Rafael Dos Anjos Withdrew From His UFC 196 Fight Against Conor McGregor

Rafael Dos Anjos allegedly broke his foot last week while training and has pulled out of his UFC 196 fight against Conor McGregor.  The news comes 12 days from the scheduled main event between Dos Anjos and McGregor.

I'm sure Dana White isn't thrilled with the news, especially this close to the scheduled date.  According to MMA Fighting, the UFC is looking for a replacement fighter for Dos Anjos.

I wonder, since this was a title fight, will the UFC put an interim belt up for grabs.  It's all still up in the air at this point and McGregor's response to the news should be interesting.
