    Man they have gotten so amazingly bold lately it's unreal. They are blatantly displaying that not only do rankings mean fuck all but also that they will throw meaningless belts on a ppv just to sell tickets. Not to mention how the little drug testing charade has unraveled lately.

    The smoke has been cleared, the grand lie exposed, yet still people give the asshats money.

    when i heard they told congress that the belts do not mean the fighter is champion, just that he's the best fighter that night it was pretty obvious the entire company drive changed to 100% prize fights. if a title is included, great! but it's actually irrelevant

    There's something up with Colby. The fact taht he said he can't get in touch with Dana after this fight was made tells me he's burned some bridges somewhere (shocking) and he might be going to another org involuntarily.

    NOBODY likes the guy for shit's sake. he's a terrible 'heel' because he just says offensive shit and you can tell it's actually what he believes. he's just a shitty person

    I feel more sorry for Usman having to take this fight than for Colby not getting it.

    Tyron Woodley listed as UFC 235 betting favorite over Kamaru Usman – but not by a lot

    Wow, I wonder what the real reasons for all of that are. He’s right about one thing. I do not give a shit about a Woodley/Usman title fight. Not yet anyway. As much as I can’t stand the guy, I do really want to see Colby get some big fights in. He has to back up all that hype and bullshit or get smacked up. I’ll still watch Woodley/Usman but damn.

    Colby spitting fire at the UFC.

    Way to commit career suicide.

    The UFC wont cut you dummy, they will just fuck with your career.

    I think a lot of the reasons are right there in his own words. he doesn't carry the power to be talking shit like he does to the UFC. For whatever reason, nobody cares about him. Not even caring enough about him to hate on him.
    It's weird. Some people just don't get to that point. Honestly maybe it's just because the UFC doesn't like him. but if they had promoted him I think they could have made him pretty infamous. Guy has a fantastic record and has done great in the UFC. Granted he has a 14-1 record, but only the last 3 guys he's fought are top guys. Kim Dong-hyun, Damian Mia and recently RDA are the only guys in his resume that are talking points.

    I swear they said he was stripped due to inactivity but it's only been maybe 6 months since he beat RDA. That's hardly sitting out.

    He had to have burned his bridges on the inside more. These days the UFC sure as shit doesn't 'need' Colby. He's fuckin delusional if he thinks that.

    Maybe it's the shit he pulled in Australia that sealed his fate. Pretty obvious how they feel about him if he went over there on a paid job, got in a fight and sent home so they didn't pay

    Put it this way. Endeavor manages a shit load of fighters in theit own ufc. They could stack cards with them and that slimeball Ari's fighters alone

    Maybe they'll rename the UFC to UFEG [ultimate fighting entertainment group]

    I really enjoy the tantrum this tool is throwing. I mean he's just so boring to me. His wannabe Chael schtick is uninteresting to the point that I honestly don't even care to watch him lose.

    Not too interested in the Usman fight but I won't mind Woodley smashing another guy Dana is praying to get Woodley outta there.

    I'm interested in the Usman fight. I like Kamaru, but I don't think he'll be able to deal with Woodley's striking. For me, it's less about a spectacle--I'd love to see Woodley shut Coby's mouth, but he's not a legitimate threat, anywhere--and about the fight itself. It doesn't have inherent drama that pulls a spectator in...but at least it doesn't have melodrama. I'm not a fan of hype and overhype.

    I'm 100% sure a UFC minion was catering to Cody's ego the whole time, until someone told him to stop. I could see Coldy looking at Iaquinta's entirely insane business model [goes from highly-vocal-bonus-ban-shit-list-still-without-a-fuck-to-give to magically-appearing-interim-title-shot] and thinking he can copy it...but he lacks the in-cage drama of Iaquinta, as well as Als' spine and charisma...not to mention I don't think Al was ever bluffing.

    I think you are right...the UFC cares about money. It will pretend it cares about "what the fans want" if that dovetails with piles of money, it will pretend it cares about "a fighter's legacy" if that doevetails with money, but they'll abandon every last ideal if it doesn't turn a dime. They don't care about the sport, they don't care about the fans, and they certainly don't care about the fighters.

    I currently work at a university, where much of the leadership above me is spineless and will lie when they don't even need to lie. And I imagine it's still better then working with the UFC.
