Woodley wants Diaz or St-Pierre next

New welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who defeated Robbie Lawler via a knockout in the first round at UFC 201 on Saturday night, is hoping for a big-money fight against either Nick Diaz or Georges St-Pierre and then retire. 

Speaking to media after his victory in Atlanta, Georgia, Woodley (16-3) told BloodyElbow.com's Anton Tabuena that he wanted to make money in his next bouts.

"I think Nick Diaz comes off suspension in two days. I would love to fight him at UFC 202," Woodley said. 

"I think he deserves it. He's a guy who's been around the sport for a long time, puts a lot of butts in the seats, sells a lot of pay-per-views.

"Or I would like to fight Georges St-Pierre in New York City. Stephen Thompson said he wanted to fight Robbie Lawler. 

"He said it was a better matchup, fans would be excited to watch. He'll get an opportunity for that fight."
