Rafael dos Anjos really wants his following match being one that thrills him. It has actually been 6 years when the both fighter set to fight in UFC 196 a ‘champ vs. champ’ super-fight for the Brazilian’s light-weight belt back in March 2016. This was when dos Anjos ruled as the UFC light-weight champ, and also McGregor was the UFC featherweight champ. However, dos Anjos experienced a foot injury which concluded the fight cancelled. He was substituted by Nate Diaz, that surprised the whole world as a short-notice substitute when he sent McGregor.

” I believe the time that we dwell in today, that match would certainly make a lot of sense,” dos Anjos stated. “I got on a 16-month out. Conor shattered his leg and is returning in the summer season, I believe. That would certainly make good sense. The division is sort of insane today and also I assume that match would certainly make a lot of sense. … That would certainly be a big money match, obviously. We have a history, also. Like I said, I’m seeking names that make me motivate to go to the gym and train. It’s been a lot of years in this sport. I do not intend to battle names that do not fascinate me, that do not force me to head to the gym. I’m 37 years of ages. (I have actually) dealt with almost everyone in 2 divisions.”

“I have no worry trading blows with Conor,” dos Anjos stated. “I believe I have everything it takes. I’m quite confident in the standup. I understand he’s had a threatening game, yet I will certainly do my fight– simply mix it up. However I have nothing to worry to trade whatsoever.” dos Anjos added.

This comments he pointed out in post-fight interview soon after his UFC 272 win over Renato Moicano at T-Mobile Arena. Their match was disputed at a catchweight of 160 pounds as Moicano failed to have ample time to reduce to make the lightweight limitation. Dos Anjos resulted in beating Moicano by means of unanimous decision.
