Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC 196 (VIDEO)

UFC president Dana White is a very outspoken man, particularly regarding his fighters. Naturally, that results in some pretty blunt assessments. Case in point, a recent interview in which Dana declares that he “doesn’t see how” Conor McGregor can win his fight against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196.

The fight, which will see Lightweight champion dos Anjos put his title on the line against current Feathwerweight champion McGregor, is one of the more anticipated main events in recent UFC history, due in large part to the intrigue of McGregor making the leap from the 145-pound division to 155 pounds. It’s that dramatic change in weight that has Dana feeling McGregor won’t be able to take dos Anjos. “This guy’s moving up to 155 to take on an animal, who destroyed Cowboy Cerrone, destroyed Anthony Pettis. And this isn’t like boxing, where you move up two or three pounds. You move up fifteen pounds.”

What do you think of what Dana White has to say? Is he on the money about McGregor? Or can the Irishman defeat dos Anjos? Sound off in the comments, and check out Dana White’s interview, below:

UFC 196 takes place on March 5 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The co-main event features Holly Holm defending her bantamweight title against Miesha Tate, in what will be Holm’s first defense since knocking out Ronday Rousey back at UFC 193 to win the title. In short, it’s looking like a solid fight card overall.
