I come this far on this.
One hardly could blame Rafael dos Anjos if he's a little unnerved about where he fits in welterweight champion Tyron Woodley's apparent personal pecking order.
In a report by Ariel Helwani, McGregor would have had the spot now taken by Colby Covington, as he and Rafael dos Anjos would have fought for the interim welterweight title. Long before achieving his dream in becoming the UFC welterweight champion, Woodley had taken a journey full of twists and turns, but when you actually sit down an think about it, it's more of him being at the right place at the right time and always staying ready.
Covington has fired off shots at just about everybody from heavyweight to strawweight and even managed to spoil two of the biggest movies of the past year on Twitter.
Yesterday (Wed. June 6, 2018) news broke that Conor McGregor was originally scheduled to make his Octagon return at the UFC 224 pay-per-view (PPV) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil last month.
A UFC spokesman said the fight promotion had no comment on McGregor's post.
"If the Irish boy wants to try his third belt, I'll be there", said RDA.
Somewhat surprisingly, Covington started swinging for the fences early doors, landing solid left and right hands before putting dos Anjos on his back.
In a stacked UFC 225 card this weekend from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois the UFC gives us title fights in 2 weight classes. When it's all said and done, I did everything I could do there. "Chaos" has discussed everything from hoping a win on Saturday night nets him a meeting with President Donald Trump to calling out National Basketball Association superstars like Kevin Durant and Steph Curry, who have turned down offers to travel to the White House. Dos Anjos barely catches Covington with a knee strike before getting taken down, Dos Anjos gets up and separates from Covington. Whoever they got for me to fight at this time, come get this work. But if the fight is against me, only December. "And I'm sure I'm going to win, and I'll fight (Woodley) later on".
