... but if you were in his shoes, you'd have done the same thing, if not worse. Throughout his title reign, Tyron Woodley has consistenty been a promoter's nightmare, for the following reasons: 1) He is unable to sell PPV's or generate interests in his fights. UFC 228 is expected to have abysmal numbers, and the prelims to Tyron's PPV did the lowest number of viewership in the past 12 months. 2) He has been involved in two of the most boring title fights in the history of the UFC. Captain Obvious will point out that these matches' pace were dictated by Maia and Wonderboy (the 2nd fight), and that it's not really Woodley's fault. However, it takes two to tango, and Tyron played a major part in those shitshows. 3) He always plays the victim card Nobody likes a perpetual victim. There's always someone out there conspiring against Tyron Woodley. The big man is out there to get him. The corporation is out there to get him. The fans are out there to get him. It never crosses his mind, that maybe it's his own fault that he's not the big star and PPV slayer that he aspires to be. Adopting this persona in combat sports is like shooting yourself in the foot. In Tyron's own words: "Is it because my skin's brown that I don't get a fair chance ?" (timestamped) ... which brings us to the next, and final point: 4) The race baiting Tyron Woodley has been consistently pulling the race card whenever he's in a tight spot, for short term gain, in order to get himself African American fans and become a cultural hero. What he does not realize, that in the process, he's alienating fans from all other races. Is it really a good idea to keep racebaiting against the target group who mainly buys your PPV's ? Moreover, we are all human. If I was a promoter, and a fighter keeps digging at my race, would I really be enthusiastic to promote the fighter ? It's like, this whole thing with Woodley is becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. === All in all, what I wanted to address is that people demonize Dana White for his attitude towards Tyron. Now Dana is a grade A asshole, but when it comes to his shenanigans with Tyron Woodley, I believe that his resentment towards The Chosen One is justified.
