Rafael Dos Anjos Calls Out Lightweight Title Contender

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.

Grant has pulled out of UFC 164 and UFC on FOX 9 due to the concussion. He won’t return until he’s 100 percent healthy and there’s exact date for that.
