No doubt, Dana believes that Usman has a better chance of taking out Woodley so has screwed Colby. Never underestimate how much Dana hates Woodley. I hate Colby overall but he def got done over here and tbh his trashing of the UFC and Dana was right on point
What reason would Dana have for 'hating Woodley' (genuine question) ?

No real logical reason tbh, just Dana at his unreasonable and prickish best. They’ve had an extremely fractured relationship for years. Dana likes fighters that will do whatever the UFC wants, no questions asked, even if its a very poor choice for their own careers.

Woodley has never allowed himself to be forced into situations by White such as rushing training camps, fighting injured or before he is ready, adjusting his style to placate White and others belief that he doesn’t fight in an exciting enough style.

Woodley has been very openly and vocally critical of the UFC in the past, likewise White has on several occasions appeared to throw his champion under the bus.

A quick google search will bring up tons of stuff.

See after the Till fight and how pissed off Dana was that he didn’t have another UK cash cow to ride and had to put the belt back around Woodleys waist.

Woodley hasn’t been without his faults either through all of this. Far too thin skinned and at times in the past far too quick to pull a race card.

Thanks for that. I love watching UFC but I don't follow the day to day shenanigans inside the sport or go too much into the personal characters involved. One thing's for sure. Tyron is a wonderful fighter who fully deserves his belt, and Dana, seeing what the UFC has become over the last ten years, is obviously a wonderful President.
