February 12, 2016 1:41 am by Russell Ess

One of the most historic fights in UFC history in less than a month away.

On March 5, UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will have a chance to make history and become the first fighter to simultaneously hold two division’s titles. However, his opponent is no easy task. UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos is ever confident in his skillset and his abilities to beat McGregor.

Check out this photo from dos Anjos’ strength and condition coach with the caption reading:
“March 5 can’t come soon enough for the Champ Rafael Dos Anjos.. In shape ready for war.. @rdosanjosmma Don’t bother with the steroid comments he’s been tested randomly 5 times. Haters gonna hate, lovers gonna love. #demolish #dosanjosmcgregor #ufc #ufc196 #trainingcamp #trainhardfighteasy #speedofsport #speedkills #speedtimingpowerprecisionstamina #wod #abday”

McGregor who has had a knack for predicting his own fights has said, ““I believe I will dust Rafael inside one minute. He is a slower, sloppier version of Aldo. He’s like a bum version of Aldo. I believe, in absolutely everything, I believe inside one minute, I will dust him. I will exit the contest, fresh. I will cash the check, and I will sign the new contract for UFC 200, at the brand new MGM, and we’ll go again.”

Dos Anjos has his own thoughts on their fight and said, “I think I can beat this guy anywhere. If I fight a jiu-jitsu match with him, I’ll beat him. If I fight a karate match with him, I’ll beat him. If I fight a K-1 rules with him, I’ll beat him. I think I can beat him anywhere.”
