Woodley: I want Rory MacDonald next

source: sherdog.com

"I want to fight [Rory MacDonald]. If anything happens with Carlos Condit, God forbid, or something happens with that fight, I already told Dana White. Nobody's calling him out for a reason, because he's freaking unreal. But if you wait, you think he's going to stop getting better? In two years, this kid's probably going to be one of the best fighters in the game. I'd rather knock his butt off now like I knocked off [Tarec Saffiedine's] just before he got the Strikeforce gold.

Everybody's been Tweeting about [Demian Maia]. I don't mind the fight. If he fights me the way he fought Fitch, then it's not that dangerous of a fight. He just took him down and jumped on his back. I think Demian Maia's tough. He just didn't really impress me very much. I think if you match us up, it's going to be a boring fight and we're both going to get hella flak. I would rather fight [Nick] Diaz, Rory MacDonald, Condit. I would rather fight one of those guys, to be honest. They're going to bring out the fight. They're going to make me fight harder."

To be fair he did handle Jay a lot more impressive than Rory did imo..I think it would be a lot more competitive than others think.

Woodley don't want any of MacDonald. He would get uppercutted and bodyblowed worse than what Marquardt did to him.

He probably needs another win before getting one of the contenders, but I love the attitude. He's basically stating he's ready to fill-in if needed and he's also smart in believing Rory is only getting better.

Twood is way athletic than Fitch. Way better wrestler too. Hes a horrible match for Rory.

Not necessarily a Woodley fan myself, but he's beginning to win me over.
