McGregor challenged by UFC ace Dos Anjos who tells him ‘f*** this retirement s***’ and claims he’s the man to fight – The Sun
CONOR MCGREGOR has been challenged by former UFC rival Rafael dos Anjos who had urged him "f*** this retirement s***."
The Notorious stunned the sporting world when he announced he was walking away from MMA for good last week.
The Irish star later revealed that he made the decision to retire from the Octagon as it does not "excite" him anymore.
McGregor has since been enjoying his break from fighting after releasing videos of himself feeding fish and playing golf.
But the 31-year-old's old rival Rafael dos Anjos wants to settle their previous score before the Irishman hangs up the gloves for good.
The former UFC lightweight champion took to social media to challenge McGregor to a fight at 155, 165 or 170lbs.
He tweeted: “Let’s do it Conor McGregor. If you’re looking for a fight I’m the guy. 155, 165, or 170. You know I’m always game. F*ck this retirement shit. Dana White, Sean Shelby, Chael Sonnen, UFC.”
The pair were previously set to meet for the lightweight title at UFC 196 in March 2016 before RDA was forced to withdraw due to a broken foot.
Rafael then surrendered his lightweight title to Eddie Alvarez, who later dropped the belt to McGregor, before moving up to welterweight.
McGregor meanwhile had previously stated his intentions to fight three times in 2020 following his impressive win over Donald Cerrone.
The former two-division champion has walked out away from the Octagon with an impressive record of 22 wins and four defeats.
It is the third time he has decided to step down after he announced his retirement in 2016 and 2019 – but returned both times.
