Conor McGregor reveals he nearly returned to UFC in May

If Dos Anjos is able to damage the front leg of Covington he will have a real advantage going into the later rounds, which is where I see Dos Anjos pulling away and finishing the show. McGregor went on to say that the fight did not happen because "something came up".

On when he's coming back: "I'm projected to be back August 4".

Speaking to MMAFighting's Ariel Helwani, he said: 'If the Irish boy wants to try for his third belt, I will be there. I want to fight in L.A.

And the names being bandied about?

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. He now has UFC gold around his waist. Colby Covington, aka the new Chael Sonnen better be ready to back up his trash talk when he steps in to the cage with Rafael Dos Anjos. "Not even once. I saw rumors, but nothing directly about the fight".

Big Brunch: Hickory-smoked bacon, fried egg, potato, American cheese and a "delicious new signature burger sauce". The chain began teasing a change last week and took to Twitter Monday morning to make the official announcement.

"I kind of want to legitimately clean the division", the 36-year-old told MMA Junkie. When he was told that he would fight me, he said, 'Dos Anjos, just in December - only December'. I can't be one year without fighting - I need to keep my rhythm. So he thought he had to do a cycle of roids and I just lost a lot of respect for him.

UFC 224 took place in Brazil, and any legal issues McGregor is going through could easily preclude him from traveling overseas to fight. Colby Covington came out aggressive and set the pace and score multiple takedowns. I became the first Brazilian lightweight champion and now, I'm on my way to become the welterweight champ as well.

Woodley hasn't fought in almost a year.

Though he's been sidelined with injury as of late, his body of work inside the octagon as champion can not be denied, racking up victories over Demian Maia, and Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson twice. After knocking out Lawler to win the title in July 2016, he fought to a majority draw in a title fight with Stephen Thompson, then won a majority decision against him in a rematch before beating Maia. Dos Anjos barely catches Covington with a knee strike before getting taken down, Dos Anjos gets up and separates from Covington. "I'm not saying he's ducking me, but it looks like it". I get it - everybody wants to make some money, everybody wants to get big fights. "You have to face the challenges of your division". "I'm sure I will win".
