I see a lot of people saying Woodleys scared and ducking the true contenders. Woodleys 34 years old and has a very limited window to make some decent bank, as Champion his earning potential skyrockets assuming as Champion he gets a taste of the PPV share which I have a strong feeling he would given how long he sat on the sidelines for this title shot. "It’s an eight-fight deal," Woodley told MMA Fighting on Tuesday. "I had a four-fight deal, but I thought they had to make it worth my while. I’m taking the risk here." Previously two UFC PPV contracts have been publically released from court documents. Randy Couture in 2006 fought Tim Sylvia for the HW title making 250k in base pay and a further 936k in PPV revenue for a total of more than $1million on a 500k selling PPV card 10 years ago. http://articles.latimes.com/2007/oct/31/sports/sp-ufc31 Rampage Jackson made $15million in five years 1.4million per fight. http://www.cagedinsider.com/ufc/dana-white-15/ Woodley in his last fight before Robbie made 74k base with 65k win bonus for 139k total. In his title shot he made 270k base + 70k win bonus for 240k If he fights Diaz or GSP and gets a slice of PPV he could be looking at north of $1million If he fights Wonderboy he's gonna sell a heck of a lot less PPV's and probably get KO'd and take a paycut http://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/fighters/tyron-woodley-t-wood As a comparison Hendricks made 150k base in his title defence but now he's lost the belt and getting beat up by Gastelum no one cares about him and he's taken a paycut to 80k base. http://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/fighters/johny-hendricks My point is this is Woodleys only chance to be fighting for million dollar+ purses so he should make the most of it while he can because if he loses to Wonderboy everyone's gonna write him off as never being any good and he'll be fighting for 100k again. "At the end of the day, I'm the one who's in control of my bank account," Woodley said. "I'm the one who's in control of my four kids, my wife, the house that I want to pay off this year. These things are realistic goals that are within reach with the right fight. So, I don't have to explain to them. I don't go to their house and say hey, I don't think you should get this promotion because Johnny, your coworker, deserves it more than you. I'm going to go tell your boss that I'm going to get this other guy the promotion. I don't do that."
