"He'd come home and he'd yell at me, "Oh what the f*** are you doing Colby, do the dishes" and he would just like freak out".

And with the interim welterweight title in his sights and a potential title unification bout on the horizon later this year, claiming UFC gold for a second time and delivering another cold-blooded performance inside the cage is exactly what Dos Anjos intends to do this weekend.

One hardly could blame Rafael dos Anjos if he's a little unnerved about where he fits in welterweight champion Tyron Woodley's apparent personal pecking order.

The 1st thing on his list, getting prepared to face the victor if this Saturday night's UFC 225 co-main event for the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship between Colby Covington-Rafael Dos Anjos.

"That's when I want to fight".

Recently the welterweight champ revealed that he's ready to go, after undergoing shoulder surgery earlier this year, and that he wants to fight at the aforementioned Los Angeles card.

The second meeting that was supposed to take place with the rivals was further cancelled, with McGregor writing, "Something came up", which was a reference to his aggressive appearance he showed at the media event for UFC 223 back in April 5th at Brooklyn. With a quick submission win over Neil Magny by arm triangle at UFC 215 and a dominant 5 round decision win over former champion Robbie Lawler at UFC Fight Night Winnipeg, Rafael Dos Anjos propelled himself to the top of the welterweight division and next in line for a shot at Tyron Woodley. "I want to fight". "That's why I took this fight". When he was told that he would fight me, he said, 'Dos Anjos, just in December - only December'.

In total, Covington outlanded dos Anjos 142-130 and scored seven takedowns to RDA's three.

"I don't think this fight is going five rounds".

But dos Anjos said he'll put those frustrations to the side this week against an opponent who can be frustrating for entirely different reasons - his trash talk.

"Here I am, fighting for the (interim) title".
