Spectacular UFC 197 is to take place March 5 in Las Vegas and it will feature two title fights. One of them is definitely to be the biggest match this year. Except Rafael dos Anjos and Conor McGregor, Holly Holm is to defend her belt for the first time against Miesha Tate.
This event was originally to take place in Rio de Janeiro with a different fight card, but it was all cancelled last year. Some ten days ago it was announced that the match was relocated to Las Vegas in MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The event will be headlined by McGregor and Dos Anjos and it will be only second match in the UFC history with two current champs coming out of different divisions. The first similar match happened in 2009 at UFC 194 when Georges St-Pierre, welterweight champ, fought B.J. Penn who was then champion of the lightweight category.
