UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley is expected to face the winner of that bout, but he feels that RDA got played into accepting the fight in the first place.
Woodley expressed his thoughts via a post on twitter:
--Bruh -- Sad to see fighters being played. I accepted to fight @RdosAnjosMMA July made# be June if I was given more time to let them know if im good. He fighting Qweefington for no reason ------ https://t.co/lWWt2RBra1— Tyron T-Wood Woodley (@TWooodley) April 22, 2018
Dos Anjos got word of what the champion was stating and would take to Twitter for a pair of statements of his own:
