Clearly that was wishful thinking on their part.
The Interim title fight between Conor Mcgregor and Rafael Dos Anjos never came to fruition, mainly because of the UFC 223 melee and the subsequent arrest of Conor. If Covington can get a hold of dos Anjos' hips and work consistent takedowns, he's capable of simply wrestling his way past a former lightweight champion. Covington continued to press the action but dos Anjos looked to have some answers as he worked Covington's body. Colby went for a single, but couldn't get anything. Nine months later, he stepped into the Octagon and halted Donald Cerrone's two-year, eight-fight run of success in a heartbeat to solidify his place as the best lightweight in the world. He started partying a lot, doing Ecstasy, doing all these drugs and the rest of history.
Rafael Dos Anjos is a Black Belt in Jiu Jitsu much like Demian Maia but has very good striking and underrated power in his hands, something that Maia has always lacked.

To Waterson, the fact that the 13-1 Covington just keeps winning is a crucial component to his mass appeal-or lack thereof.
Finally, the match seemed to turn in dos Anjos' favor. Dos Anjos spun out and they broke with Covington throwing punches before they clinched again. Shortly after, RDA was able to pop back up. The fighters separate and Covington nails Dos Anjos with a punching combination, Covington and Dos Anjos exchange some kicks. RDA lay in half guard as the round drew to a close. Colby took the Brazilian's back right away. I don't want to sit back and say, 'Oh, I want to sit and wait to see what happens with this fight.' I'm the champion. Covington is a tenacious former collegiate All-American wrestler, averaging six takedowns per fight in the UFC - but when he fought Maia, he did not attempt a single one. I don't want to just go up there and get two belts to say I got it.
Covington has fired off shots at just about everybody from heavyweight to strawweight and even managed to spoil two of the biggest movies of the past year on Twitter. It would go to the championship rounds, with RDA arguably down three rounds.
The 1st thing on his list, getting prepared to face the victor if this Saturday night's UFC 225 co-main event for the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship between Colby Covington-Rafael Dos Anjos.
