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. "Physically, mentally I'm at the best moment of my career and I'm just enjoying what I'm doing".

"Here I am, fighting for the (interim) title".

The two were originally slated to face off at UFC 196, but dos Anjos would be pulled due to a foot injury and being replaced by Nate Diaz. From calling the Brazilian fans "animals" to his twitter beef with Kamaru Usman and the 80's throwback of calling everyone nerds, Colby Covington seems to have talked his way into an Interim Title fight with Rafael Dos Anjos. Over the last two years, "Chaos" has collected five consecutive victories, grinding out wins over Max Griffin, Dong Hyun Kim and Demian Maia to climb towards the summit of the welterweight ranks.

"Yeah, actually UFC didn't contact me to talk about that fight at all", dos Anjos said.

While he's fully aware of Covington's various comments, the surging former lightweight champion is far more focused on what his opponent brings to the cage and exploiting some of the advantages he carries with him into this contest.

This is the first time an official source had confirmed about this proposed fight and it was popularly assumed that Conor was to fight the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov next. 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.

"I think I will finish him before the fifth round", he said with confidence. I am looking for a 4th round TKO for Rafael Dos Anjos hopefully stopping the BS propelled hype train that is Colby Covington. Whoever they got for me to fight at this time, come get this work. He wants to fight in July or August with these three guys.

UFC star Tyron Woodley is eager to get back in the cage and clean out the welterweight division as soon as possible. But if the fight is against me, only December.

"I have to win for me - for my family and for myself".
