Former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos was supposed to fight former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor back at UFC 196, but was pulled from the fight due to injury. The two were then reportedly going to fight earlier this year at UFC 224, but the McGregor bus attack also ruined those plans.
The two have never came to blows in the Octagon, but that hasn’t stopped RDA from taking shots at McGregor from time to time.
Dillon Danis is a longtime training partner of McGregor and RDA would take aim at him, with that shot being taken via Twitter:
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.— Rafael dos Anjos (@RdosAnjosMMA) October 7, 2018
Although the post came after the huge brawl that Danis was involved in at UFC 229, it is unknown at this time if what RDA is saying about Danis is related to the post-fight ruckus in any way.
Danis would get word of what RDA said and would take to Twitter to issue a challenge to Dos Anjos:
let’s fight then fuck commissions let’s meet up and fight you pussy little bitch you give every fight you no heart rat https://t.co/77CnDtvODq— Dillon Danis (@dillondanis) October 7, 2018
RDA has responded to Danis and has accepted Danis' challenge to a fight, even mocking Danis' relationship with former two division UFC champion Conor McGregor in a series of tweets:
