Rafael dos Anjos isn't backing down on his criticism though he said his criticism wasn't due to hatred or personal animosity for McGregor but was just trying to be honest about what he witnessed back on August 26th.

Dos Anjos will face Neil Magny (19-5 MMA, 12-4 UFC) in the Octagon on Saturday at UFC 215 at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, which will be aired on PPV after prelims FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

“I don’t have to kiss Conor’s ass just to please all his fans,” dos Anjos told MMAjunkie at today’s UFC 215 media day. “I wasn’t happy because he lost, that’s for sure. I can do that, because I am the next to step in the octagon and that’s a thing called karma. That comes back to you. I just say the truth. I think he’s a fast starter, and he gassed out. He’s had this problem. I think everyone saw before he’s gassing out with (Nate) Diaz as well. I think he doesn’t have a strong mind. He doesn’t push his cardio enough, that’s why he gets tired. A 40-year-old man made him tired.”

Anjos had moved up Weight and presently doesn't feel excited about dropping to light weight division despite the potential of facing Conor McGregor for the light weight title.

“I’m not really excited to come back to lightweight,” dos Anjos said. “I’m not really excited to do it. We’ve got to see. It’s too much for me. It’s been too much. My health means more than money.”

considered to fight Woodley with only one welterweight fight to his credit was flattering, he said, and he believes he will once again be in consideration to get that title shot if he defeats Magny at UFC 215.
“(Woodley) deserves respect,” dos Anjos said. “But one thing, I can be a threat. I can be a threat. I’m an aggressive fighter who walks forward. I will make sure I push the pace for five rounds. One thing will happen: He will break or I will break. I’m sure I will not break. I’m sure about it. I will push the pace hard, and I will make him fight. I’m not going to let him walk around. I’m going to make him work.”
