Rafael dos Anjos is feeling confident heading into his UFC 196 fight against Conor McGregor. In an interview with the MMA Hour, dos Anjos spoke about his upcoming UFC Lightweight Championship fight against McGregor.
“If I have an opportunity to finish, I will finish, but I will feel him first. I want to hit him first a couple of times. I want him to feel my power, you know, because his thing is always having such a good time in the Octagon. Everything that he’s predicting has been happening, but I think this time his crystal ball is a little blurry. I think he’s not seeing well, and he’s going to feel the difference. I’m going to show him the bad part of the Octagon. I went through the good part and the bad part, but now I’m going to introduce him to the bad part.”
dos Anjos predicts he will end the fight in two or three rounds.
“My prediction is, I’m going to win for sure,” he said. “I don’t see how this guy can beat me. But, a prediction — this fight will not be five rounds. It’s going to be maybe three or two rounds. This guy, he’s not going to be able handle me for more than two rounds. He’s going to break. He’s going to break like a girl.”
