VIDEO: Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos offers to fight Conor McGregor in Ireland or Brazil

It's not often that you actually see champions calling out opponents.

But when a lucrative shot at cash-cow Conor McGregor is on the table, we can't say we blame fighters for suddenly getting vocal.

There were four victors on the UFC on Fox 17 main card and two of them called out 'The Notorious' in their post-fight interview, with Nate Diaz dropping some ill-advised bad language an hour before lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos offered to fight the Irishman.

Dos Anjos had just stopped number one contender Donald Cerrone in 66 seconds when he finished out his chat with Joe Rogan by proposing a bout with the new undisputed featherweight champion who has indicated that his next move is to face off against the 155 lb kingpin.

The Rio de Janeiro native offered to take McGregor on in either Brazil or Ireland which will have more optimistic Irish fans salivating at the very unlikely realisation of a Croke Park title fight.

And McGregor's head coach, John Kavanagh, seemed rather pleased with the prospect.

McGregor, meanwhile, doesn't care who he fights. With all these fighters calling him out, he has just one sweet, simple message for all of them.
