Should RDA have to defeat #1 ranked Stephen Thompson before getting a title shot?
Yes 5 42%
No 4 33%
He should have to defeat a different top ranked welterweight 3 25%

With a convincing five-round unanimous decision win over Robbie Lawler in the main event of UFC on FOX 26, Rafael dos Anjos put himself in prime position to be the next challenger for Tyron Woodley’s welterweight title.

The champ is currently on the sidelines after undergoing shoulder surgery, and while dos Anjos may be willing to wait for his return, another 170-pound star believes that dos Anjos still has work to do before being considered the No. 1 .

I put the third option because we don't need wonderboy vs Woodley 3 just yet and I'd like to see rda annihilate Colby Covington

That's why I put that 3rd option up. There's a couple others right up there, Colby being the main one, plus he's ranked #3 in the UFC.

Thompson is the uncrowned king, anyone getting a crack at the WW belt should have to go through him, no question about it.

Nobody wants to see Wonderboy vs Woodley 3, But Wonderboy did just put on a masterclass against Masvidal, which i thought was the most technical and high level 170 fight of the year.

Let RDA wait for Woodley. Book Wonderboy vs Colby. Ultimate good vs evil fight.

I voted yes because I would like to see RDA x Thompson & Till x Covington.

RDA and Thompson is the #1 title contender fight. Shelf woodley.

Let Till & Covington battle it out. This fight makes sense because two young and hungry contenders will get the loss and derail them for a short period clearing the division for the next possible contender. If Till or Covington wins, their next fight will be a #1 contender spot or could argue for the title with a dramatic finish.

The way Till's recently talking, it sounds like he still want to fight Mike Perry next.
