    He needs to sell the fight and why it would be cool and call out Nick Diaz instead of saying, mer I'm the champion now I want big money. No one cares what you want, we want awesome fights and Nick fighting at 202 for the belt with Nate Conor II on the card would be awesome...SELL THAT, dont sell us, hey I just won the title like 30 mins ago, I deserve the big money fights now. Also saying Wonderboy doesn't deserve it because he said he wanted to fight Robbie is lame especially when ur only selling point on a Diaz fight is you deserve all the money the second you won the belt.

    WAR DIAZ

    Hes not selling HIMSELF as much as hes selling Diaz and GSP and the fact that they are money draws.

    Anything he says will sound horrible. Nick Diaz doesn't deserve it and there's nothing Woodley can say to change it. At least he's being honest and admitting he wants the money fight and that's it.

    Woodley may not present a big enough pay day for Diaz.

    He needs to hype it if he wants it, many fans love the Diaz brother and if you want something like him vs Nick in 3-4 weeks then you need to promote it with hype, you need substantial fan support because it makes no sense to make unless the fans want it so bad not booking it is dumb. Dont promote it with, mer I want money. Woodley isn't a draw yet, now that he is champ being a draw is in his hand, he has the gold and its all up to him, mostly.

    Thats why he needed to call him out and hype it instead of saying that he himself wants Diaz to fight so that HE can get more money...This is why I think he went about calling for this fight allll wrong. It needed to start in the ring with rogan on the mic and if not then when he was on FS1 and the post fight presser he needed to sell why the fight would be great for 202 and the fans and not his wallet. Hes no big draw name.

    I WANT this fight to happen but Tyrone is trying to get it the wrong way, I doubt it builds much steam at all and thats bad because this is something that needs to be put together asap.

    Yeah, you're right, Woodley needs to go about differently. But even if Woodley did it the right way, I just don't think he'll achieve an awareness level needed to generate enough PPVs to make it worth Diaz's time and effort. I would think Diaz only considers fights with a PPV potential buy rate over 1 million.

    202 is going to be over 1 million for sure...But now that I think of it Nate said he didn't like fighting on the same card as his brother or teammates because he doesn't like the split attention with corners/camps ect ect. So this fight is totally not happening unless UFC shovels them out lots of money.

    Yeah, that is actually a good point. He's not going to push a PPV that high by himself, so he needs to shoot for a Woodley/Diaz fight on a card with other huge PPV draws.

    Honestly, Diaz would probably make more money fighting Lawler again. Woodley might have the belt, but Robbie has the crowd.

    This. I can understand where Woodley is coming from and what he wants to get out of all this. There's nothing wrong with wanting the money fights. But as a new champ he really needs a win over a guy like Wonderboy to put him into position to be able to sell a money fight, because despite being champ he himself isn't exactly a must see fighter yet. This is especially true since he's been out so long.

    I like how Twood expects Nick to accepts the fight on 3 weeks notice so he can get on the 202 card. Also Nick belongs no where near a title fight.

    Yeah he sounds entitled. They say attitude is everything in life: when you got nothing stay patient and when you have everything to be humble. I get these guys want to make money, but don't alienate yourself in the process. You need fan support especially in this business, just look at how it's propelled Nate Diaz.

    He has zero chips to gamble with. He will fight who the UFC tells him to fight.

    Its not like he wants to move up to a bigger challenge. Hes calling out dudes who arent even fighting that are in his weight class. WTF?

    Give him Wonderboy.
     
  20. It would have been very easy for Woodley to sell the fight.

    When Diaz was Strikeforce champ, he fought guys who were mostly strikers when Woodley was an undefeated contender. Plenty of people out there were saying that Woodley was his kryptonite, this was back when his lay and pray was as shameless as it gets. It wasn't until Diaz moved to the UFC that he got his shot against Marquardt. Woodley could've said Diaz was ducking him back then and that now he has the belt and he's the one calling the shots and wants to make him pay for it, blah blah blah. It would've been very easy to do and it would've sounded a lot better than what he actually said.
