    And it's all about the game and how you play it. It's all about control and if you can take it.

    All publicity is not good publicity.

    The hardcores don't make a difference in ppv buys. The casuals have still no idea who Tyrun is (because casuals are racist probably).

    I dont think this kind of publicity was his intention, but i guess it worked out in a way even though he has to face Wonderboy

    Sherbros are a small group made up of a large percentage of cheap asses that dont even order events. Needs to get on ESPN. Needs to have a highly controversial with Landsberg and spew mostly nonsense for 15 minutes. Seemed to work well for Chael.

    I doubt this was the attention he was looking for.

    A lot of threads about how he's ducking competition and trying to leech off the names of others because he has no drawing power, yes. Do you think that this increases his stock, TS?

    Cast your mind back to the Tim Sylvia era. Lots of threads about him, very few positive – much like Woodley. After he got knocked off his perch he made one "money fight" versus Fedor, and then...

    Tyrun is Tim Sylvia before the Randy fight – except he already has a string of embarrassing losses, less notoriety and no title defences.

    Threads on Sherdog translate into PPV buys?

    It's mostly hardcore fans who are going to buy the PPV anyway or tune into his fights either way

    If there are threads about him on a Hello Kitty fan club forum then maybe

    Sherdog =/= casual fans

    I think you are mistaken.

    Yea, and he didn't have to resort to screaming in public nor steal wwe gimmicks to get the attention either.

    If Sherdog posts made a difference in how much money someone made, Wonderboy and Sage would be getting $5 million each for their next fights.

    Sherdog is a mma community who watch the UFC, how many casuals are talking about it?? How many talk shows are asking for Woodley to come on their show??

    None, sherdog isnt publicity

    lol Threads on here aren't going to matter when Dana tells him who he's fighting next or else he gets stripped.

    Most of the Sherbros seem gay = most of the human race is gay.

    He can't be stripped for turning down a fight. There have been 10 people stripped and each one under special circumstances. If Woodley said no to a Thompson fight, this would not be a special circumstance.

    GSP turned down Hendricks, was he stripped?

    I love the reference but I hate Triple H or Tri as he was first called.

    I disagree. The threads are not about Woodley, they are about Stephen Thompson. He is the new sherdog favorite, just like Hendricks was when GSP skipped him to fight Nick Diaz. Sherdoggers are being indignant for Thompson because how dare Woodley treat his career like a business.

    Did you notice hardly a peep when Bader was skipped?
    Did you notice that no one is crying foul for Jacare or Romero?
    Did you notice no one crying foul for Tony Ferguson? He has been tearing it up in the Octagon while Khabib has been tearing up his knees in practice.
    Will you notice anyone crying shenanigans when Dillashaw is skipped for Garbrant or Edgar (if he drops down)?

    Tyron Woodley is red herring.

    The days of "any publicity is good publicity" died when newspapers died.
