    Also there is a difference between greater and better

    GSP and even Hughes are greater that Woodley

    But Woodley would be a favor over either prime for prime

    I tend to agree, but I hope to see that fight happens.
    And both are in their prime or very close to it, so it makes even more sense.

    do you like to get insulted???? Woodley is the worst champion in WW history, in his next fight against the winner of RDA vs Colby will get his retirement ticket. Woodley against Hughes or GSP in their prime, would have lasted less than a fart in a box

    I honestly don’t see how Woodley would be a favorite over prime GSP. When Woodley first won the belt it was easier to believe his mystique, but now over three championship fights we’ve seen what his skill set really has to offer, and it’s nothing GSP couldn’t deal with. Woodley would fight the same way he did against Maia, just focused on stopping takedowns the entire fight, and after round 2 GSP would adjust to that and capatilize on it and outstrike Woodley, badly, because it’s easy to outstrike someone if they are only concentrated on stopping your takedown. Just like how Khabib was able to brutalize AI’s face with strikes, even though AI is a much better striker than him.

    Except that Rory took him to the school... And also an old Nate Marquardt brutalized him Big Time at SF.

    Woodley is one of the greatest fighters in the modern era of MMA who has defended the WW belt more regularly than other UFC champs and who speaks against the racism in MMA but of course the majority of the MMA community will be racist towards him via hiding behind the let's spam sarcastic remarks on social media and Youtube videos of everything being racist in order to insult him more.

    Some throw in actual racist remarks in there and try to slide it in as part of the sarcasm.

    The UFC and dudes are hurt by their great white hopes losing. Hurt by Rashad and Rampage/Chuck, Wonderboy/Woodley twice, Nunes/Shevchenko twice and just recently Cyborg/ Holm.

    Shutting down Maia's BJJ ability with supreme TDD just made it even worse.

    Clinging onto the only white hope who actually got a UD over Woodley in Rory MacDonald or reaching even further with the roided Nate Marquardt fight earlier in Woodley's career.

    This is part of the racism that Woodley is talking about which was confirmed even more so when an MMA podcast lead by former UFC HW Brandon Schuab made a racial twitter post about how the Fox Panel had just black people only.

    Justice prevailed though when one of the UFC Fox panellists, legendary MMA veteran Yves Edwards spoke out well against Brandon Schaub and made him apologize for that blatant racist remark on twitter.

    Also another example of justice prevailing is when Starbucks got exposed for racial profiling all because 2 African Americans waited for a friend prior to ordering coffee.

    Subtle and insidious, holding minorities to different and higher standards just so they can shit on.

    Not conforming to racist stereotypes, like the Mandingo fighter or the "thug" or the overthe top arrogant "baller" just to sell fights.

    Respect to Woodley for speaking out well against racism in the MMA community and the UFC and for not conform to one of those racial stereotypes and against racial profiling by Starbucks.

    He is on the list of greatest he defended the title multiple times and when he is done he will probably have another few. But your talking as far as who beats who, but that is never a fair comparison MMA evolved the WW Division of today kills the generation before but thats just natural.

    Yep, Along time ago... again, that was against an old UFC veteran when Tyron was even younger.

    Bottom line, when a fighter loses a fight like he did against Marquardt and Rory you will never get the title of the "Best WW ever" ... Sorry.
