Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anos claimed he is done chasing the title. Instead, he’s looking for a challenge in other veterans of the game.

In a recent post, RDA dropped a few highly interesting names he could potentially fight next.

“I had my last title run…and now it is time to fight people that motivates me to wake up and train. I have almost eight hours of octagon time…get me a veteran for a change! I would love to fight guys like Jim Miller, Jorge Masvidal or get my rematch with Tony Fergunson or Guida,” dos Anjos wrote in a recent Tweet.
