Demian Maia and Tyron Woodley both spoke after Maia’s win over Jorge Masvidal at UFC 211 (via MMAjunkie about a potential fight between them. The highlights are below:

Woodley on a possible fight with Maia: “As we say at Roufusport at the end of practice, ‘They think they want some, but they don’t really want none.’ You guys have to recognize I have the highest takedown defense in the entire welterweight division, (and) second overall in the UFC. I’ve fought the Andre Galvaos of the world and I’ve also fought the Jake Shields. He’ll have to pack a lunch if he thinks he’s going to jump on my back like that and take me down like he did Jorge Masvidal and Carlos Condit.”

Maia on the fight: “I feel, Tyron, now it’s time for us to meet. Before it was postponed a lot when you fought ‘Wonderboy’ (Thompson), and then you fought ‘Wonderboy’ again. Now I’m ready, and I hope you give me the chance. Thanks.”
