Dos Anjos (27-9 MMA, 16-7 UFC), who earned a first-round submission victory over Neil Magny (19-6 MMA, 12-5 UFC) in Saturday's UFC 215 co-main event, called out Woodley (18-2-1 MMA, 8-2-1 UFC) following the event. However, a few minutes later, Dos Anjos was able to step over Magny's leg into full mount.
"One thing I can be sure, is we're going to fight", dos Anjos added.
Dos Anjos took Magny down nearly immediately with a leg kick, landing in Neil's half guard.
UFC 215 went down Saturday night live from the Rogers Place arena in Edmonton, Alberta.
It made for an ignominious end to Dos Anjos' run as 155-pound titleist.
But on a UFC 215 pay-per-view card that had to be revamped after Demetrious Johnson's scheduled flyweight title defense against Ray Borg was scratched just before weigh-ins, Dos Anjos roared back to contender status.
When asked about what type of fight dos Anjos envisions he could have against Woodley, dos Anjos said he believes it would be a brawl if the two fighters met in the octagon. "I have confidence in me, in my cardio, and I'm going to make him work".
His arrival in the 170-pound title picture is well-timed, too. I'm a new blood in this division and I was ready to take the fight with Woodley if Damien Maia didn't take the fight, but he took the fight, but I was getting ready for it. I punch the hardest in the UFC of all the fighters. After a lengthy negotiation over his comeback bout, St-Pierre is booked to take on Michael Bisping for the middleweight title at UFC 217 on November 4. He got off to a good start with a win over Tarec Saffiedine and now he takes on another tough welterweight opponent. "All I'm saying is there are a lot of guys in my division".
