    No, money fight to these pathetic champs is not an easy fight, just a way to stay champ another day.

    I just find it funny the excuses they come up with when they dodge the best in their division. I have posted numerous times about fighters claiming Khabib is overrated/doesn't deserve his ranking. If a fighter isn't good then step up and starch them. Don't make excuses as to why they don't deserve to fight you.

    Apparently in 2016, "money fights" mean "I want to fight someone who's a draw that hasn't fought in a year or more."
     
  6. Does anybody want to see Woodley lay on top of Diaz for 5 rounds? I sure don't.

    Woodley and Nunes can't draw on their own

    I think WB deserves the next shot just like everyone else, but let's not be obtuse or make things up. Diaz, Ronda, or GSP are much bigger draws than WB or Valentina. They are the definition of money fights. Bitch all we like, casuals and hardcores are still going to pay to watch a big name come back.

    Woodley isn't a draw at all himself and just won the championship on a gifted titleshot. If Thompson wins vs Woodley, now that's a money fight (Thompson vs Diaz).

    You're right, he's not a draw..but what he has (the belt) is. Put that up against any big name and you'll have a successful card. Diaz v Thompson would be a better fight I believe, but it wouldn't do significantly better than Diaz v Woodley. Neither are that big. If Thompson beat Woodley in devastating fashion and then beat his next opponent in the same way, THEN he'd probably get a lot mkre deserved recognition. The way the Rory fight went hurt him a bit imo

    Derp. It's a money fight from their point of view because they would make more money than if they fought other people.

    Nunes vs Pena
    Alvarez vs Nurmagomedov
    Woodley vs Thompson

    They all want Rousey, GSP or even Diaz.
