    They havent even fought a single title defense yet they so picky.

    Neither of them has paid their dues for money fights IMO.

    People are going to make all sorts of tired excuses for Conor and Bisping, even though IT IS THE SAME THING they are doing. They are passing over contenders to try getting money fights. PERIOD!

    With the Bisping situation, its more about Hendo than Bisping. Id say Hendo paid his due to pick out his last fight.

    People keep saying this shit like McGregor didn't volunteer to go fight the champion a weight class higher, which no one else ever does.

    When you're responsible for over a million PPVs and are the biggest star in the sport you sure as hell get some special treatment. When you're, well, Tyron Woodley, you don't.

    conor IS the money fight, he created that himself. he went 7-0 in his divison including back to back KOs of the consensus #1 and #2 (one of which has been outed as a hgh cheat), he then challenged the champion in a higher weight class. earned? yes. respectable? yes.

    duckley got utterly DOMINATED and humiliated by rory macdonald, handed a controversial split decision over kelvin gastelum, sat on the sidelindes for almost 2 years and then beat a shot robbie who arguably lost 2 of his last 3 fights. before winning the belt he said wonderboy needed to beat macdonald to be considered the #1 contender. wonderboy did. now duckley claims wonderboy needs to fight lawler, while he himself is campaigning to fight retired has-beens, one of which has literally not won a fight in 5 years. earned? absolutely not. respectable? kill me

    I don't care who they fight next, if they're really the best they'll keep their belt long enough to defend against all the top contenders and if they don't then they were never the rightful champ in the first place so whatever, just let them bang
    and it will sort itself out.

    well if mcgregor can, there should be absolutely no reason what so ever as for why woodley can not.

    Anyone can choose whoever they want. It is the UFC that makes the bout agreements. And it is the fans that generate interest. I wouldn't hate the fighters for it.

    Until we get the Ali act any fight can be made anytime. But we miss out on some fan favourite fights by default.

    Fast finishes are what every person, even GSP, have always aimed for.

    McGregor, Woodley, and Bisping all have something in common: They all beat the champion by KO or TKO.

    Fast finishes are the best scores you can achieve whether by submission or KO.

    These gentlemen have DEFINITELY paid their dues by doing what every fan and contender want to see; the best possible ways to finish someone.

    LOL comparing Wouldntly aka Ty-run to Conor is like comparing a $400 a night louge singer at a casino to justin beeber

    So one KO and you should be able to fight whoever you want?

    Conor I get because he is a big draw, but I don't see why they would give Woodley any kind of power. I would think they would just be like "Fight Wonderboy or we let Wonderboy fight someone for the vacant title."

    rankings don't matter

    so they should be able to fight whatever fight gives them them the most amount of $$$ while being champ.

    once they lose the belt, it's back to making low to medium UFC fighter wages.

    Conor should ONLY have had the option to fight the winner of Aldo vs Edgar after that novelty one off fight with Diaz. Woodley should only have one option and that's to go get his brain shut off promptly by Wonderboy.

    McGregor himself is the money fight.
