Following his UFC 196 submission loss to Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor revealed his intention to return to featherweight to defend his championship belt.
Ultimately, the UFC booked a McGregor vs. Diaz welterweight rematch for UFC 200, and opted to have Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar fight for the interim featherweight championship on the same card.
Leading up to UFC 200, Frankie Edgar stated that he believes McGregor will never return to featherweight to defend his belt. Now, Rafael dos Anjos has revealed a similar prediction for McGregor.
He spoke on Inside MMA:
