UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos is not at all concerned about Conor McGregor’s threats to move up a weight class and claim the 155-pound strap.
“RDA” recently told FOX Sports that McGregor is just a ‘small man’ who he would easily crush:
“I don’t care about (Conor) McGregor. He’s a small guy, I would crush him. If he wants to take my title I would love to crush him, but right now I don’t think he’s a big challenge. There are bigger names to beat.”
The lightweight champ continued:
“I have honor on my belt. Not a fake belt. I have a real belt because I fought against the best. That’s why I think for me it’s most important. Right now my focus is on this Cerrone fight, but then I want Khabib (Nurmagomedov) because I want to clean that loss off my record. More important is to fight against the best. You do it the hard way, you can’t do it the easy way. That’s what’s most important for me. I go back home, before I go to sleep, I put my head on my pillow, I know I fought against the best, that’s the most important thing to me.”
Do you think “RDA” would crush McGregor if “Notorious” moved up to the lightweight division? Sound off Penn Nation!
