One of the first guys called to fight Conor McGregor at UFC 196 at Rafael Dos Anjos withdrew was Jose Aldo. Aldo lost his UFC featherweight title to McGregor at UFC 194 and Dana White offered the rematch at lightweight, but Aldo and his team turned down the offer with the fight only being ten days away:

Early this morning it was revealed that Rafael Dos Anjos suffered a broken foot in training and was forced to withdraw from his UFC 196 bout with Conor McGregor.

Fans began to speculate as to who McGregor would face and more than one fighter volunteered. No official decision has been made.

In perhaps in response to his pundits, Dos Anjos posted a picture of his fractured foot to prove to his doubters how serious the injury was:

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
