CONOR MCGREGOR WILL look to make UFC history in Las Vegas on 5 March by becoming the first fighter to simultaneously hold belts in two weight divisions.

The Dubliner, who became featherweight champion with a devastating 13-second KO of Jose Aldo back in December, faces another Brazilian in Rafael dos Anjos for the lightweight title at UFC 197.

This evening, the pair partook in a press conference from the MGM Grand along with UFC president Dana White, women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm and challenger Miesha Tate.
