Rafael dos Anjos calls out Conor McGregor following UFC Orlando win
The two never fought when they were at the top of the 155-pound weight class, but it’s a fight that Dos Anjos still wants.
The Brazilian returned to the welterweight division on Saturday in the UFC Orlando co-main event and picked up a submission win over Bryan Barberena. During his post-fight interview, Dos Anjos called out McGregor.
“I think I have the right to call someone out,” Dos Anjos said. “I want to call out Conor McGregor.
“Seven years ago I earned this fight beating Donald Cerrone. He came up a division. We were supposed to fight. I broke my foot, but now here I am,” continued Dos Anjos. “He has a couple of months to clean his body of all the sh*t he’s taking, and I’ll see you in July.”
