With the UFC’s recent announcement that Rafael dos Anjos will be facing Robbie Lawler, RDA took to twitter campaigning that a title be on the line.
The former UFC lightweight champion thinks that Woodley, who is planning to not return to action until next year, has taken enough time off and wants the UFC to put up an interim belt.
The UFC welterweight champion in Tyron Woodley responded with actual facts as to why this idea is ludicrous… And then it got ugly.
The former UFC lightweight champion RDA then took to his instagram with a much lengthier response to Woodley’s response, and it wasn’t pretty.
Here’s the breakdown:
Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos kicked things off with,
“Am’I the only one that thinks that this fight should be for a interim title? Since the champ is out until next year?”
Am'I the only one that thinks that this fight should be for a interim title? Since the champ is out until next year?

And then Woodley’s reply:
“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”

The RDA took to his instagram to form a lengthier, far more insulting response to Woodley.
“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”
