Dos Anjos Claims McGregor Fight Was Never Offered

Earlier this week Conor McGregor claimed that he had a fight set for last month’s UFC 224, now the man who he was alleged to face said he never got the challenge

“Not at all,” Rafael dos Anjos recently said at a UFC 225 media scrum this week about a potential fight with McGregor.

“They did not contact me to talk about that fight. I think, probably, they was planning to do a surprise on that press conference, you know? Even for me, it would be a surprise for me. But they never contacted me to talk about that fight.”

The Brazilian said he wouldn’t have hesitated to square off with McGregor at 170 pounds.

“Yea, 170 pounds? Of course. Not ‘55.”

Dos Anjos is making final preparations for his interim welterweight bout with Colby Covington, who he will take on in the co-main event of UFC 225 tomorrow night. The PPV takes place at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois..
