Pic: Rafael dos Anjos' foot still badly swollen, but UFC champ expects to resume training in six weeks

I doubt Rafael dos Anjos has a sore vagina because his broken foot wouldn't allow him to defend his UFC lightweight championship against reigning featherweight kingpin Conor McGregor at the upcoming UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) event.

Check out the following photo from the Brazilian's recent trip to the doctor courtesy of his Instagram account:

As you can see, his foot looks a hell of a lot better than it did two weeks ago.

"RDA" looks to be on the shelf for just another six weeks before he can resume training for an unnamed opponent. "Notorious" may or may not elect to reschedule a tussle with the 155-pound juggernaut for this summer's UFC 200 extravaganza.

After all, McGregor wants to move onto bigger and better things. What the Irishman wants, he usually gets.

I guess that's why they call him "Mystic Mac."

In the meantime, the Dubliner tangles with former lightweight title challenger and hand-picked late replacement Nate Diaz in an emotionally-driven main event tomorrow night (Sat., March 5, 2016).
