Rafael dos Anjos has been forced to withdraw from next week's highly-anticipated UFC 196 main event fight against Conor McGregor.

According to multiple sources, dos Anjos suffered a broken foot late last week, forcing him to pull out of the lightweight title fight against McGregor. The UFC is currently working on finding a replacement to fight McGregor on less than two weeks' notice, however, nothing has been finalized at this time.

The big question now is: Does the UFC make an interim title for Conor at LW, as they did at FW?

I'm okay with this fight. Not sure if Nate can make LW on short notice though. Cowboy could probably do it, if Nate cannot.

Could Alvarez also be a possibility?

Another lost title fight live i can put in the tin.


Connor staying on the card.

Early replacement is either cerrone or diaz.
Those are the two options

I'd be thrilled if they made McGregor/Edgar instead. I doubt that'll happen though unfortunately.

Edgar is out injured himself, so it looks like either Cerrone, Diaz or Alavrez as the options

Oh, true enough. Cerrone is who I think they'll go with then. Dude loves to fight so there will be no issues there. Plus, they have a little history after that press conference last year.

Conor McGregor said RDA was a bum version of Aldo. So no one should be surprised that RDA pulled out of this fight.......... Irish King is 4 real people

When did Frankie get injured? I don't recall hearing that.
All of the alternate proposed matchups sound great. If cerrone gets the nod, Connor better watch out for that round 1 triangle

I would rathet see cerrone or diaz.

I doubt alvarez takes the fight.

If cerrone or diaz takes it to the ground fight is over

I just heard it today myself which makes me think it's nothing too serious but serious enough to keep him from fighting at UFC 196 is all. I don't recall any article coming out saying Edgar would be out for any great length of time.
