UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has revealed that he wants lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos and Nate Diaz to beg him for a title fight after they both called him out.
McGregor broke the record for the fastest title win in UFC history when he defeated Jose Aldo via TKO in 13 seconds at UFC 194 earlier this month to be crowned the undisputed featherweight champion.
Dos Anjos meanwhile knocked out Donald Cerrone in 66 seconds at UFC on Fox 17 on Saturday to retain his title, while Diaz defeated Michael Johnson via unanimous decision at the same event.
However, despite both men expressing their eagerness to fight McGregor, the Irishman believes that both Dos Anjos and Diaz should be begging to fight him.
“Line them up on their knees with their hands out. I want them to beg me,” McGregor said on his official Twitter account.
As of now, Dos Anjos is considered to be the frontrunner to face McGregor as UFC president Dana White confirmed that McGregor could fight for the lightweight title if he wanted to. However, McGregor has made it clear that he will not move up to the lightweight division if he has to give up the featherweight title he won at UFC 194.
