Rafael dos Anjos on McGregor fight: 'I want to fight someone coming off a win'

Rafael dos Anjos answered some Twitter questions last Tuesday about what he thinks of a possible fight against Conor McGregor. His answer was short, but powerful.

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.

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.

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.

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.
