Rafael dos Anjos ready to fight Islam Makhachev at welterweight

If reigning UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev decides to try his hand at welterweight one day, Rafael dos Anjos is ready to finish the unfinished business and welcome his failed rival into the octagon.

“I will return to lightweight only for special fights,” Brazilian MMA Junkie is quoted as saying. “I don’t plan to fight for the title in this division anymore, to be honest. There are a couple of guys that I will fight under certain circumstances, but at the moment I have a fight with Brian Barberena, and I’m going to stay at welterweight.

“A couple of times Islam and I were scheduled to fight, but I got injured, and then he refused to fight in the week of the fight. We had a chance to fight at welterweight, he first volunteered, I agreed, and he refused, and as a result, Renato Moicano took the fight. We could close the issue and fight in the welterweight or lightweight category, but I will not be very upset if this fight never takes place. ”

Recall that the fight in the welterweight category between Rafael dos Ans and Brian Barberena will take place on December 3 at UFC on ESPN 42 in Orlando.
