that's a good sign for those of us who pick Dana.
I’m just the old man around here.
It’s all good, most people say I act like a middle schooler so it makes up for it
31 is actually a kick ass age.
The younger babes think youre hot shit and you don’t even have to do anything
Hmmm, putting all the blame on Tyron, and not the fact that Wonder is hard to look good against, Tyron tore a ligament in the Maia fight, and there are absolutely many people who don't like him because of his skin color.
Race baiting you say? That's exactly what you're doing right now.
Threads like this are the exact reason why Tyron recognizes his race plays a factor.
Once you make $400,000,000 wouldn't you think you'd stop giving a fuck about which of your fighters "sells the most ppv's" and just try to enjoy your job?
Dana has McMahon-itis. No matter the fame and fortune he cannot help being personally involved to his own detriment.
Everything you said is true. But Dana is an idiot for not running with Tyron after this last fight. For fucks sake, I am sure Woodley will read or have someone tell him how the fans are reacting. He already seems to be fixing what is wrong. It is time to push Woodley, not run away. That is smart business.
If he didn't fuck about which of his fighters sells the most ppv's, he wouldn't have made $400,000,000 in the first place.
It always amazes me how people don't get behind this point.
Imagine being a burger flipper that didn't cook burgers... What the hell are you even doing if you aren't doing the job you're paid to do?
Do all black guys have to act like Adrian Broner to sell a ppv or what? I see nothing wrong with Woodley going against the expectations and talk/act like an intelligent human being, at the cost of PPV, who gives a shit about that? Not me.
Fighters sell fights, not promoters.
You think Dana could magically get more PPV buys for his champs that don't sell well?
And he's not doing this.... why?
If a promoter’s job isn’t to sell the fights (see: “Promote”), what exactly is their job?
Answer my question then.
I'm not saying it's not his job to promote, I'm saying people buy a fight because of the FIGHTERS. Not the promoter.
While true, there's also a time to let it go. Fighters stocks rise and fall like Georges repeatedly pointed out, and past the WB draw Woodley's had 3 convincing title defenses and a great performance in his last. He's a dependable champ who doesn't miss weight and wins.
Time to forget the personal stuff and help him get more views. I heard no mention of his upcoming single or his champ camp during the promotion from the UFC, for example. Just stories that he's disliked. Well I dislike some too, doesn't mean there's zero value in them.
Tldr but fuck you youre a dumbass
I don’t like Dana or Tyron so..
I get it that I don't like tryone because I'm racist. My conflict is why I like DC, MM, Kevin (rip) so much, and my best friend at work is black.
You have to have a marketable product to promote. Do you think Conor McGregor made it to where he is alone ? He received a tremendous push from the UFC. When Dana sees that someone will make him money, they'll hype the fuck out of them (ie: N'Gannou. It's just that Tyron Woodley pushes these dollars away.
Aside from a few hardcore fans on Sherdog (the vocal minority whom you see in this thread), Woodley has failed to connect with the fans. Woodley's rise to fame peaked with him becoming a TMZ reporter.
I'm saying that the bitterness doesn't help. I listed 2 things the UFC could promote, but they choose not to, they'd rather complain. The usual from them. If a star isn't handed to them on a silver platter they don't know what to do. Maybe look at their nationality/heritage, or other amateur moves that often don't describe the fighter.
No, some of us are adults and not a petulant man-child
But so ORIGINAL though - never heard these arguments before. TS really thinking this out for himself.....
