While Conor McGregor has never let a championship fight go into the championship rounds, Rafael dos Anjos’ coach believes that will change at UFC 196.
The pair are slated to fight for the UFC lightweight championship in the main event of UFC 196 on March 5th. Prior to the fight dos Anjos has stated that he believes he will finish McGregor in either the 2nd or 3rd round, and fans will see McGregor “break like a girl.”
Despite that, dos Anjos’ coach Rafael Cordeiro believes that McGregor will make it to the championship rounds, and then maybe even ASK THE REF to stop the fight.
He spoke to The Mirror:
“The fight against Jose Aldo was unfortunately a quick fight. We knew if it had gone to the second, third and fourth, we knew Jose Aldo could have beat him but unfortunately, it was a knockout but a fight is a fight and we are going to do everything to make sure Rafa raises his arm at the end of the fight and we are going to work hard for that.”
“Maybe it’s going to be the first time that [McGregor] is going to ask to stop the fight.”
Quite the prediction…
How do you see the fight going?
