Dos Anjos assessed Makhachev's chances in the welterweight division

Rafael Dos Anjos, former UFC lightweight champion, has spoken out about the prospects of Islam Makhachev, the current lightweight champion, in the welterweight division.

"I don't think Islam can beat Leon Edwards. He's too small for welterweight and Leon is much bigger than him. And we saw how much trouble the little guy Dustin Porier gave Islam," the Brazilian wrote in social networks.

Recall, earlier Makhachev repeatedly stated that he wants to win a second UFC championship belt.
