  1. Ufc is getting reckless by treating their fighters like this. First they shit on woodley constantly and now they betray Colby who i cant stand, but he worked hard to portray himself as a villain for this fight and they give it to usman instead who no one wants to see. Dumb AF move.

  2. Even if Covington finally gets to fight Woodley in the summer, the storyline will no longer about Woodley vs. Covington, but instead Covington & Woodley vs. UFC — the opposite of what the UFC wants for their brand.
    What a marketing disaster.

  3. T Wood fan when he had 10 fans left after his comments leading into Woodley vs. Wonderboy I. Nobody cares if he fights Usman ! Covington is the fight fans want! Good to see Dana's trained boy go rogue.

  4. UFC has become a crock of shit buisness….. Colby sold the Woodley fight to the fans and Woodley and earned his shot… go back in ny past comments i call colby a faggot a bitch etc. But the fight to make was Covington V Woodley and UFC fucked that up!!! Thank you ufc i guess Jones return was more important then the rest of the entire organization. You want PPV sales that was a fight to make for them sales and you guys as a organization fucked that up congratulations you played yourselves

  5. Playing favorites and Dana's pretty garbage are ruining the UFC. Make it a sport again Dana. Not a popularity contest.

    UFC would be better without Dana at this point.

    I never hear anyone say anything good about Dana.
