I would laugh if the new UFC just cuts Woodley. He isn't going to be a star and he is not worth all the headaches.

UFC fans still salty he KO'd their beloved Lawler. Wonderboy was UFCs best chance to lift the belt off of Woodley in the near future and he couldn't get it done after 10 rounds.

Nope, it's the new UFC making moves to cut a lot of fighters who aren't stars. Then you have a champ that most people don't like now. It wouldn't be a smart move, but I would laugh. Dana said if you aren't a star you should just shut up and fight.

I'm sure WME has all kinds graphs, charts , etc. determining the value of each of their fighters, but how do you determine who's a star?

I guess I'd tier them

Hardcore fan stars
Casual fan stars
General sports fan stars
Crossover "Good morning America" type stars lol.

That would never happen. They arent going to cut a champion no matter what he says. They have actually been strategic about who they have cut not resigned.

Bader (never headlined a PPV and not a huge TV draw)
Davis (same as above)
Mitrione (same as above)
B. Henderson (on the downward slope of his career and overpaid by Bellator)
R. Macdonald (rumors are that Bellator is paying him more than Wonderboy who beat him last year).

Woodley doesnt fall in any of those categories.

I think this is one of the reasons that Woodley gets booed. That and some UFC fans issues with race.

IMO Woodley KOing Lawler has nothing to do with why people don't like him. People liked lawler, but he's never been some baby face super star.

It's his self entitled, narcissistic, crybaby, race-card playing antics that people don't like.

I actually kinda like the guy personally, but it's kinda easy to see why people are turned off by how he acts, and the things he says.
