According to multiple reports, UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos (25-7 MMA) has suffered a broken foot in training and will no longer be able to defend his title against Conor McGregor at UFC 196 on March 5.

Brazilian news outlet Globo was one of the first to report the story.

No word yet if Conor McGregor will remain on the card.

Those clamoring for Frankie Edgar to step-up as a short-notice replacement will be sad to learn that he apparently is dealing with an injury and is not available, this according to a report from Ariel Helwani.

Stay tuned to for further updates as they become available.
