    Condit comes off ONE win to 13th place Thiago Alves and has a title shot given to him. Before that, the last fight he had was over a year ago when he lost to Woodley. Whereas Woodley has won 4/5 of his last fights, beating Condit, and only losing to Rory MacDougal. It makes no sense to put Condit ahead of Woodley. I like Condit, and I'm glad to see him back, but this isn't fair for Woodley when he's so humble and professional..

    It's all about the money money


    Woodley doesn't sell it
    Condit sells it

    Woodley deserves it over Condit agreed, but i would rather watch Lawler x Condit so i really don't give a shit.

    4 of his last 5... Also 5 of his last 8.

    I personally don't think anyone at welterweight really DESERVES a title shot at the moment, so either way, it doesn't matter. If Tyron beats Hendricks he'll be the next challenger.

    Lawler would butcher him anyways with his new super TDD and he'll get his wish of the Hendricks fight

    In Tyron's last 3, he was outclassed by Rory, KO'd a guy who has the worst strike D in the upper welters, then put everyone to sleep sparring Gastelum. Not a good sell.

    Condit almost finished the greatest welterweight and is a former interim holder.

    Woodley Hendricks both beat him. It's the most unwarranted title shot since Diaz. Don't matter gonna be sweet fight. War Lawler.

    Woodley's win over Condit wasn't exactly legit.

    That being said Lawler/Woodley (assuming they'd even fight each other) and Condit/Hendricks 2 probably would have made more sense. But I can't complain about Lawler/Condit.

    I'll take Condit fighting for the title over Woodley. His dismal performance against Rory is still fresh in my memory.

    Condit's exciting when he's not fighting Nick Diaz, and Woodley is kinda boring plus he ducked Hector.

    if you look at it in isolation, Woodley got shafted.

    When you look at the bigger picture, Lawler-Condit and Hendricks-Woodley are the most interesting pairings, IMHO.

    1. Condit deserved the decision against Hendricks. Never in my life have I seen someone do so much work from the bottom, the person on the top do so little, and judges ignore that fact so much (Mousasi vs. Lawal a close second).

    2. Injured in the Woodley fight. Condit is a technical striker and it takes him a little while to get going and find his distance. Woodley is a power striker and is pretty much who he is right out of the gate. I feel pretty confident Condit would have turned that fight around, but whether he would or not, he got injured the way he did and he didn't get a fair shake in it. Let's also not ignore the fact that Condit is the type of fighter that is built for championship fights. Woodley doesn't have much of a chance against Robbie over 5 rounds, but Condit does.

    Thats the fight and promotions game, sometimes the company picks the guy that will give the better fight.
