UFC 197: Conor McGregor Says He’ll “Dust” RDA in Under One Minute
By FCF Staff
After taking out the consensus, greatest featherweight of all time in just 13 seconds, Conor McGregor has made an extremely bold prediction, as his bout with Rafael dos Anjos nears.
McGregor will face the lightweight champion on March 5th at UFC 197, and recently the promotion held a press conference to promote the event. During the presser, the brash, featherweight champ said this (quote via MMA Fighting.com):
“I believe I will dust Rafael inside one minute,” McGregor said. “He is a slower, sloppier version of [Jose] Aldo. He’s like a bum version of Aldo. I believe in absolutely everything, I believe that inside one minute I will dust him. I will exit the contest fresh, I will cash the check, I will sign the next contract for UFC 200– the brand new MGM [arena] — and we’ll go again.”
Dos Anjos is coming off a quick, stoppage win over perennial contender Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 17 in December. The only man who has defeated the champion since 2011 is Khabib Nurmagomedov.
McGregor knocked out Jose Aldo to become featherweight champion last month.
UFC 197 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
