UFC welterweight contender Santiago Ponzinibbio has called for a short-notice fight with Rafael dos Anjos.
Following Anthony Pettis’ win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 249 this past weekend, Dos Anjos — currently on a two-fight losing streak — suggested a rematch with the former lightweight champion.
“How about RDA vs Pettis II?”
That led to a response from Ponzinibbio.
Dos Anjos didn’t seem to take the challenge too seriously as he called the Argentinian a comedian in response.
Ponzinibbio, RDA Beef Goes Back
Dos Anjos and Ponzinibbio have been going back-and-forth for a while now with both fighters notably accusing the other of running away from fights last year. Now would certainly be as good a time as any to settle any beef the pair have.
Dos Anjos is coming off a unanimous decision defeat to Michael Chiesa which was preceded by him getting outpointed by Leon Edwards last year.
Ponzinibbio, on the other hand, is on a seven-fight winning streak. However, “Gente Boa” hasn’t competed since his knockout win over Neil Magny in November 2018.
