Conor McGregor would be dead if he fought me claims Rafael dos Anjos

Conor McGregor had an interesting weekend, getting called out by pretty much the entire WWE roster after making some comments in a recent interview.

But it isn't only wrestlers who are calling out The Notorious One. No, some of his peers in actual fighting are putting no "respeck" on his name either.

Rafael dos Anjos - who McGregor was supposed to take on at UFC 196 - has now piped up, probably to get himself some attention after losing his UFC lightweight title.

Responding to a claim McGregor made earlier in the week about potentially being a two-time UFC champion, the Brazilian retorted that he would have killed the Irishman in their planned match if it had gone through.

Let's relive McGregor's recent quotes.

"Realistically I should be a two-weight UFC world champion," he started off as saying, via the Daily Mail.

"If I fought Rafael dos Anjos, if he didn't p**** out of that last one and showed up, the shots I cracked Nate within the first eight minutes would've KO'd Rafael dos Anjos stiff. That's no question."

"I would be sitting here right now as a two-weight world champion."

McGregor faces Nate Diaz later this month in a rematch and will almost certainly be fighting Jose Aldo afterwards in the first defense of his featherweight title. 

If he beats Aldo then who knows, maybe he will take on Eddie Alvarez to become a two-time champ.
