Brazilian UFC lightweight Rafael dos Anjos responded to a question about a potential fight with Russian lightweight champion Islam Makhachev.

We had a chance to fight at welterweight, he volunteered first, I agreed and he refused, and as a result the fight was taken by Renato Moicano. We could have closed the issue and fought at welterweight or lightweight, but I won't be too upset if that fight never happens.
