WATCH! Rafael dos Anjos training for fight with Conor McGregor

February 5, 2016 10:16 am by Evan Bell

Rafael dos Anjos’ UFC 196 title defense against Conor McGregor is rapidly approaching. The fight will be McGregor’s first at lightweight inside the Octagon, and with a win could see McGregor put in the UFC record books as the 3rd man to hold title belts in two weight classes.

Ahead of the fight McGregor has expressed interest in going up to welterweight if he defeats dos Anjos and challenging Robbie Lawler for the welterweight championship. While that may be getting a bit far ahead, we are now less than month away from UFC 196.

In the video above you can see Rafael dos Anjos, fresh off his 1st round TKO win over Donald Cerrone, working on his explosiveness. Check it out above!
