UFC 225 Fight Preview | Rafael Dos Anjos vs Colby Covington

Conor McGregor reveals he almost returned to UFC in May

Conor McGregor reveals he almost returned to UFC in May

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.

While a couple of those victories were lackluster, Woodley still found a way to retain his championship, and in this sport that's what counts when all is said an done.

Following his win over Cerrone to close out the UFC's 2015 campaign, Dos Anjos faltered, dropping the lightweight title to Eddie Alvarez before coming out on the wrong side of a one-sided decision against Tony Ferguson.

MMAFighting's Ariel Helwani also confirmed the report saying opponent would have been Rafael Dos Anjos and likely fight for an interim welterweight title bout.

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.

The "something" that came up and scuttled McGregor's return presumably was the April bus attack that took place during a UFC 223 media day event in Brooklyn. When it's all said and done, I did everything I could do there. The Irishman's earnings for 2017 - all from the Mayweather fight - were estimated at $85 million, which Forbes characterized as "more than five times his previous biggest check". "I'm not saying he's ducking me, but it looks like it".

"I think people do whatever they choose to promote themselves and he chose that way, talking about somebody else's country to promote his fight and promote himself", he added in regards to Covington's various comments. "I'm a very competitive guy, and once I step inside the Octagon, I'm a cold-blooded fighter; I don't bring any emotions with me". But if the fight is against me, only December.

The top-10-ranked UFC strawweight contender rarely has a bad word to say about anyone, and throughout her career, she's avoided the kind of heated rivalries that are spurred on by words as much as action. "RDA" said that talk isn't getting to him thanks in large part to his experience in the fight game. "I'm just happy to be fighting and performing at my best".

And with that win lead to a shot at the UFC welterweight title match against "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler which say Woodley be the first man to ever kncokout Lawler in the UFC at a time where it seemed Lawler couldn't be finished.

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