McGregor's manager, Audie Attar, said his client has all kinds of options for what comes next in the UFC - including the potential for a trilogy fight with Nate Diaz, a title unification bout with the upcoming interim belt victor between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee, Khabib Nurmagomedo, or even featherweight champ Max Holloway.

It seems the line of people who wants to fight Conor McGregor after the UFC lightweight's champion blockbuster boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather on PPV last night is growing. McGregor lost by TKO in the 10th round, but put up a better showing than many expected. Rafeal dos Anjos posted a challenge to the reigning UFC lightweight champion on Facebook, which you can see below. Since that time, Dos Anjos has moved up to welterweight. As a result, McGregor fought Nate Diaz instead, who handed McGregor his first loss inside the Octagon. "That was a great fight the other night".

McGregor famously knocked out then-featherweight champ Jose Aldo in 13 seconds back at UFC 194.

Dos Anjos was forced to pull out of the McGregor fight after breaking his foot in training camp.

Despite multiple million dollar bets coming in on Mayweather, sportsbooks across the city stood to lose close to $50 million or more in potential winnings if McGregor was able to pull off the unlikely upset.

How do you feel about Aldo and Dos Anjos' tweets?

What do you think of dos Anjos as an option for McGregor? Is it just jealousy or are they honestly angling for (another) fight with the Notorious One? Sound off in the poll below.
