On Friday, UFC president Dana White confirmed that the victor of the upcoming bout between Lawler and dos Anjos would be next in line to face welterweight champion Tyron Woodley while speaking at the UFC 217 pre-fight press conference in Toronto. This news was announced by the UFC on Thursday morning. He surrendered his title to current champ Tyron Woodley in June 2016, but has since rebounded with a decision win over Donald Cerrone in July.

Dos Anjos (27-9) is on a two-fight win streak, besting Neil Magny via submission and Tarec Saffiedine since moving up to welterweight after a run at lightweight that included a title-winning performance vs. Anthony Pettis. Now 2-0 at welterweight, Dos Anjos, like Lawler, stands out as one of the division's premier contenders.

To say UFC is backloading its fight schedule is an understatement. Does the victor fight Tyron Woodley next?
