    Just a thought. With his inflammatory comments towards fans of mma, acting entitled, playing the race card and downplaying Wonderboy's achievements, it makes me wonder if he's realised he can't gain fans, so he's just going to do enough to turn people against him. That way, we'll still tune into his fights, but only for the chance of watching him lose the belt.

    If so, he's being subtle enough about it that people genuinely think he's a right prick which is actually pretty clever.

    Or, you know, maybe he is just that deluded.

    Woodley is turning heel because that is the proper way to run.

    Pivot on ball, turn heel.

    i think he is just trying to get attention, and plus hes also prob annoyed w peoples comments - so its natural - he has time now to market himself however he wants, he should use it - who knows what happens after 1-2 fights

    No, agression is just a side effect of his supplementation(vitamin type of things)

    "Turning heel" = "He knocked out the fighter I wanted to win"

    Woodley doesn't give a shit what we think.

    it's all water off his back.

    I don't think so. I think that he is just suffering from a case of rustled jimmies.

    He's not smart enough to be doing that. Simply ducking, just like he ducked Lombard.

    I think journalists like Ariel and Luke Thomas exploit his race for click bait articles and unfortunately T-Wood buys into the bullshit and is pissed.

    I think he's a smart fighter, but he's not a smart person. I highly doubt he is smart enough to do that. I really think that is just how he is.

    I think the popularity of Lawler is a lot of it, yeah.

    If Hendricks had been the Champion, and Tyron knocked him out just like that the same way, a lot more people would be happy about it right now, praising Tyron and thanking him.

    Instead, he knocked out one of the most beloved current Champions.

    Robbie Lawler is to the Just Bleed God as Ronald McDonald is to McDonald's.
