New UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley wants to get back in the Octagon soon. And he knows exactly who he wants to fight: Nick Diaz.

Woodley said in a post-fight interview that he wants a "money" fight against Diaz, who will be coming off suspension in two days.

"I have been in this game for awhile. I am an OG. I want to make the big dough," Woodley said.

Woodley knocked out Robbie Lawler to win the title Saturday night at UFC 201. UFC 202 is in three weeks and is headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz.

It's highly unlikely that Nick Diaz, Nate's older brother, would give Diaz a title shot in his first fight back since suspension.

But Woodley can keep on hoping. What's more likely? Woodley will have to fight UFC No. 1 contender Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson later in the year.
