According to the latest information, UFC 197 is to be held on March 5 in Las Vegas and will feature two title matches. Conor McGregor will fight in the lightweight division and attack the title held by Rafael dos Anjos, while Holly Holm is to defend her belt for the first time against Miesha Tate.
The New Year just kicked off and there are already some great events on the schedule. McGregor won the featherweight title barely a month ago, but now his second wish will come true and he is to get another title shot! According to Dana White, the Irish fighter will fight for the new belt with dos Anjos but at the same time he would be allowed to keep the old one.
Holly Holm and Miesha Tate will fight in the co-main event. In her first title defense, the champ will fight the former contender and current No2.
Although it is not officially confirmed yet, the entire world’s leading fighting sports media started to write about the upcoming event, while the UFC leaders will surely confirm it very soon. The UFC 197 was to take place in Brazil, but the event got relocated last month.
