Seems like history is repeating itself after UFC 196 as Conor McGregor thinks that Rafael dos Anjos would cancel their super fight twice like what Jose Aldo did in the past.

Right now, McGregor is focused on his upcoming fight with Nate Diaz in UFC 196 but when the possibility of  talking to dos Anjos to fight again… he seemed to have lost interest for now.

“It’s hard to commit to dos Anjos again,” said McGregor as reported by MMAFighting.com 


“The same with Jose [Aldo]. He pulled, and it took him two [times] to build up the courage. Hopefully, maybe, it would take dos Anjos two [times] to build up the courage.”

McGregor, who is currently have a professional fighting record of 19-2, can’t blame dos Anjos that much and considers his opponent’s injury to be legit and a valid excuse.

“When you pull out with an injury like that, a bruise on the foot, there’s not much I can do to help you to bring you back into the mix.”

Right now, McGregor is to climb up 25 pounds and face a welterweight, Nate Diaz for UFC 196. A win could definitely erase all doubts that he should stay in one weight division.
