Rafael dos Anjos, at one point, was considered as one of the best UFC fighters and was ranked amongst the best pound for pound fighters.
He was the reigning UFC Lightweight champion from 2015 to 2016. In his short reign, he defended the belt once before losing it to Eddie Alvarez in July 2016.
Anjos had an opportunity to face then Featherweight champion Conor McGregor at UFC 196. However, due to an injury, the fight never happened.
Now he once again wants his shot. Even though Conor recently retired from fighting.
Rafael Dos Anjos is coming off a two-fight skid and has managed to go 1-4 in his last five outings.
Conor McGregor currently stands with a record of 21-4, which includes three title reigns spanning two weight classes.
But for now, he’s still retired.
Just shows how McGregor is still very relevant, and is someone people want to face. And he’s the face of the UFC. Dana White needs to get him back in the Octagon as soon as humanly possible.
