McGregor, Holm to headline double main event for UFC 197

We've had some great champions, some great guys that have come out of the division and it's not just based on talk, it's based on performance.

The March 5th event will also showcase the first woman to beat Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm, attempting to defend her title against veteran fighter Miesha Tate. Now that Holm holds the belt, Tate is the number one contender, and making this match now is fair to Tate. She has been victorious in four-straight bouts, with wins over Jessica Eye and Sara McMann in her last two outings.

Anthony Pettis and Eddie Alvarez have offered their opinion on Conor McGregor's step up in weight class from the featherweight division to the lightweight division. Tate might end up on the canvas if she underestimates The Preacher's Daughter.

Holm, who did a stunning job against Ronda Rousey in "UFC 193" has spiraled into success after she hit the former undefeated champion with her infamous head kick that sent the former nearly unconscious to the canvas. "Regardless of whether people think he deserves this or he deserves that, the truth is when one fighter gets paid more, it's good for all of us". She found out via twitter that she would not be fighting for the title after her and Eye were told the victor of her last fight would have the chance to face the champ.

The 27-year-old blitzed Brazilian Jose Aldo in 13-seconds and made UFC history in the process. Am I going to get it?

Rafael dos Anjos is coming off of a first-round TKO over Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 17 in what was his first title defense. Although betting odds don't mean anything when is comes down to what will actually happen in the octagon, McGregor will be pushed to the test in this fight. "Rafael is really happy to "welcome" him in a brutal way to the lightweight division". "The line has since settled at minus-130 for Dos Anjos".

Now it seems that Conor McGregor will also have a phenomenal 2016 if certain MMA news about UFC 197, spreading like wildfire, becomes official.

Speaking to, Cordeiro confirmed that the contracts had been signed by the lightweight champion Dos Anjos and that he was looking forward to facing McGregor at 155lbs.

If this isn't going to be the biggest UFC event in history, it's certainly going to be up there.

Fight fans should be thrilled with the reported card for UFC 197.
