Big news was recently being circulated in the media as UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was in talks to be fighting UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos. The UFC never made an official announcement for the bout that is expected to take place at UFC 197.
Now, it looks like the fight between the two champions may have hit a rocky road. Close ties to both fighters being McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh and dos Anjos’ manager Ali Abdel-Aziz tweeted some interesting info that perhaps an agreement on the fight cannot be made.
Well that was an anti climax 😕 #RedPantiesBackInDrawer 🙈🙉🙊

Does this mean that they will not be fighting at UFC 197 in March? We will wait to see as the fight negotiations develop as well as an official announcement from the UFC.
In the meantime, who would you pick in the champion versus champion match? Let us know your pick in the comments!
