With one more win, Rafael dos Anjos doesn’t see why anyone else deserves the next UFC lightweight title shot. T.J. Grant has missed out on two previous opportunities due to a recurring issue from a concussion.
“T.J. had two title shots and got injured twice,” said Anjos to MMA Fighting. “I think it’s too little for him now, I believe it would be fair if he has to do another fight first and a fight against me makes sense. It would be a good fight and I would be one step closer to the title.”
Of Anjos’ last five wins, four have come via decision. This year he’s defeated Evan Dunham and Donald Cerrone.
