    Let's say Till weighs in at 176 and misses weight, and Tyron refuses the fight. Assuming Usman makes 170, do you pull Till and make Woodley vs Usman? Or do you pull Tyron Woodley, strip him, and make the Usman vs Till fight for the vacant 170 title (which only Usman could win)?

    Pull Woodley and strip him because his opponent missed weight?

    Are you for real?

    I think TS is just into stripping dudes.

    Usman is holding his own training camp and cutting weight to be a substitute, so we’ll end up with Usman/Woodley unless the UFC is full of incompetent fools.

    Which, they’ve already proven to be on multiple occasions.

    If Till weighs in at 210 pounds, they should strip Khabib and give the 185 belt to Weidman, after stripping Bobby Knuckles, give Colby the interim belt and the strip him a second later, and then go to the White House and strip Trump of the Presidency.

    That's the only logical play here.

    Make an actual title fight and send Till to Heavyweight where he belongs.

    Yep. Woodley hasn't fought in over a year, and the UFC told him he needs to fight on this event to maintain his championship. And he's stated openly that he will fight Till regardless of missing weight.

    If Tyron refuses to fight an overweight Till, he shouldn't be rewarded by fighting another fighter that actually made weight.

    Woodley has already said he will fight Till, even if the latter misses weight

    You can't be serious.

    Lol at stripping Woodley. Sounds like someone's scared that Tyron's gunna surpass Georgie's legacy.

    If Till doesn't make weight, then Usman should fight for the belt as long as he makes 170.

    That is insane. Till misses weight and still gets to fight for Usman for the vacant title. The vacant title that Woodley gets stripped of for doing exactly what he’s supposed to by making weight?? Is that what your suggesting or is the a miscommunication here?

    In this scenario how can you possibly think Till should be rewarded while Woodley gets fucked?

    That is some bad strategy right there. You broadcast the fact that you will take the fight regardless of weight and you are dealing with a habitual weight limit abuser.

    I wonder what the buyrate will be for a strawweight title main event?

    He did it before with Kelvin. Woodley can be pain when negotiating, but he generally shows up on weight and ready to fight once he has signed.

    Tyron wouldn't surpass Georges legacy even if he had 10 prime years left in his career.
