UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos slays Conor McGregor's belt-tying skills via Instagram

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It's safe to say that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight kingpin Conor McGregor is the most wanted man in mixed martial arts (MMA). And even though the majority of fighters are unable to get their hands on "Notorious," that hasn't stopped them from taking their shots.

Through the thick hater fog that has clouded the Irishman's green shores, current UFC Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos has made his presence felt. After all, the intimidating Brazilian was scheduled to defend his 155-pound strap opposite McGregor at UFC 196, but an unexpected foot injury saw his chance for a million dollar payday go to fellow Lightweight Nate Diaz.

He even took to Twitter to bash McGregor immediately after his loss to Diaz back in March:

Dos Anjos has now taken to Instagram to attack the way McGregor ties his brown belt:

As someone who has never worn a gi before, I can only assume there is a proper technique used to tie a belt. While dos Anjos probably has a genuine issue with someone who doesn't tie their gi correctly, it's more likely that he's looking for anything to use against the Featherweight champ.

With McGregor due to face Diaz in a rematch sometime in 2016, as well as the 145-pound division in desperate need of its titleholder, RDA may have to wait well into 2017 before he can even the score with "Mystic Mac."

Of course, the Brazilian must first dispose of Eddie Alvarez at UFC Fight Night 90 on July 7 in Las Vegas to retain his Lightweight title.
