Raphael Assuncao Wins PNG

“I hope they give me the title shot. I want to fight T.J. Dillashaw next. He said he deserved to win the first fight, so it’s the perfect finale. T.J. dominated him for five rounds and even got the TKO in the end. I will never demerit Barao, but I deserve to fight (for the title). My fight with T.J. was way more competitive.”

Having just beaten the new UFC bantamweight champion, ATT’s Raphael Assuncao tells MMAFighitng.com that he believes he deserves the next shot.

The two last fought last October, with Assuncao taking the victory. Had it not been for an injury, Raphael would have been facing Barao last weekend.
