Khabib Nurmagomedov has predicted that Anthony Pettis would lose to Rafael dos Anjos, and shortly after his pick came to reality, the top lightweight contender took to twitter to take shots at the former champion. Nurmagomedov congratulated Dos Anjos as well, and seeing that he already beat the current champion, his confidence is probably riding high right now.
Check out his immediate UFC 185 reactions on twitter:

Nurmagomedov is undefeated in 22 fights, and already has a 2014 win over the current champion. He has been out due to injury since the victory over Dos Anjos, but is currently set to make a return on a title eliminator against Donald Cerrone at UFC 187.
