    It is pretty funny that Woodley has been parked all this time waiting for "his shot". Meanwhile, guys like Condit, Thompson, and Maia have built way better claims at #1 contender.
    Surely it won't be Woodley/Lawler at UFC 200?
    WW is becoming crowded.

    I agree. If Conor takes out RDA dominant fashion he should move right to WW title fight if he wants to. Also i cant understand why Woodley should have titleshot anytime soon. Last time he fought was over year ago and he only have split desicion win against Gastelum and he TKOd DHK whos currently ranked 8th.

    But.... but.... but he beat overweight zombie Gastelum (later beaten out of the top 10 by short-notice Magny) over a year ago! Surely that means he's the number 1 contender?? No? Well what about his long, illustrious 2-0 undefeated streak?

    I wouldn't say he's 11th, but I don't think it's an option for him to sit out and wait for the title shot. WW is getting too crowded

    Sure, I'll bite.

    Only people who deserve it more are Wonderboy and Maia if he beats Brown.

    Sure, Conor deserves it more than others that have fought at WW.......

    He should have to defend both belts at least 2x before thinking about moving to WW. Even then I don't think he should be able to challenge for the belt right away.

    So he's about #25 on the list.

    Condit? Didnt he "earn" his shot after beating thiago alves,who wasnt even top 10 and didnt look impresive in doing it. Oh i forgot that he got dominated by woodley before alves fight.

    the clear #1 contender is Wonderboy, there should be no question about it. Hendricks is arguably undefeated, except 2 close decision and Wonderboy obliterated him
