    Woodley recently spoke to media to promote UFC 228. In their discussion, “T-Wood” discussed possibly making big history in the future. The rumor of dispelling the welterweight championship arose.

    In turn, more divisions such as 165 and 175 pounds would be added. Woodley said he’s willing to win titles at 165, 175 and 185 pounds to make history (quotes via MMA Fighting):

    “I heard they were thinking about that. I don’t know which one I would do – I mean, I could make 165, it wouldn’t be very sexy, but I could make it.

    “And obviously 175 would be a little easier to make than 170. I make 175 and I could make 185, too. Those are three different weight classes that I could fight in and be extremely competitive in all of them.”

    The 36-year-old isn’t interested in cutting down to 170 pounds much longer. The ability to fight at a higher weight class is beginning to sound more appealing:

    “I would love to fight in a different division, you know?. I walk around at 200 pounds, only having to drop 15 pounds wouldn’t be a bad look for me at all.”

    This clown has barely been able to defend the 170lb belt, and he's talking about moving up to 185? Give me a break.

    He's actually defended his belt in a pretty dominant fashion thus far

    I'm sick of fighters referring to everything as sexy. Sexy contracts, sexy, or not sexy weight classes, sexy fuck off already

    I wanted to see Woodley knock out Bisping for 2 belts.

    Dominant fashion? The first defense was a draw, so he didn't even win. The second was a majority decision, so one of the judges thought he didn't win. The 3rd was a grinding decision. He's not exactly knocking fools out.

    A draw isn't exactly dominant.

    honestly has to be one of the most over rated and lucky champions in a long time...Eddie will always be one of the worst, but Twood, man has he milked his title run, one fight per year, squeeking by wonderboy on the first fight, turtle pace twood aint gona do jack, cant wait for him to lose his belt already, shits gone long enough.

    Last thing UFC needs is more weight classes. Honestly.

    You said he doesn't defend his belt but then went on to list his defenses. Tyron defended his belt 3 times within a year. Name a single champion in recent memory who has done that.
