Video: Dana White does not rate Conor McGregor’s chances at UFC 196

The UFC President can’t see a situation where the Notorious can beat “animal” Rafael dos Anjos.

“I don’t see how he can win this fight,” White told At The Buzzer.

“He’s the 145-pound champion, he can stay right in his own lane.

“This guy’s moving up to 155 to take on an animal.”

White thinks that McGregor, whose confidence was sky-high in the UFC 196 promo video, will falter when he faces the Brazilian on March 5 in Las Vegas.

“(Dos Anjos) destroyed (Donald) Cowboy Cerrone, he destroyed Anthony Pettis.

“This isn’t like boxing where you move up two or three pounds, you move up 15 pounds.”

The Dubliner, who in reality is making just a 10-pound jump in his move to the lightweight division, is unlikely to pay too much heed to White's comments.
