Rafael dos Anjos opens a slight favourite over Conor McGregor for UFC 197 bout


The oddsmakers have lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos a slight -130 favourite over featherweight champion Conor McGregor -100 for their headlining bout at UFC 197.

It was announced yesterday by Jeremy Botter of Bleacher Report that Conor McGregor is moving up a weight-class to take on current UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 197. 

UFC 197 will be held on March 5, 2016 at a venue TBA in Las Vegas.
