    Let's face it, time is not on Robbie's side. man's on the wrong side of 30 and has been through some wars, does he have another title run in him, or was this past 2 years his last wad

    If Woodley ducks the #1 Contender in Wonderboy and takes the Nick Diaz fight, all Robbie would have to do is step up and beat Wonderboy for a TS.

    Robbie is still top 5

    He definitely is not done yet. Not sure if he wins the title again but I guarantee more violence

    I don't really see many favorable fights for him, Woodley was the easiest fight on paper. Wonderboy and Nick would both put him down

    I think he does
    some guys can compete at the top in to their late 30's
    I think he just got caught
    he looked awesome against Rory

    It is an uphill climb for sure. WW is a shark tank. Stringing wins together against the elite of the division is not going to be easy.

    Robbie needs to focus on getting big money fights like Diaz and not so much the title

    Thats how I feel about it

    Except Robbie is a true fighter, and not a money hungry groupie.

    He might fight for the title again, if he holds the strap again is another. His legacy is already sealed anyway, couldn't be happier for him.

    Well I thought he was done years ago. I won't count him out a second time, he's still a warrior. One punch doesn't change that.

    I mean the guy lost this fight but looks to me like he took less damage and years off his life than he did in his recent victories. If the guy wants to fight hell yeah I wanna watch.

    I can't be the only one to think he looked much smaller in that fight than he's previously looked, which makes no sense for it to have been a choice since Woodley is one of the most ripped guys in the sport. Not saying he was on something but..

    Still top 5? He lost the belt less than 5 days ago, he's number 2 until he loses.

    The first thing I said when he lost was, I feel sorry for whomever faces him next. He's far from done and with or without those wars, that tbomb puts him on his ass anytime.

    How about his heart and recovery though? Dude got back to his feet after getting mauled. If he were a boxer, he might have just barely missed the 10 count.

    Yeah he looked smaller to me too. They mentioned him taking more of a break since he had been in the recent wars combined with getting older could be the reason or another reason or could have just been another guy that stopped roiding because of usada.

    I would guess he retains his belt. I am guessing Woodley's tests come back sketchy.
