Rafael Dos Anjos Takes His Opportunity To Slate Conor McGregor For His Decision To ‘Run’

Even in his darkest hour, struggling to digest his first UFC defeat, Conor McGregor was able to come up with a cracking line with which to silence his detractors.

In the immediate aftermath of McGregor’s loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196, Jose Aldo and Rafael dos Anjos had took a couple of shots at the downed Dubliner via social media.

Hours later however, McGregor cut the Brazilian bruisers down to size with a scything comment contained in a statement that he released through Facebook.

“Aldo you are a pussy. Dos Anjos you are a pussy. When the history books are written, I showed up. You showed up on Twitter,” wrote “The Notorious”.

At the UFC 200 press conference on Friday night though, things were a little different. This time McGregor, regardless of the reasons, was the no-show, while Dos Anjos and Aldo were the model employees.

Dos Anjos didn’t miss the opportunity to remind the world of this fact and took a little pop at McGregor for his refusal to attend the media event in the process.

“Everybody has, like Dana said, I was supposed to be in Singapore training now, I cancel all my trip to be here, I’m leaving for Singapore tomorrow and you know, I think Conor find a way to run away from Diaz again”.

Dos Anjos famously withdrew from a scheduled lightweight title defence against the Irish fighter only days in advance of the aforementioned UFC 196 event due to a foot injury, necessitating the fateful employment of Diaz as his replacement.

Before Diaz was drafted though, Aldo had been offered the opportunity to gain revenge over McGregor for his December defeat, but the former featherweight king turned down the short-notice assignment.
