Rafael dos Anjos weigh-ins

If there is one thing that UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos can talk about more than Conor McGregor, it is his own native language. The Brazilian who has been getting flack from McGregor for moving from Brazil and living in the United States to train, had a moment where he won the exchange of words over the outspoken Irish showman during the UFC 197 Press Conference.

McGregor said, ““I see a man who, although he is Brazilian, does not represent the Brazilian people like he should. He brings the name of Brazil down. So I will bring the name of Brazil back up once again. Viva la Brasilia!”

Dos Anjos replied, “First of all this guy is speaking Spanish. In Brazil, we speak Portuguese.” Dos Anjos told McGregor, “So, learn Portuguese first.”

Dos Anjos won the exchange of words there, but not for long as McGregor fired back cutting off dos Anjos referencing his Spanish to his outfit like he was dressed as “El Chapo in his prime,” to which McGregor fans supported with some cheers and laughs.

Talk is one thing that we know Conor McGregor will always deliver. Who do you think will win the actual fight in the Octagon? Share your thoughts on the fight in the comments!
