    He gets a lot of hate on these boards. Many times I see threads asking why. Some people even act like disliking Woodley is racist. However, Woodley has had his chances to gain fans of the MMA community but repeatedly puts his foot (and actions) in his mouth.
    • #1 Putting on a total stinker against Kelvin Gasteullum at UFC 183, despite appearing much faster and in better shape (Gastellum missed weight barbarically). To the booing crowd, Woodley said: "People don't wanna hear it, but I wasn't looking for knockout. I don't want to finish every fight. I wanted to move around and watch my work."
    • #2 Tyron Woodley beat fan favorite Carlos Condit by TKO via injury. Woodley celebrated as Condit tore his knee. Joe Rogan asked him if that diminished his victory in any way to which Woodley responded: "No, I hurt his knee when I took him down, that is part of the process. It is a legitimate finish, people hurt their knees all the time in practice. I hurt it, he didn't hurt it."
    • #3 Tyron Woodley Accuses the UFC of Racism. He states that Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, and Nick Diaz receive special treatment that a black fighter is not capable of receiving.
    • #4 He further cements his accusations of racism by saying that Rogan praises white fighters who look like they are about to pass out. But because Woodley is black, he is presumed to have bad cardio. That is why guys like Kimbo and Dada 3000 are criticized by Rogan, but if they were white, Tyron states they would be praised instead.
    • #5 Waits 18 months without taking a fight for a Title Shot that many thought he didn't earn, especially in comparison to Wonderboy. In fact, Woodley said this after Wonderboy knocked out Johnny Hendricks: “He didn’t earn a title shot, but he put himself in position. I feel like he should fight one more fight, maybe against Rory MacDonald. Another long striker so we can see how he does with a striker who can deal with that. Then he’s ready to roll.”
    • #6 He further adds insult to injury by refusing to fight Wonderboy after winning the title despite that fact that Wonderboy did fight Rory and win. He even goes as far as to say Wonderboy hasn't done enough, despite beating Rory and Hendricks on his 7 fight winning streak. Interesting coming from the recipient of a gifted title shot.
    • In his most recent interview, Woodley states Thompson "Doesn't deserve a title shot" for falsely predicting a Lawler victory. "Now he will have to wait and take a few more fights", says Woodley. I guess he doesn't want Thompson sitting out. He would know.

    You could make lists like this for just about any fighter, and the fan favorites would have all their bullshit explained away post by post. None of this shit is an explanation for a fighter receiving the type of nastiness Tyron is getting. I'm not buying it.

    He got a title shot after sitting on the bench for over a year?

    Wonderboy, Maia were more deserving.

    I'm one of the few around here that actually DOES like T-Wood.

    He's pretty well spoken, seems like a down to earth, approachable fella. He really loves his fam, and seems like a really good father to his kids.

    And dude has crazy power in that right hand, and some nasty kicks when he lets them go.

    Yeah. That was what people hated about it. He wasn't even injured, he refused to fight!

    I don't think any of the shit out of his mouth discredits his skill. I said before the fight, make no mistake, he didn't earn that title shot but he's good enough to win.

    Woodley doesn't have a history of exciting fight. There are no moments in his career that display his heart and fighter spirit. That is what matters to fight fans. Talent, heart and will to fight. Maybe Tyron could display this as champion but his catered path to gold is not glorious.

    He also is a massive hypocrite he said he hates it when champions don't fight number 1 contenders and go for money fights. Then as soon as he gets the title he wants money fights wtf?

    thinks everyone is racist
    thinks nick diaz deserves a TS

    I like Woodley as a person. Seems like a good guy.

    As a fighter he can be great to watch but like all explosive guys can occasionally be dull and tentative.

    I don't think he's partucular unpopular on here, not compared to someone like Lombard or Hendricks or Ronda.
