Rafael Dos Anjos: I Am No. 1 Contender Because “I’m Active”

Rafael dos Anjos has heard all the complaints regarding his move to the No. 1 contender role at lightweight.

Technically, dos Anjos and Khabib Nurmagomedov are tied for that top spot, but UFC president Dana White declared dos Anjos as the next challenger to Anthony Pettis’ reign. Earlier this year, Nurmagomedov claimed a decision over “RDA.”

Upon hearing the talk, dos Anjos took to Twitter to state his case for his ranking. Since the loss, he has won three straight, including a win over Nate Diaz.
