UFC president Dana White does not think Conor McGregor can beat Rafael Dos Anjos in their lightweight title fight next month.

McGregor, who holds the featherweight title, is moving up to lightweight to take on the Brazilian fighter.

But speaking on FOX’s The Buzzer, White poured doubt on the ability of McGregor to succeed at the higher weight level.

"He's the 145lb champion, he can stay right in his own lane. He's moving up to 155 to take on an animal, who destroyed Cowboy Cerrone and Anthony Pettis.

"This isn’t like boxing where you’re moving up two or three pounds – you move up 15 pounds."
