If dos Anjos lands some of his outstanding kicks to the body, however, and spurns Covington's shots, he'll have his way on the outside.
While a couple of those victories were lackluster, Woodley still found a way to retain his championship, and in this sport that's what counts when all is said an done.
McGregor won the featherweight belt in December 2015 with a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo, then added the lightweight strap in November 2016 with a second-round TKO of Eddie Alvarez. Former Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos will get his chance at joining the short list of UFC fighters to hold gold in two different weight classes, as he takes on Colby Covington for the UFC's Interim Welterweight Championship.
UFC 225 takes place this weekend, and among the highlights of a blockbuster card sees Rafael dos Anjos take on Colby Covington for the interim welterweight strap.
That being said, in Woodley's estimation, it doesn't matter who the next challenger is, only thing that matters is he'll be ready for whoever as he confidently stated to MMA Junkie. Covington, at least, didn't seem to take it to heart.

"What I can say, there are people in the entertainment business, whether it's WWE, whether it's Marvel, or the UFC, that people love to hate", Waterson explained when speaking to FloCombat ahead of her return to the broadcast desk on FOX for UFC 225. But I think at that point, you make a fight. Whoever they got for me to fight at this time, come get this work. He wants to fight in July or August with these three guys.
The top-10-ranked UFC strawweight contender rarely has a bad word to say about anyone, and throughout her career, she's avoided the kind of heated rivalries that are spurred on by words as much as action. "You have to face the challenges of your division". "RDA" said that talk isn't getting to him thanks in large part to his experience in the fight game. He looks renewed in his quest for another UFC Title, and is riding a 3 fight win streak since losing to Tony Ferguson.
And once he takes care of business against infamous Brazil-basher Covington, he'll have another title around his waist, and that should set up a fight with Woodley whether he wants it or not.
