After dismantling Robbie Lawler at UFC on FOX 26, Rafael dos Anjos has made it clear he intends to wait for a bout with Tyron Woodley, rather than fight Colby Covington.

Dos Anjos out struck a very game Lawler on Saturday night, and earned a clear cut, decision win. Leading up to the fight, UFC President Dana White had said that the winner would advance to a bout with the champion Woodley.

Following the event, Covington posted the tweet below:

When asked to comment on Colvington’s call out at the post-fight presser, RDA said this (quote via MMA Fighting):

“That guy has 6,000 followers on Twitter. He’s just talking crap about people and he showed nothing on the division. He beat nobody.

“He beat Demian Maia, but Demian Maia looked really bad when he fought Demian, and I have no comments on that guy.”

Dos Anjos has won three in a row now, since the former lightweight champ moved up to the welterweight division.
