would be great because of the Brazil angle

    If Tyron headlines UFC 219, that card will definitely do under 650K PPV buys.

    Might even be the worst selling card of the year if that happens.

    and thats a reason why a Woodley fight would not be headlining this type of high profile event in vegas, ppv and so on, unless Woodley's opponent is a ppv draw, like GSP, then it could 100% headline it.

    I wouldn't even be mad. Even though he'd surely lose.

    i'm thinking it could really be Diaz. Woodley is after the money fight all the time and i doubt he would accept a normal fight on such a short notice. Apart from Diaz i can't think what's the bigger moeny fight than this

    It'd be amazing if it was Nick Diaz, but I think it's either Tony or Colby.

    EDIT: Could it be Nate?

    depends who Tyrone headlines against and what effect the promotion prior of the event produces, and what the co-main event consists of.
    But Tyrone could in my humble opinion only headline if his opponent is someone who is a much more popular fighter and have a history of selling PPV's, like GSP or Nick Diaz,

    Why? RDA got chased out of LW then beat a couple bums on losing streaks for eliminator? Really? Should not even be top 10.

    Lawler will smash him anyway. RDA can't beat wreslers because they rob him of his TDs like 1/2 his offense. Colby would destory RDA.

    Lawler mr close in every fight barley got passed a geritric Cerrone and got KTFO easy by Tyron Souldnt even be top 5 either,

    Meanwhile a kid on great run who hospitalized #2 Maia doesnt?

    Why would that be amazing? Diaz has been in the sport for over a decade and still has the TDD of a toddler just learning how to walk.

    That would be the only saving grace for Tyron, is to fight someone like GSP or Diaz.


    Also it's Tyron, not Tyrone. He might call you racist for calling him that so be careful ;)

    Trust me I want that fight just as bad as anyone but no ones a clear contender other than lawler really and even hes a little hard to justify even if i want him to get it.

    I don't mind Covington but I know a lot of people can't stand him. This is Woodley's chance to erase those lackluster past few performances by flatlining Colby and making a lot of people happy haha. But if it's not Colby, who is it? I highly doubt GSP is turning around that quick. Nick? That would be absolutely ridiculous if Nick got a title shot.
