    Cuck Thomas has always claimed that Jon and Tyron Woodley did not have a large following because of racial prejudice.

    Look at Israel and look at Colby.

    Nobody talks about kamaru but the pages have been filled with Izzy.

    Lets end this

    Also

    Anderson Silva?

    People like striking. They don't care about skin colour.

    Cuck Thomas is a retard. Look at Kobe, MJ, Lebron, Floyd, Mike Tyson, etc. Black athletes have had a huge following for a long time.

    Even Bob Sapp had a huge following despite being a garbage fighter. Rampage and Anderson were two of the most popular fighters in their prime

    I don't believe that crap Woodley was on about.

    Jon Jones success despite his many mishaps shows that race isn't an issue.

    DC is also wildly popular and is a main face with the company outside of fighting.

    I would agree with that statement.

    If Jones didn't crash his Bentley after that beer ad & stopped acting 'good Christian boy' he could have been a huge star back in the day.

    Claiming racial prejudice when a character is generally not likable is standard way to troll people. Better than saying 'yea the guys personality sucks and fans pick up on it'.

    Izzy has that striking and excitement factor because he can put out his opponent's lights at any moment. Fans love that.

    The key to being GOAT draw is being a white man in a black man’s body. Like Dwain Johnson or Will Smith.

    Otherwise you’ve got to be a lil leprechaun on a soap box to sell big

    Black strikers have never had trouble becoming popular. If Woodley was more consistently at finishing fights in an exciting manner he would be popular, too.
