  • Tickets on sale this week for UFC's January return to Charlotte with Brunson'Jacare rematch

The bout was the headline act at the UFC on Fox 26 event in Canada and further enhances dos Anjos' (28-9, 17-7 UFC) burgeoning reputation. In the card's exciting main event, former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos asserted himself as one of the welterweight division's top contenders, defeating former titleholder Robbie Lawler with a dominant, unanimous decision win.

The fight looked as good as over when dos Anjos unleashed his astonishing flurry of shots in the second round but Lawler somehow managed to come through the carnage and out the other side.

Woodley, though, could be dos Anjos' next opponent in the Octagon ring when he gets back healthy, not that the current champion is all that too afraid of the potential challenger.

"I think when (Woodley) fought Demian (Maia), he was anxious about takedowns only", dos Anjos said. In my opinion, I just beat the toughest guy in the division.

Lawler had no answer to dos Anjos' striking power. When he fought (Stephen) "Wonderboy" (Thompson), he was anxious only about stand-up.

On Colby Covington taking a shot at him for not finishing Lawler: "I have no comments about that guy, man". I think with me, he's got to worry about everywhere. He's just talking crap about people.

"I want the UFC belt", dos Anjos, who spoke to Woodley post-fight on Saturday, said.
