It was a nice try, Rafael. But Tyron Woodley just shut down whatever discussion there was on a 170 pound interim belt.
Say what you will about Tyron Woodley’s recent performances inside the cage, but you can’t deny the guy has been more active than any other UFC champ lately. That’s why it was kinda ridiculous when Rafael dos Anjos called for his fight with Robbie Lawler at UFC on FOX 26 in December to be upgraded into an interim title fight.
Am’I the only one that thinks that this fight should be for a interim title? Since the champ is out until next year?

First off, it’s October. ‘Out until next year’ isn’t that long. From there, I’ll just let Tyron himself finish things off.
Am I the only Champ that has fought 4X in 12months? Against REAL #1 contenders! Get past @Ruthless_RL then come holla at these hands! @ufc

Let’s hope any eventual fight with Woodley goes better for dos Anjos than this recent social media exchange.
