    Keep trying to convince yerself Woodley. As if people can't figure out what they like to see in champions.

    That's true. He did try to discredit the streak Thompson had at that point, and it only exarcebated the negative perception people had of him. His gripes with Dana, though, are as legit as they come. Sadly, very few will see it that way given the circumstances.

    There's probably not a fighter in the UFC at the moment who needs to step away from the press ans social media than him because whatever he says will simply be dismissed as whining.

    Doesn't matter if he's been a champ or not. I've never been the president of the united states, but I am more than capable of criticizing one. I would like to believe that most people want a champion to behave the way Hardy described.

    Dan Hardy is ignorant of the fact Woodley is one of the greatest fighters in the modern era of MMA who has defended the WW belt more regularly than other UFC champs and who speaks against the racism in MMA but of course the majority of the MMA community will be racist towards him via hiding behind the let's spam sarcastic remarks on social media and Youtube videos of everything being racist in order to insult him more.

    Some throw in actual racist remarks in there and try to slide it in as part of the sarcasm.

    These dudes are hurt by their great white hopes losing. Hurt by Rashad and Rampage/Chuck, Wonderboy/Woodley twice, Nunes/Shevchenko twice and just recently Cyborg/ Holm.

    Shutting down Maia's BJJ ability with supreme TDD just made it even worse.

    Clinging onto the only white hope who actually got a UD over Woodley in Rory MacDonald or reaching even further with the roided Nate Marquardt fight earlier in Woodley's career.

    This is part of the racism that Woodley is talking about which was confirmed even more so when an MMA podcast lead by former UFC HW Brandon Schuab made a racial twitter post about how the Fox Panel had just black people only.

    Justice prevailed though when one of the UFC Fox panellists, legendary MMA veteran Yves Edwards spoke out well against Brandon Schaub and made him apologize for that blatant racist remark on twitter.

    Now Hardy is trying to advise Woodley that he has to conform to a racial stereotype like the Mandingo fighter or the "thug" or the over the top arrogant "baller" just to get that "money" fight and even be liked as a champion.

    Respect to Woodley for speaking well against it.

    Thats not the same lol. Being UFC champion isnt comparable to being president lol. I would expect something so stupid to come out a Conor fans mouth.

    I liked this and unliked it, just so I could like it again

    My God Hardy is a Cunt isn't he.









    As a fighter, he was literally the biggest cunt in UFC history. Then he started the commentary. And while he was certainly still an A-Level, athletic and explosive cunt, I found myself overlooking that because large chunks of his commentary were remarkably lucid and on point.

    But now here he is going full cunt again. You just don't do that.

    Wrong.

    If he took to social media demanding a top contender ASAP (say, RDA) and promising to obliterate them outright, without a care in the world about how much money it made him, nobody with a head on their shoulders would call him a whiner.

    Certainly not me.

    If he can't do that, and wants to continue crying about being a victim in every way possible, then yea, he needs to step away.

    You're an idiot buddy. The point is you don't have to be a cook to judge a meal, or a movie director to judge a film. What Hardy said was obvious to anybody. But what can I expect with someone who dedicated his account to a great value conor knockoff.

    In the 2 years he's been champion, have you seen him do that? Him doing that is as likely as Nate not wanting to fight Conor.

    Which is why he'll continue to earn the label "whiner". And why? Because he simply is one.

    Being a UFC champion is the same as judging a meal lol ? Your a cave dweller telling Tyron Woodley how to be a champion lol. Same with Dan Hardy, he never even sniffed a UFC title, yet hes telling Woodley how to be a champion lol. Thats idiotic.

    Talk is cheap outside the cage... Woodley should be worried about Dos Anjos... and making an exciting fight.

    Have you seen him on JRE? He's salty that Rogan had to mildly call him out on his insecurities.

    I like Hardy but he's way out of line here and doesn't see the situation for what it is.

    Woodley has done absolutely everything the UFC has asked him to do and look where thats gotten him. He's fought often. He's fought everyone the UFC has picked for him to fight. And people bitch and people moan. So Woodley says how about a money fight, something the fans would like to see.

    And all the fans are like "stfu and fight who the UFC tells you" which of course is exactly what he's been doing all along while fans bitch.

    I saw Dan tweet this earlier today and one of the 1st responses nailed it. It was something along the lines of "What the fuck do you know about being a champ?"

    As I said, I like Hardy, be he has no clue what its like to not only be a champ, but to be fighting in the UFC today. He hasn't competed since 2012, over 6 years ago and under different ownership.

    He embarrassed himself with this exchange.

    IF you want to be recognized as the best you have to show the fans that you are. Woodley isn’t showing me too much to represent the best. IMO. Can’t be the best when you’re getting decisions.
