Rafael Dos Anjos Not Worried About A Title Shot Right Now
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.07.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Rafael dos Anjos (20-7 MMA, 9-5 UFC) said that he's not concerned with getting a title fight right now. He will fight Jason High (18-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) tonight at UFC Fight Night 42. It's less than two months since his last fight, a unanimous decision loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

On fighting again so soon: "Since I wasn't hurt, right after that fight I told my manager I wished to come back as soon as possible to stay in a fighting rhythm. I don't wish to be idle again. While on a short vacation, I was offered a bout in five weeks and I emphatically said I'd take it. I'm eager to fight again. I didn't feel I really got to fight when I faced Khabib."

On his desire to fight: "I'll agree to face anyone who can make 155. The UFC gave me a chance to come back quickly and I'm loving it. If Cain Velasquez steps up and makes 155, then I'll face him, too. I don't choose my opponents. I'm just concerned in doing my job and fighting for real. I always want to put on a great show for the fans."

On getting a title shot: "A shot at the belt will come naturally. I'm simply thinking about winning each fight. I don't obsess about the belt. I'm 29 and I feel the belt will come sooner or later."
