    ...acting like he's the UFC matchmaker and saying who he should fight next, who the #1 contender should fight next, and they're not fighting eachother.

    Most of the time, fighters that win the belt immediatley agree to an instant rematch, fight the #1 contender, or broadly say they'll fight anyone put infront of them.

    Woodley's saying Wonderboy should fight Lawler first. Umm... what? Woodley, who was gifted a title shot by Dana, says the fighter that merced Johnny Hendricks and out pointed Rory McDonald, hasn't earned a title shot yet.

    And even worse, Woodley thinks Nick Diaz, who hasn't won a fight since 2011, who's just now coming off a suspension, and fought four times in the last five years, should be gifted a title shot over Wonderboy.

    Fucking seriously.

    Woodley even aknowledges that Diaz would be a 'money fight.' So, that's what it's all about now.

    If Dana tolerates this and makes Woodley's proposed matchups, it'll be a clear example that the inmates are running the prison. And this is one reason why boxing has been slowly dying for decades.

    Woodley has been calling for a fight with Diaz for years now. Claimed he ducked him when Nick went over to UFC from strikeforce.

    If anything maybe he feels like he can actually have a say now, and obviously wanting to fight Nick isn't a new thing..

    Why can't we let Wonderboy KO that bum and then let Nick fight Wonderboy?

    It's only a "money fight" if it's the fight that appeals to the masses. Despite the facts you have pointed out about Diaz, I want to see that fight happen, and I would definitely buy that PPV. Woodley/Wonderboy.......I might buy that fight.

    Wonder boy deserves the shot by far. If this sport can muster up any legitimacy at all to the shots at the champions it should be wonderboy next.

    Good luck with that. Henderson getting a title shot is pretty bad by all accounts. Wouldn't be surprised if Diaz gets one.

    Nope. Bisping did it before Woodley.

    Bisbitch is duckin' everyone at 185 and now Woodley is duckin' Wonderboy.

    Imagine Woodley's reaction to Lombard vs Diaz instead

    No, he's not.
    Nunes also explained who Valentina should fight next instead of getting a title shot.
    Also Bisping.

    the difference in Conor is that he didn't pick an easier fight. He was gonna fight Dos Anjos.

    Conor did the same shit tho.
    So..you complain about woodley, do the same for conor. In fact conor is holding up the division.

    For some reason I don't like wonderboy, don't hate him, just don't like him. He reminds me of a male namajunes. All lanky and bendable. Even as much as you say the fans decide the money fight, no one even cares about wonderboy. I'd actually be surprised if anyone knew whonhe was.

    False. Conor made it a trend, Bisping called out Hendo and GSP, etc
