UFC lightweight champion, Rafael dos Anjos, took some time off his busy schedule yesterday to answer some fan questions on his Twitter account (h/t Portal do Vale Tudo). At around the same time Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo were going at it at the press conference in Dublin, RDA was giving his opinion on the eventual bout between the two men.
@adrian_peel @ufc @lorenzofertitta @TheNotoriousMMA I want to fight someone coming off a win not a loss— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) March 31, 2015
And while "The Notorious" has taken a few stabs at Dos Anjos, saying he would take his belt right after he is done with Aldo, RDA doesn't appear to be impressed.
@battlerapfan90 he's saying that to promote but he know better than to come to lightweight— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) March 31, 2015
When a fan asked Dos Anjos what he he would do if Conor made a grab for his belt, he summarized his opinion in one sentence.
@FubarMMA @ufc @lorenzofertitta I would put him to sleep— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) March 31, 2015
For now, Rafael dos Anjos waits for the winner of the fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Donald Cerrone at UFC 187, which will determine his first title challenger.
