Dos Anjos/McGregor and Holm/Tate set for UFC 197

Both the Lightweight and womens Bantamweight Titles will be on the line at #UFC197 as Dos Anjos takes on McGregor and Holm takes on Tate.

Conor McGregor will attempt to make history by becoming the first two weight World Champion in UFC history when he takes on Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos.

Holly Holm will make her first title defence against Miesha Tate who is on an impressive four fight win streak.

The card takes place on 5th March in Las Vegas but at present the venue has not been confirmed.

Tonys Thoughts:

Wow two absolute huge fights, the UFC are really looking to break some numbers in 2016.

In my eyes it was always inevitable that McGregor would get a shot to make history and here is his opportunity.

Tate is a very logical opponent for Holm’s first defence given what she brings to the fight and I personally think she offers a lot more than Rousey does against Holm.

If this is in store for #UFC197 I cannot wait to see what #UFC200 brings!
