From the time he made a decision to relocate to the welterweight division, Dos Anjos has been laser focused on joining Randy Couture, BJ Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre as the only fighters to capture UFC titles in two different divisions. But The Champ was more interested in a "Money Fight" with the lightweight fighter Nate Diaz.

In a stacked UFC 225 card this weekend from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois the UFC gives us title fights in 2 weight classes. I come this far on this. The dos Anjos-Covington interim title fight is the co-main event.

One hardly could blame Rafael dos Anjos if he's a little unnerved about where he fits in welterweight champion Tyron Woodley's apparent personal pecking order.

This is the first time an official source had confirmed about this proposed fight and it was popularly assumed that Conor was to fight the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov next. When it's all said and done, I did everything I could do there. In a fight with Colby Covington, I expect Rafael Dos Anjos to attack the front leg of the two time All-American Wrestler with low kicks in an attempt to slow his takedowns. I'm not really concerned with who's ready, who's next.

Colby "Chaos Covington is 13-1 and will enter the cage at -110 saturday night, riding a 5 fight win streak inside the octagon and quickly becoming one of the most disliked fighters on the UFC roster".

Woodley's last featured in a unanimous decision win over Demian Maia in July previous year. Dos Anjos barely catches Covington with a knee strike before getting taken down, Dos Anjos gets up and separates from Covington. He wants to fight in July or August with these three guys.

"I think people do whatever they choose to promote themselves and he chose that way, talking about somebody else's country to promote his fight and promote himself", he added in regards to Covington's various comments. "I'm sure I will win".

Covington's 29th victory of his professional mixed martial arts career saw him set up a welterweight title unification fight with 170lbs champion Tyron Woodley, has been sat on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.
