Dos Anjos is no longer concerning himself with Mystic Mac and is eyeing adult another run towards a welterweight pretension shot after his essential feat over Lee, that snapped a two-fight losing streak.
‘My entrance in a UFC, we mislaid dual in a row,’ RDA pronounced after a fight. ‘Before we changed adult a division, we mislaid dual in a row, and I’m not gonna distortion to we guys. we was underneath a lot of pressure. But it’s good to be behind in a winning path.
‘I see a halt champion [Colby Covington] will quarrel a champion [Kamaru Usman] right now, probably. I’m only open. I’m not adhering too most with a rankings right now, though we have this enterprise in me.
‘I wish to be champion one day and if we don’t trust that I’m not gonna be a champion, I’m gonna stop fighting. I’m gonna quit this sport. we still trust we can make it and I’m going to work. I’m operative tough on it.’
