    He didn't pull out of the Woodley fight, he declined to take a fight three months after his fight with RDA and wanted until the end of the year, git nasal surgery. Very lame move by the UFC overeall.

    The lame move was creating a interim belt in the first place. Just made no sense.

    Yeah, the interim belt was terrible in retrospect, but the UFC comitted to it, and this is an unfair ground to erase it on.

    Lame move by the UFC? Dude spends months trash talking Woodley than he back outs like a coward. Dude was taking about how he wanted more time to build the fight. What?

    Just a shit show, but the UFC knows no one will rally around Colby on this so they don’t give a shit.

    He wanted to fight Woodley at the end of the year at MSG. That's still a fairly quick turnaround. It's completely unreasonable to expect someone to take two title fights within three months.

    He still gets to keep the shiny belt to hang on his wall until he wins the real one

    You have to agree to a fight to pull out, Colby just wanted a few months later. Colby had some health issues after his fight with RDA, he wanted more than three months. That is a completely reasonable expectation. If the UFC had wanted Woodley to fight so soon after, they shouldn't have made the interim belt. Given that they did, stripping Colby on the basis of not being able to meet a super aggressive turnaround schedule is unreasonable.

    Dude, we get you dont like Colby, but dam.

    Colby just fought and needed some time to heal. They tried to get him to sign a bout less than 30 days from a 5rd fight. It's not unreasonable to ask for a few months to heal.

    He didn't back out of anything.

    He didnt say shit about health issues. He said he wants to build the fight up. Dude has a chicken heart. Cant believe anyone would defend this coward. upload_2018-8-16_18-15-2.png

    Why are they trying to rush a camp?” Covington said (via Sherdog.com). “This fight needs a build-up, man. It needs a 12-week promotional build-up. Let me get out there and show that I can promote, and I can market fights and sell fights. Because nobody’s selling fights like me. I know how to do that now.

    Thats what im saying lol. He wanted time to trash talk lol. Never heard something so stupid in my life. The fact that people are defending him is mind blowing. First of all he talk shit to Werdum and ran for his life and called 911. Thats a chicken heart if i ever heard one.

    They probably assumed that his trash talking would turn him into a draw and therefore created the interim belt. Then they realized that he can't sell PPVs and is just a boring wrestler, so they just waited for a convenient opportunity to brush him aside.
