Rafael dos Anjos is campaigning for his bout with Robbie Lawler to be for an interim 170 belt, but it looks like the champ Tyron Woodley isn’t exactly on the same page…
Recently the UFC announced that RDA and Lawler will fight on December 16th, in the headliner of UFC on FOX 26 in Winnipeg. After the compelling bout was announced, dos Anjos took to social media and made the posts below:
Am'I the only one that thinks that this fight should be for a interim title? Since the champ is out until next year?

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, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it MUST be a duck!!! This is an Interim Title Fight no matter what the headlines say!!! Let's do this @ruthless_rl ||<><><>|| Dois ex-campeões rank número 1 e 5 lutando, enquanto o atual campeão precisa de muitos meses pra se recuperar de uma lesão… Isso parece um pato , anda igual pato , faz som de pato , então isso TEM QUE SER um pato !!!

After that, however, Mr. Woodley had this to say in response:

Woodley is still recovering from a shoulder injury he incurred during his decision win over Demian Maia in July. It’s not really clear yet, when he’ll be ready to fight again.
