Rafael Dos Anjos Challenges Dillon Danis To Big-Money ‘Winner Takes All’ Fight

The war of words continues between these two fighters.

The post Rafael Dos Anjos Challenges Dillon Danis To Big-Money ‘Winner Takes All’ Fight appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Rafael Dos Anjos challenges the training partner of former UFC lightweight and featherweight champ Conor McGregor to a fight that will be up for some big money.

Leading Up

The feud between RDA and Dillon Danis all started after the former UFC lightweight champion had some harsh comments about the UFC 229 brawl. RDA took to his official Twitter account where he called Danis a “nobody.” This led to Danis responding to RDA by challenging the former UFC champion to a fight.

Rafael Dos Anjos Challenges

Now, with Danis being serious about, RDA decided to take it one step further by offering a formal challenge. This includes putting big money on the line. He wrote the following on Twitter:

“Why don’t we do like you said to Kevin Lee? I put 100k you put 100k I can go to your gym or you come to my, we jump in the cage with no time whoever walks out take the 200k #yourmove.”

History

For those who may not remember, this feud has some history behind it as they have beefed before through the power of social media. Dos Anjos was supposed to defend the UFC lightweight title against McGregor in 2016. However, this fight got nixed once RDA pulled out with an injury. It would lead to Eddie Alvarez getting the title from Dos Anjos and McGregor later beat him at UFC 205.

Once Upon A Time

Danis recently brought up how Kevin Lee told MMAjunkie Radio that a $100,000 jiu-jitsu match with him was planned. This never happened though. However, Danis didn’t forget about it and brought the talk to life.

“You said you tapped me in a straight roll so I challenged you to show the world what you said was true while making 100k, I see a scared man here backing away from his words now bow down to the king of Jiu Jitsu.”

Dillon Danis fires back at former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos after RDA had some harsh comments about the UFC 229 brawl.

The Incident

This came hours after Danis was involved in the wild brawl that took place Saturday’s UFC 229 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada after Khabib Nurmagomedov beat Conor McGregor by fourth-round neck crank.

It’s well known that Nurmagomedov jumped the cage after the title fight that saw him leap off the apron and went right after McGregor cornerman Danis. It’s been documented that Danis was egging him on and Khabib went for his chance. Back to RDA, he took to his official Twitter account where he called Danis a “nobody.”

RDA Comments

The attack that includes Nurmagomedov’s actions, as well as three of his teammates being involved, currently being investigated by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC). RDA wrote the following:

“This guy Dillan Dennis he is nobody, he just suck Conor’s balls and hide behind him, that’s his job. He never going to make it, be on Conor’s corner is his career highlight.”

Dillon Danis Fires Back

This led to Danis responding to RDA by challenging the former UFC champion to a fight, which appears to take place in the street. Here is what the Bellator fighter and top Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitor wrote back:

“let’s fight then fuck commissions let’s meet up and fight you pussy little bitch you give every fight you no heart rat.”

RDA Wants In On Potential UFC 165-Pound Division

UFC fighters continue to campaign for a 165-pound weight class.

The post RDA Wants In On Potential UFC 165-Pound Division appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Rafael dos Anjos is on board with the UFC adding another weight class.

For so long the mixed martial arts (MMA) community has debated on whether or not the UFC should add more divisions. It seems that on the fighters’ side of things, they’d prefer more options as to what weight they can fight.

Fighters such as Kevin Lee, Dustin Poirier, and now, Rafael dos Anjos would like a weight class in between 155 and 170 pounds. “RDA” took to Twitter recently and said he’s down for a 165-pound weight class in the UFC:

“If make 165lbs division you can count on me for that run.”

This comes several days out from Dustin Poirier making a rather interesting proposition. He and Nate Diaz will meet at UFC 230 in November. The card is missing a main event, however. Poirier attempted to elevate himself.

He suggested on Twitter that he and Diaz compete for the inaugural 165-pound title in their fight. Given there are no stars available to headline UFC 230 (or so we’re told), and Diaz is a big name, adding a title to Diaz vs. Poirier is certainly main event-worthy.

That hype only got taken to a new level last night when Diaz claimed he was fighting for the new 165-pound title and Poirier reiterate it. UFC President Dana White rebuffed that notion – for now.

The UFC has shown little interest in implementing new weight classes, however, it’s an interesting possibility given the current state of UFC 230’s card.
