Even if you think Rafael dos Anjos will end Conor McGregor’s unforgettable, undefeated run in the UFC, chances are you’re not picking him to quit against the lightweight champ. But, RDA’s coach, the renowned Rafael Cordeiro, thinks it’s possible.
The featherweight champion will face RDA in the headliner of UFC 196, which will take place on March 5th. Although many betting lines have McGregor as the favorite, there are plenty of folks who believe RDA’s pressure and top game may be too much for the 145 champ.
“The way I see it, Rafael will do just fine. He’s very excited about this fight and will drag McGregor to deep waters. He has never faced anybody like Rafael. We believe he can beat Conor up badly. It may even be the first time Conor will ask for a fight to be stopped.”
That would truly be something. Even McGregor doubters have to admit it’s hard to imagine him quitting though no?
