Rafael dos Anjos had a rough second half of 2016. He lost his UFC lightweight title to Eddie Alvarez in July at UFC Fight Night and then to top contender, Tony Ferguson at UFC Fight Night 98 in November.
Blaming on having to cut too much weight, dos Anjos plans on his next fight being at welterweight. A fighter who competes in the UFC welterweight division has another theory on the Brazilian’s decision to move up to 170 pounds and challenges him to a fight.
@RdosAnjosMMA I will derail your career worse than @usantidoping did! @ufc @danawhite @seanshelby

Covington is 6-1 in the UFC and has won three consecutive fights, having last fought in December at UFC on Fox 22, defeating Bryan Barberena by unanimous decision.
What do you make of Covington’s comments toward the former champion? Did he cross the line without having any proof of a fighter who hasn’t failed any type of drug test?
