“The main reason that I accepted this fight was because I wanted to fight close to the shot for the title fight. I wanted to be in shape around this time.”

“He’s a really good fighter. He has good stand-up, a good submission game as well, so that’s why he’s champion. But I think I have weapons to beat him. He’s a tough fight, but I always see some holes in his game and I’m looking forward to working on [them].”

“I’m always the underdog, I know that. But I didn’t surprise myself. When I got the opportunity to fight [Henderson], I knew I could beat him. And that’s what I did.”

During a recent sitdown with the media, Rafael dos Anjos discussed his upcoming fight against Nate Diaz and his aspirations to contend for UFC gold.
