Rafael dos Anjos responds to Conor McGregor wanting him to beg for his red panty night

There is no question over who is the big money fight in the UFC at the moment.

If you're a featherweight or a bantamweight and you want a substantial pay day, your best shot is securing a "red panty night" bout against Conor McGregor.

After winning the featherweight strap with his stunning 13-second knockout of pound-for-pound great Jose Aldo, The Notorious addressed all his potential opponents on Twitter, saying he wanted them to beg for the opportunity to fight him.

After UFC 194, McGregor also made it known that he wanted to get an immediate shot at the lightweight title to try to become the first fighter to hold two belts in the promotion simultaneously.

Rafael dos Anjos, who successfully defended his 155 lb throne by finishing Donald Cerrone in 66 seconds at UFC on Fox 17, has since responded to McGregor wanting him to beg for the match-up on Instagram.
