Tyron Woodley Fires Back at Rafael dos Anjos Suggesting an Interim Title Fight

Tyron Woodley Fires Back at Rafael dos Anjos Suggesting an Interim Title Fight

Two former Champions ranked #1 and #5 fighting while the current Champ needs months to recover from an injury…if it looks like a duck

@ufc — Tyron T-Wood Woodley (@TWooodley) October 12, 2017

Woodley has been one of the most active champions on the roster including two title fights already in 2017 with both bouts going the full five rounds.

It would take Woodley sitting out until July 2018 for the welterweight title to sit on the sidelines for a full year, which means that dos Anjos’ request will likely fall on deaf ears.

What dos Anjos might get instead is a shot at Woodley and the title next year should he get past Lawler on Dec. 16 in the main event at FOX UFC Fight Night from Winnipeg, Canada.

Well it didn’t take long for Woodley to respond, especially considering his spot atop the division has been secured ever since winning the belt in July 2016.
