Tyron Woodley shuts down Rafael dos Anjos’ call for an interim welterweight title

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.

First off, it's October. 'Out until next year' isn't that long. From there, I'll just let Tyron himself finish things off.

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