In the eyes of Dana White, Tyron Woodley has all the ingredients to be a big UFC star. There’s just one thing missing, the UFC president said.

“He’s a smart guy, he’s a good-looking kid,” White said Friday on ESPN Radio’s Russell and Kanell. “He’s explosive. He’s got knockout power. But he’s a bit of a drama queen.”

Gotta agree with the bald one on this one. Tyrone can be kind of boring sometimes.

Egg Head is right. Tyron got the belt and immediately started running his mouth as an analyst publicly about his desire to 'choose his opponents' as he is the champ now. By doing that it only hinders the sport and the aspiring champs. He has taken on the #1 contender, soon to be twice. But he was admimant he wanted a 'big money' fight out of either GSP or Diaz, neither of which are coming back anytime soon. Frankly, I've never liked the guy. And his momma's screaming was very distracting during his run in SF

Right? There's an irony in him griping about being treated poorly when he had a very weak run to the title shot in the first place. Guys like Holloway or Edgar or Fitch had to win ~8 straight while Woodley beats Kim and Gastelum (by split decision, no less) and gets a shot. I'm not even outraged by the shot, but if you're going to complain about mistreatment, this is a huge counterpoint.

He should of never even got that title shot. He never earned one. He basically got it by default because Hendricks missed weight then he sat out a year to cash in.

Now he wants to pick fights smh

I agree. It is not a black thing. Anderson is black and is considered by most a GOAT. Tyron is a boring fighter. Wet blanket would be the best way I can describe the man. He has had a couple flashes of greatness but otherwise is a boring fighter and a "play it safe" kind of fighter. And, I agree he is like the "King of Default". Default title-shot and stayed Champ by default. To clarify my definition of a default champ, a default champ is a champ that Draws with his opponent so he stays champ by default not because he legitimately won.
