UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos was initially slated to fight Conor McGregor for the lightweight championship at UFC 196 on March 5th, however a broken foot forced dos Anjos out of the fight.
Ultimately Nate Diaz stepped in as a late replacement for dos Anjos with less than two weeks until fight night. Diaz then proceeded to submit McGregor in the 2nd round of their welterweight scrap.
With UFC 200 rapidly approaching, reports have surfaced which allege that both Diaz and McGregor have verbally agreed to a rematch at welterweight at UFC 200.
That doesn’t sit too well with Rafael dos Anjos, who took to Twitter to react to reports of the bout.
@UFCONFOX Mcgregor vs Diaz 2 make no sense, I would beat theses 2 guys on the same night
