    In light of Tyron Woodley comment about himself being an OG and deserving a money fight, I got to thinking about who my OG's that earned and deserved to be selective with their future bouts/ opponents based off of performance, tenure, and star power. Here a list starting with LW and moving up:

    LW: BJ Penn/ Jens Pulver
    WW: Matt Hughes/ GSP
    MW: Dan Henderson/ A. Silva
    LHW: Chuck Liddell/ Wanderlei Silva/ Dan Henderson
    HW: Fedor Emelianenko/ Randy Couture

    In my opinion, T-Wood, though opportunistic and incredibly explosive, is not on any of their level.

    As much as I know things don't necessarily work this way, I like to think that a champion could never be selective.

    I agree, though I just missed his era as the first time I saw him, Cro Cop damn near decapitated him. He definitely didn't seem like he hand chose his opponents.

    Always been a T-wood fan, Liked him since his SF debut... Him acting like he can call the shots as soon as he gets the belt is really lame and making me dislike him quickly

    If you were fighting in any organization previous to the first TUF show then you should be considered an OG to the sport.

    Please stop guys. Sorry to be a spoiled sport, but OG stands for Original Gangsta. None of these guys qualify.
