    Fuck this, Woodley fights often and defends.
    This is more than a lot of champions are doing these day.

    If he is the paper Champ, then Conor is worthless compared to the paper.
    Before you judge Woodley, I would like to hear your opinion about both Conor and Bispring, pls.

    Woodley had defends his title against top contender like Maia and Stephen ( Boring to the fans, but he did a very good job) so I won't say he is a paper Champ.

    You don't change the definition of something, because you are not cerebral enough to to figure out what to call it
    lol

    Nobody rational can say Tyron Woodley is a paper champion. At least, nobody who respects the sport.

    To be the man, you gotta beat the man. And Woodley did that when he knocked out Robbie Lawler.

    Sure, you might think Stephen Thompson should've got the nod the second time. I do. But, that's opinion and the judges decision stands. And that has to be respected (even if we disagree with the official verdict).

    Woodley has now defended the title he won vs. Lawler vs. Thompson and Demian Maia. While not always spectacular, he impressed the judges, and at the end of the night, that matters.

    TLDR: TS doesn't know what the term "paper champion" means.

    Your definition is obviously targeted towards Woodley.

    If Rory became champ you would say he was a paper champ cause he lost to Lawler twice and dominated in round 1 by Maia.

    Lawler you would say really lost to Condit. And KTFO by Woodley.

    Wonderboy you would say got dropped by Woodley like 5 times in two fights.

    Maia you would say lost to Rory and got destroyed by Woodley.

    Yet you choose to say that Woodley is a paper champion because he:

    Got dominated by Rory - true but Rory lost his title fight vs Lawler (with another previous loss to Lawler) & #1 contender fight vs Wonderboy. He has no claim to being the champion.

    Lost to Wonderboy twice in your eyes - Woodley was clearly the better fighter in the first Wonderboy fight and realistically the new scoring system is a relatively clear 47-46 for Woodley.

    Loses to Maia 50% of the time - this 100% nullifies your first point. You can't say that Woodley can't beat Rory cause he got his ass kicked then say Maia beats Woodley 50% of the time when Woodley completely shut down Maia who went 0-23 in takedowns and left no rational person thinking he could have any real success against Woodley if Woodley fights smart.

    This is some hateraid.

    And so is Conor. At least Woodley actually defended his title.

    He is lucky Rory is gone for sure; but Rory can't beat Wonderboy and maybe can't beat Robbie.

    Woodley isn't some weight class GOAT like Jones and Mighty Mouse but with a lot of the talent in Bellator; the UFC isn't left with anyone that can beat him except Wonderboy and I can't picture them making that 3rd fight again.

    Lucky but not a paperchamp. He is legit
