hi-res-9fae03b38438d991d77142c40c8c99d6_

As the reigning king of the UFC welterweight division Tyron Woodley is used to having a target on his back. "The Chosen One" is also one of the most outspoken titleholders under the promotional banner, which only furthers the draw toward stepping into the cage with him.

 

Everyone seems to want to fight the heavy-handed powerhouse, and now Rafael dos Anjos' name can be officially added to the list.

The Brazilian former lightweight champion has found new life by moving up a weight class and notching back-to-back wins at welterweight

 

Immediately following the fight, dos Anjos told the UFC's Megan Olivi he's gunning for a shot at Woodley and championship gold.

"This division's wide open; all the top five, top six guys in this division have lost to the champion or to the last challenger, which was Demian Maia," dos Anjos said. "[Stephen] Thompson lost twice to Woodley already. I'm the new blood in this division. I was getting ready to fight Woodley if Maia didn't, but he ended up taking the fight.

"One thing I can be sure, is we're going to fight. I'm not going to let him walk around, and I'm going to make sure I push the pace. I'm not saying I will not use my strategy. Of course I will. But I will walk forward. I have confidence in me, in my cardio, and I'm going to make him work."

While Woodley is used to getting called out by potential contenders, that doesn't mean he's taking all applicants at this time. The former wrestling standout turned mixed martial arts champion is all about getting the biggest fights and most lucrative paydays possible at the current time, and dos Anjos doesn't necessarily fit the criteria in that regard.

 

"I didn't take it personally," Woodley said. "All I'm saying is there are a lot of guys in my division. They always put them in front of me, and everyone thinks they have the solution to beat me. But I think I'm the most well-rounded fighter. I punch the hardest in the UFC of all the fighters. And he's a great fighter. He's a former world champion. I do think one or two more fights in the division, with a great performance like he had this evening, we will see him on the other side of the Octagon. At that point, we'll be ready to role.

"I've got a Gucci belt you can have. I've got a Louis Vuitton belt you can have, but the welterweight gold, the 14 pounds, brother -- it's going to be a long time before I give that up.

"I want to fight at middleweight,"
he added. "So, I'm thinking about taking a trip up to middleweight."

 


"All will be well."

That Stephens uppercut might be the single most beautiful punch ever landed in the UFC. Made all the more sweeter by ktfo-ing a Brazilian maggot :-)

RDA is *** joke. Dude is delusional and Woodley is right (not even Woodleys fan).

 

RDA beats a guy who is not even a top 3 and talks about title shot ?! lol

 

Give him the big dogs like Lawler, Masdival, Thompson and even Maia for that matter then lets see whats up.

He surprised me too but lets keep it real ... the fight didnt stand for too long.

 

I was very curious to see how he would deal with Magny standing.

oh-its-true-its-damn-true.jpg

 

 

he's the only draw the ufc has left now that anderson/wanderlei silva, jds, machida, brock lesnar, and jon jones got exposed as steroid abusing frauds, aldo and rousey were exposed for having glass jaws, rampage, hendo,  randy, chuck and tito retired, chael p, rory and kongo moved to bellator, and connor is never coming back. without GSP making his triumphant return to the octangular jungle, the UFC would fold by november.  which is why we should all be celebrating GSP Appreciation Month harder than ever come November 1'st like the real UFC fans that we are.

 

michael ' hands of steel' bisping is probably the 2nd biggest draw the ufc has, but that only works in england m8. gsp is miles ahead of this crumpet eating loudmouth, and all the other fighters are miles behind bisping. everybody in the world tunes in to watch GSP win another fight m8. thats just the truth.  no other fighter brings in the kind of buys that GSP brings in. And connor is never coming back just to make dimes and nickels in the ufc.

 

lets face it, without GSP making his long awaited return to take the middleweight title, the UFC would be no more, or at best, would be playing second fiddle to bellator

Who the hell does Woodley think he's going to fight at Middleweight?

 

Bisping's tied up with GSP then the winner has to defend it against Whittaker.

 

By the time all that is sorted by about early/mid 2018 we will have either Rockhold, Souza, Romero or Weidman ready as the next contender.

 

So early 2019 before I see an opportunity for Woodley to fight for the MW belt, im sure Woodley wants to be hated.

He is the most p*** poor self promoter in history.  All his wining, accusing and alleging will never win fans or make anyone want to tune in to anything he has to say.  Also - I can recall him saying that Condit didn't injure his leg during that win - it was Woodley's actions that led to the leg injury..  Really??  Talk that cheap will certainly win hearts and minds as much as avoiding 26 takedowns by not engaging.  GO T-WOOD!

DosAnjos at 170 ...lmao not a chance in hell does he crack top 10,likely not top 20.Sure he can pick soem spots,find favorable fights but he is not good enough to be anything at 170.

His last two wins were over two guys who really are lucky to even be in the UFC,so nobody's.
