"I think I'm ready [for a welterweight championship shot]," said MacDonald post-fight. "I respect the UFC and the decision they make. Whatever they plan to do, I just want them to know I'm ready. One day the belt will be mine."
Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown meet at UFC on FOX 12 in late July to determine the number one contender.
During the fight, MacDonald was the aggressor the whole time. He frequently placed Woodley against the Octagon's cage with punches and kicks to the body. Woodley never looked comfortable out there.
"He was one of the biggest threats in my career and it was an honor to fight him," said MacDonald.
MacDonald improves to 17-2 with the latest win. He holds a two fight win streak this year, taking a decision from Demian Maia at UFC 170 in February.
Woodley is 3-2 since joining the UFC in early 2013. A few months back at UFC 171, Woodley beat former interim champ Carlos Condit due to an injury.
UFC 174 hailed from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada. For complete results, please click here.
