Dos Anjos injured out of Title fight with McGregor at #UFC196

According to multiple sources (including @fabiana_mello and Combate in Brazil) Rafael Dos Anjos is out of the main event of #UFC196 against Conor McGregor with a foot injury.

The UFC is currently looking for a replacement for Dos Anjos with only two weeks until the event.

As at the time of writing no official confirmation has been made by the promotion but a tweet from McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh with a sad face along with a number of online reports all but suggests the huge fight is off.

Brazilian Fabiana Mello was the journalist who first reported the injury to McGregor’s previous opponent Jose Aldo which saw the former Featherweight Champion withdraw from UFC 189.
