By FCF Staff
Recently Dana White revealed that Holly Holm will be booked for a fight soon, and that he was interested in having Conor McGregor face Rafael dos Anjos, and now new details regarding this have emerged.
According to a report from Bleacher Report’s Jeremy Botter, McGregor will challenge dos Anjos for the lightweight belt on March 5th at UFC 197. Holm, meanwhile, is expected to face Miesha Tate at the event as well. MMA Junkie is reporting that sources have confirmed these fights are being targeted for the event, which will take place in Las Vegas.
McGregor is coming off a vicious and quick knockout win over Jose Aldo to secure the featherweight belt. RDA, on the other hand, defended the lightweight belt in December by quickly stopped Donald Cerrone.
Holm shocked the MMA world in November by knocking out now former bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey. Tate hasn’t fought since July when she decisioned Jessica Eye.
