    Sorry bros. Hendricks was the actual WW champ and anyone who wasn't blinded by hatred for his obnoxious squeaky voice chanting Nawmean knew this to be true, and Thompson just dispatched him with ease inside the first round.

    Anything less than the champ is an insult.

    Why not? Woodley hasn't fought in over a year and was soundly beat by Rory.

    If Woodley gets a title shot then it is HE who is jumping ahead of several fighters. (Maia, Thompson)

    He can't jump over Woodley because of the win streak Tyron put together over the past year. He's beat a "who's who" of the Welterweight division. Going further back, that split decision win over Kelvin Gastelum was really something, if you can remember that long ago. And he arguably deserved to beat Rory MacDonald too.

    Ellenberger was #9 at the time. Whittaker is no fucking joke ad a trophy of a win for anybody. Cote is an accomplished fighter who is a great name on his resume. Oh... and he just beat HENDRICKS. Son.

    with an actual ko over hendricks he is the most credible contender now
    woodley best win was condit on a two fight losing streak 2 years ago, he has some good wins but thompson just ko hendricks in the first round, was more active and his last loss was 4 years ago (woodley lost 3 times in that period)
    stephen deserve it more even if woodley got fucked royally by hendricks

    He KOed Johny and barely broke a sweat! Give him a title shot.

    I like what your saying but who would Lawler fight meanwhile. Or just have him wait or fight Miaia.

    That's the problem with flukey rankings and DW opening his mouth.

    Woodley did put on a nice streak that included beating Gastellum (him and Tumerov are the future of the division), messing up DHK's winning streak, beating Condit (no matter how it happened), and losing a decision McDonald. Plus I had Woodley beating Hendricks but it's not Woodley's fault the scale did it first. I do think the full diva mode he went in isn't a good look though.

    Maia - former title contender who Andersen didn't want to any piece of him on the ground. 7-2 in his last 9 including a 4 fight win streak. Losses include a FOTY candidate against Shields and Rory McDonald. Going to probably beat the last man to beat Wonderboy. And he's the best ground guy in mma period. At least top 5 (Jacare, Werdum, Shields, Palhares other 4 imo). I think he's the biggest threat to the whole division.

    Wonderboy - been on an absolute tear. Only loss has been to Matt Brown. Stopped Clements, Ellenberger, Whittaker (I would love to see a rematch @ 185), and Hendricks. Cote win is looking better and better everyday. Fan friendly style who using skills that most people wrote off (side stance/primary karate user) as being inapplicable to mma. New kid on the block.

    The only reason I say give Woodley the shot is because we heard it out of DW's mouth that he was next in line after the Hendricks's taubacle. Plus if he beats Hendricks than we're not even having this conversation. But this is the UFC and it's about money/entertainment.

    If I had the power
    Lawler vs Woodley
    Maia (if he gets the W over Brown) vs WB
    Condit vs McDonald 2

    They will probably let 4 guys leapfrog Woodley. Including Diaz.

    So much depends on several crazy variables right now.

    Lawler, when does he want to fight again? I heard he wanted some time off after his Condit War.

    Condit, is he retiring if he doesn't get his Lawler rematch? If true, he'll probably get a Lawler rematch.

    GSP, is the man coming back? If so, when? Will he take a fight before a title fight or go straight for the title?

    Diaz, the UFC has a hardon for him so he'll get whatever he wants. What does he want though? What will the UFC give him?

    Without these answers, it's hard to put a fight together for Wonderboy that isn't Woodley right now.
