He's not short of confidence but I guarantee when he steps into the boxing ring, he doesn't put out.

Tyron Shoodley, shoulda this, shoulda that, shoulda shut up :biggrin:

:heart: :heart:

Woodley will finally get paid what he is worth!

He took the reign over an exciting division and almost killed it with the most boring title fights possible. What is this worth?

IMO Tyron has faced a lot tougher/larger fighters and finishes people in devastating fashion. Props for GSP beating Bisping at 185 but Woodley has surpassed GSP talent-wise. Woodley fights just as smart as GSP but takes less damage and finishes tougher/larger fighters.

So getting bounced from the UFC after all those losses? Prime Georges all day. Usman is better than Woodley and I am still not that impressed by his performance against some of his opponents. Woodley definitely has a punching power advantage over Georges and possibly Usman though. I would not hate for him to end this faux-celebrity boxing shit with a knockout.

PS: If he does can they make the announcer say this Knock Out has been brought to you by Ball Wipes? That's the brand he endorses right?

The bus incident was staged. UFC employees were caught on camera leading Conor and entourage to what was supposed to be the secured area for fighters.

Commentary is fed lines and told who and what to hype.

Press conferences are scripted.

We have never once gotten substantiated PPV buy data. Journalists estimate buys based on Google search impressions, Dana throws out numbers that suit his agenda, and people just accept those as fact.

Fighters are contractually obligated to beef on social media.

Disney owns ESPN and therefore has a controlling interest in UFC by proxy.

There is nothing stopping scorecards from being rigged.

Refs who want the big money fights will do whatever UFC wants.

As much as Dana ragged on guys getting paid more to stand with Kimbo in EliteXC, UFC influences fights as well. Dustin Poirier only got paid a PPV bonus if he TKO’ed Conor, for example, and his contract also included an immediate rematch clause if that happened.

UFC is a monopsony.

^ Seems like people still don't want to admit. It's fine, things like this take time to accept. We are hardwired to defend our constructed realities.

Speaking of accepting reality, the red pill is literally estrogen.

...who have since confirmed the multitude of transgender imagery/references and themes of transcending one's gender identity. The red pill is obviously a reference to one of the most common hormone therapies for male-to-female transitions.

Holy shit is this true? I believe you but wow that is pretty nuts. I do not see much of a difference in that and just straight up pulling an EliteXC and tell a fighter to stand and trade with another fighters before the fight in the locker room.

The deeper in bed the UFC gets with Disney/popular culture the worse he has got in a lot of ways. Luckily we still have a shit ton of talented fighters but the organization itself is going in the shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitter
