    Carlos Condit lost to Tyron Woodley march 2014. He was injured in that fight and out almost a year as his next fight would be against Thiago Alves May 2015. Carlos would beat Thiago Alves and with that one win over Thiago, Carlos Condit got a title shot against Lawler. I repeat, Carlos Condit got a title shot against Lawler for a win over Thiago Alves. I'm just curious why there weren't any complaints about Carlos Condit's title shot, his was way more undeserved than Woodley's.

    & if it is about what fighters deserve the title shot, for those of you who are campaigning for Wonderboy's deserved title shot (Which I can agree with), where were you guys when the unpopular LHW Ryan Bader had a 5 fight LHW win streak over (Perrosh, Calvacante, OSP, Davis, Evans)?

    So wait a minute beating a good fighter that has always been in the top ten is a step down from Woodley coming off a split he should have lost to fringe top 15?

    You think beating today's Alves is better than beating Stun Gun and Gastelum?

    I guess you missed the part where I said he lost the Gastelum fight. Also Condit ahnilated Stun Bum.

    Pretty sure many said Condit's shot wasn't really deserved when it was first announced, by the time the fight arrived people were just excited about the fight.

    Competing Bader's wins to what Wonderboy has done is laughable.

    Woodley won a mediocre decision over a dude who had about as bad of weight cut as you could have, lost to Rory before that in a very uninspiring performance. Very weak resume.

    I watched the fight and thought he lost. 2 rounds were close I had Gastelum winning the first by aggression. Woodley won the second and Gastelum dominated the third.

    Why does it matter whether Woodley "deserved" it or not? He won the title by knockout.

    I swear, we haven't seen this level of universal butthurt on the forums in a long time. Woodley is the supreme salt bringer.

    I don't recall complaints about Condit's title shot. Feel free to show me all these complaint threads, because I don't remember them. I didn't complain about NBK VS Lawler though since I liked the matchup.

    Not comparing Bader's wins to Wonderboy's. Bader's wins should be compared to other LHWs. At the time, he was deserving of a title shot based off of wins. But the UFC has never been about who deserves what, always been about the $$$.

    We can say we know how bad Gastelum's weight cut was. We simply don't know. He didn't even make weight. & a win over Gastelum and Stun Gun was still more deserving than a win over today's Alves. & again, there weren't many complaints about that title shot.

    Because at the time there wasn't any other contenders. Wonderboy and Maia deserved it more than woodley.

    Just because you think it doesn't make it true. T-Wood has the W in the record books over Gastelum. Don't remember it being controversial either. Also T-Wood beat Condit.

    There was complaining. Don't act like there wasn't just because you're grasping at straws for your dumb agenda-fueled SJW thread.
