Speaking to MMAFighting's Ariel Helwani, he said: 'If the Irish boy wants to try for his third belt, I will be there.

Although Covington was the aggressor, dos Anjos was landing the cleaner shots, including several to the body.

Covington's most recent performance - a three-round decision over Demian Maia - was arguably one of his ugliest in the UFC.

"It's kind of frustrating because I beat the former champ, and I was hoping to fight (Woodley)", dos Anjos said. "I'm a very competitive guy, and once I step inside the Octagon, I'm a cold-blooded fighter; I don't bring any emotions with me".
