While reports have emerged that indicate a boxing match between UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. is close to being finalized, UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos believes that he has unfinished business with McGregor.

The pair were initially slated to fight at UFC 196 for dos Anjos’ lightweight championship, however a broken foot forced RDA out of the bout. Ultimately, the UFC replaced RDA with Nate Diaz, and the rest is history!

RDA spoke to Combate to call out McGregor via Daily Star:

“In the future, I want to have super-fights. I want to go to the weight class above,” he told Combate.

“It Conor or it can be anyone. I ‘ve been wanting to have two belts , why not? This is something that already goes through my head. I fought in 77 kg and is something I will do in the future.”

“I’m 31 years old, if I can take this cut weight the most I will fight happier and I’ll fight better in a better mood then everything will improve.”

Seems like everyone wants a piece of Conor McGregor!
