    Everytime this guy opens his mouth he says something stupid, ignorant or wrong. He also isn't even that great of a fighter, who also got a gift title shot that wasn't earned.

    He could be very well received, but (as you say) he cannot help but speak stupidly. If he loses, I can see him getting one or two more losses and being gone from the UFC.

    Maybe because they're not invested in what he says and are invested in what he does.


    Maybe you should give it a try. Because honestly, how do you get butthurt by Woodley. The dude is barely relevant besides the TS.

    Considering he has multiple fights on his pro record, you just sound salty.

    He's more athletic than me and thats saying a lot. He's a beast. He has a chance vs RL but it's a slugger chance. Robbie Lawler has been unbeatable virutally winning decisions all the time.

    Lots of fighters are outspoken but T Wood is skilled and a real challenge to Lawler. He's a family man too.

    I've never really seen him praised on this board before

    I'm actually more curious why he gets so much hate. His mum is extremely annoying, but he's humble and reasonable in pretty much every interview I've seen of him.

    if you cheer for woodley over lawler, you don't make sense to me. I hate woodley, but I also was there when he laid on guys in Strikeforce, then opened up the floodgates for idiots to say that UFC journeymen were better than strikeforce's best when marquardt knocked him out. Woodley let down the team.

    Damn straight. Met him at the fan expo during Silva/Sonnen 2 weekend and the guy was a class act. We got to talk to for a bit about his style and how no one can really stop him from doing what he does and then I declared him the next WW champ in Strikeforce (we all know the result of that) and looked forward to him eventually jumping to the UFC. Very friendly guy and the next UFC WW Champion.

    I've heard many people call him racist lately, have I missed something?

    Is there evidence or videos etc. of him making anti-white comments?

    I'm a fan. How can you say a bad word about Woodley? He's a great fighter, CLEAN athlete and a worthy man.
    For Christ sake, he rejected Gastelum's 20% purse when he was some 10lbs heavier for their fight, which he WON.

    P.S. I'm WHITE, but it never mattered!
