If you were thinking Rafael dos Anjos was "faking" a broken foot to get out of fighting Conor McGregor this Saturday at UFC 196, you'd be seriously wrong. One of the people in the "faking it" camp, was McGregor himself, who claimed dos Anjos' foot was nothing more than a "bruise on the foot." By the looks of it, McGregor couldn't be more wrong.
Dos Anjos took to Instagram to show the status of his foot, and I'm no doctor, but it doesn't look good.
A week ago, Dos Anjos posted a picture of his foot to shut up the haters and while Dos Anjos claims his foot is healing well, I can't seem to tell the difference. Six week until back in training seems to be a stretch, but what do I know.
Dos Anjos is the current lightweight champ and was slated to defend his title against Conor McGregor on his trek for belt domination. Now, McGregor will face Nate Diaz in UFC 196 in a non title fight. The fight will take place in Las Vegas tomorrow night at 7pm.
