Mateusz Gamrot not taking shot against ex-champion Rafael dos Anjos lightly at UFC 299

MIAMI – Mateusz Gamrot met the media Wednesday ahead of his fight at UFC 299.

Gamrot (23-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) takes on former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos (32-15 MMA, 21-13 UFC) on the prelims at Kaseya Center in Miami. At the event’s media day, Gamrot took questions from press members before his fight.

“I accept that RDA will be attacking me,” Gamrot said. “There’s going to be a lot of action, a lot of scrambles on the ground. I think this fight can be similar (to my fight with Arman) Tsarukyan. I’m happy that I can fight with a former champ, tough opponent. (It’s a) big test, but I am ready.””

Gamrot is at much as a 5-1 favorite against dos Anjos at some online sportsbooks, which makes him easily the heaviest favorite on Saturday’s card.
