“Wait for me”-Rafael dos Anjos want to hunt Justin Gaethje down for his next fight

Rafael dos Anjos aims to take down Justin Gaethje next.

Rafael dos Anjos looks forward to making a return in MMA by locking his horns with Justin Gaethje for his next fight. The Brazilian American is zealous to get back to the octagon as he almost dared the latter to a fight over Twitter earlier.

RDA has been out of the ring since November and his bout with Islam Makhachev also looks slim on hope. In that context, when he noticed Justin lamenting over losing the fight with Chandler, Rafael saw fit to propose one to him. He took to Twitter and challenged the 32-year-old to a fight.

Anjos made an impactful statement over Twitter poking ‘The Highlight’ by replying to his tweet. As Justin was expressing his disappointment, Anjos taunted him by saying, “Wait for me. Will be a pleasure.” RDA appears set to take on new bouts as his tone was very confident in the Tweet.

Following his win against Paul Felder back in November 2020, RDA will have a certain confidence within him. The impressive scorecard with a score of 30-13-0 shall be an edifice of his expertise in the Lightweight division.

Since RDA’s retweet to Gaethje’s post, a sense of frenzy took over the fans. The comments section was lit up with excitement over this probable bout, and if it were to happen, it shall be one of the greatest head-to-head ever.

Rafael dos Anjos and Islam Makhachev – the Intense Rivalry

RDA and Islam were supposed to face each other back in October. Unfortunately, the Brazilian had to leave the octagon after he came down with COVID, and to aggravate affairs, Islam had to tend to heart surgery. Due to these unforeseen events, the hyped-up match between the two had to be canceled.

Although the match was forfeit, the rivalry between the two was yet alive. Dos Anjos had always mentioned that he is keen to fight Khabib, Islam’s sparring partner, and if the latter can guarantee that, he shall take on him.

Earlier when Islam had poked RDA regarding the hype surrounding him, the Brazilian’s reply as very simple. He simply said,” If your brother@TeamKhabib fight me after I beat you let’s do it.” RDA has usually been very confident regarding his bouts and even while replying to Islam his tone was the same. 

Considering this, RDA shall have two fights to look forward to. One is his recent challenge to The Highlight, Justin Gaethje, and another one shall be Islam Makhachev. Although he may not get his wish to fight Khabib, he shall be interested in the Russian with that similar zeal.
