Conor McGregor earlier in the week claimed in his Instagram feed, that he was scheduled to fight for the welterweight title at UFC 224.
The plan was to book him versus Rafael Dos Anjos for the Interim Welterweight title. However, due to unforeseen circumstances the plan fell through.
The King of the Division, Tyron Woodley, however has a stern message for anyone coming for his throne.
“I kind of want to legitimately clean the division,” Woodley said.
“I wouldn’t mind fighting RDA [Rafael dos Anjos], Colby [Covington], [Kamaru] Usman, [Darren] Till, and at that point, unless another prospect emerges, I’ve cleaned out the division and I’m the greatest welterweight of all time at that point.
Then it’s time to go up to 185 [pounds], and I want that belt and I want to defend.
He also had a special warning for UFC’s former featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

The last time they saw eye to eye was at the UFC 205 weigh ins.
Tyron Woodley, who is nursing a shoulder injury, is expected to be back in August, and could possibly feature at UFC’s Los Angeles PPV.
