    Whatever if you can't show up when the champs healthy you don't get your shot

    Colby just has to stay healthy

    Woodley says a lot of dumb things and he's had some tough-to-enjoy approaches to fights, but he's straight underappreciated.

    You're only saying that because he just beat a criminally overrated guy who two fights ago was a prelim nobody

    Sure, but it was Dana's given reason

    Despite it being valid or not, he probably would have been forced to go give Colby the fight if he was healthy

    They tried to force Colby into taking a title shot before he was ready, like they did to Maia and he wouldn't be bullied. So they rushed Till into this title shot when he said himself he wasn't ready yet. Makes no sense. And this card should have been in the UK.

    That's why he didn't want none of that explosiveness

    Meh I don't buy that. You beat Maia and RDA you're ready for a title shot.

    Woodley is going to make Colby crumble and quit just like Till. Bet on it.

    And now he's been stripped of his pretend belt and back to being the known only as the guy that got hit with a Werdoomerang.

    Not when you are still injured from your last fight. It's not that Colby wasn't ready for a title shot, he didn't want to fight so soon after the RDA match before he could get 100% healthy and have a proper camp. It's what the UFC did to Maia too. He said constantly that he wasn't ready.
