Dos Anjos will defend his lightweight title against McGregor in the main event of UFC 197 on March 5 in Las Vegas, it was announced Tuesday by the UFC. McGregor won the featherweight title by knocking out longtime champion Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds last month at UFC 194.
If McGregor beats dos Anjos, he would be the first fighter to ever hold two UFC titles in separate weight classes at the same time.
