Dos Anjos: “If he thinks he’s going to knock me out, let’s see”

“I think everybody talks, but then once it’s just me and him in the cage. I have 30 fights and more experience than he does, and it’s going to make the difference. If he thinks he’s going to knock me out, let’s see. I’m going to answer this question in March 14.”

Rafael dos Anjos on getting title shot: “After the fight against Khabib, I stopped thinking about the belt. I was so worried about it before that fight, if I lose, how much will I be back of the line. Now, I’ve just been training, doing my job. I wasn’t thinking about it. Then I got it and I was so happy.”

 dos Anjos on going from a good fighter to great fighter? “I think in 2012, I moved here, and everything started changing. I focused on my training. There was not so much distraction as in Brazil. I have better training partners. When I moved here, I said if I want to be champion, I’ve got to train with the best.”
