Is Woodley really the champ? Or Wonderboy?

    Wonderboy has actually earned his way through the division, and he has never ducked anyone to such a strong degree before like Woodley has in the past (Lombard). Woodley gets a title shot by Condit having a freak injury in their fight early on, Gastleum going to the hospital before the fight on bad weight cut and barely still beats him, and a DQ by Big Rigg.

    Wonderboy actually fights Big Rigg and massacres him, and then picks apart Rory Macdonald.

    Wonderboy is calling Woodley to the mat right now, while Woodley is ducking him now.

    Who is the real champ? I'd say Wonderboy especially since I felt that Condit actually beat Lawler.

    Woodley's victory over Lawler was very impressive and he deserves credit there, but he isn't acting like a champ. He doesn't have the confidence in himself to be that guy. Wonderboy sure as hell does. Looking at their strength of victories, I'd say that Wonderboy is a champ with all things considered.

    He beat the champ so he is the champ.
    Deserving more means nothing.

    Woodley holds the belt
    but you raise good points
    UFC needs to set Woodley straight
    and Wonderboy should fight for the belt
    (unless GSP sneaks in there)

    Belt is nothing but a prop to me and you have it based on one guy you beat. The idea of it sometimes is very misleading.

    The champ is supposed to be the best guy. No one hardly thinks that way about Wood. And when even he himself is constantly doubting himself against multiple guys in the division then how do we really look at him as a true champion over a guy like Wonderboy or Condit?

    Wonderboy will get his shot and win or fail. Till then Woodley is the champ.
    Don't like him or the airhorn of a mom he brings, but it is what it is.

    Prop or not, your boy aint the champ yet.

    Woodley is the champ, Wonderboy is the #1 and best fighter in the division.

    Being the champ doesn't make you the best fighter in the division in a sport where title shots are granted based on popularity and not merit.

    Wonderboys destruction of Hendricks and Rory is far more impressive than anything Woodley has done.

    Same thing with MW. Bisping isn't the best fighter at MW.

    Wonderboy is champion de facto.
    Woodley is champion de jure.

    Wonderboy is the Welterweight champion the same way Cantonese is the language of Hong Kong.
    Woodley is the Welterweight champion the same way Mandarin is the language of Hong Kong.

    Wonderboy is the Welterweight champion the same way marijuana is practically legal in the Netherlands.
    Woodley is the Welterweight champion the same way marijuana is technically illegal in the Netherlands.

    Nice win over a guy who should have lost 2 of his last 3.

    People talk about post USADA Hendricks to discredit Wonderboys win over him, but there is way more evidence Robbie was on the sauce prior to USADA and likely coming off of it than there is Hendricks.
