Rafael dos Anjos has had to pull out of UFC 196 with a broken metatarsal (full injury details here) and it has left Conor McGregor’s near future up in the air.

The Dubliner was looking to make history and win the lightweight belt from the Brazilian to add to his featherweight title but he has since agreed to take a fight with Nate Diaz.

Some people blame him for getting injured and all hell broke loose.


Others were set on getting to the bottom of some fishy details.


Some men had more important things on their mind.


But there was still some respect being handed over.
