Remember Conor fans bragging about how much money he makes and how fighting is a business....

    The same people who were cheering for Conor to only take money fights and avoid the 145 division are now trying to ridiculously hate on Woodley for doing the exact same thing.

    They acted like Conor was giving them a percentage of his winnings or something and it was very pathetic. They did the same thing with Bisping and gifting Hendo a pointless title shot.

    Conor vs Nate = pointless fight
    Bisping vs Heno = pointless fight

    Woodley is wanting to make his money and calling out Diaz is awesome. Woodley is playing the game.

    The problem with that is Conor created the money because he is the star. All these other chumps are begging fighters with a bigger name than they have to help pad their paycheck. If Woodley or Eddie wants a big paycheck maybe they should do something to sell a fight instead of relying on their opponent so they can have a red panty night.

    Nate was a late replacement he was supposed to fight RDA for the 155 belt.

    Conor wasn't trying to fight Nate, he was trying to fight the champ of the 155 pound division. You would have a point of Woodley was calling out bisping

    I'm fine with T Wood doing what is best for him but are you sure it is the same people? People bitch about 'pointless fights' all the time. Could just be different fans.

    Conor is the GOAT homie.
    Woodley is just another guy on the roster.

    No he didn't. The UFC let him make the money. Woodley is wanting the same treatment. Don't be hypocrite dude.

    Woodley is the guy that just knocked the fuck out of Lawler in the 1st round and is a TV analyst and philanthropist. They know who he is.

    Fair enough, but Woodley is smart enough to know he's not a draw and needs someone else to make him his money...In that sense you can't blame the guy.

    Everyone is begging to fight Conor even if its not for his belt. Nobody is begging to fight Woodley in a non title fight.

    Woodley is smart that he knows that Thompson is for sure not a money fight at all.

    Proof? Or are you just frustrated that people disagree with you on the internet?
