Rafael dos Anjos Wants Fight Against T.J. Grant

UFC lightweight contender, Rafael dos Anjos spoke this week about how he would love the opportunity to face off against T.J. Grant.

Speaking via sources, dos Anjos said this regarding the matter:

“One more win and I should fight for the title. I won my last five fights. I’m in the UFC for five years, so I deserve a shot at the title after my next win. T.J. had two title shots and got injured twice. I think it’s too little for him now, I believe it would be fair if he has to do another fight first, and a fight against me makes sense. It would be a good fight, and I would be one step closer to the title. I had some little injures to heal so I didn’t train too much recently. I’m training harder now, but they didn’t say anything about my next fight yet. I believe my next fight will be between January and February.”

On the possibility of a fight with Anthony Pettis, the current champion of the division, dos Anjos said:

“I wouldn’t let him get comfortable in the cage. I would do the right strategy, closing the distance. After what I saw in his loss to Clay Guida, that’s the game to beat him. I would impose my strategy. That’s the key to win this fight, don’t let him like the fight. Things are going great now. It’s a matter of time before. My time will come.”
