Rafael dos Anjos-Conor McGregor & Holly Holm-Miesha Tate slated for UFC 197
UFC 197 was initially thought to be taking place in Rio de Janeiro, but it now appears to be scheduled to take place in Las Vegas. Whether the MGM Grand Garden Arena or Mandalay Bay Events Center will play host remains to be seen.
Dos Anjos (25-7) is coming off a 66 second destruction of Donald Cerrone at UFC on FOX 17 in the main event on December 19th. McGregor (19-2) knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds, setting a record for fastest knockout in a Featherweight Title fight at UFC 194. His goal was to simultaneously hold two UFC titles, but Rafael dos Anjos will be the Irishman’s stiffest test yet in the Octagon.
