Rafael dos Anjos is going to face Colby Covington in the UFC 225 co-main event and try to win a belt in his second weight class under the UFC banner. At one time, dos Anjos had been slated to face Conor McGregor, who has already won two belts in two different weight classes. If dos Anjos beats Covington, he thinks McGregor should try to make their fight finally happen.
“I think that fight could happen down the road. Once I get my second belt, I think he should try his third belt, maybe,” dos Anjos said with a wry smile on his face.
Dos Anjos spoke with reporters about McGregor and more at a luncheon ahead of his UFC 225 showdown with Covington.
