It’s no secret UFC 196 is centered, and outtered (I’m perfectly aware that’s not a word), around Conor McGregor despite the fact his featherweight title will merely be a footnote in the March 5 event.
Just take a look at the first UFC 196 promotional video, it starts and ends with McGregor. It has his quotes echoing throughout the ad.
However, let’s not forget lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos (pictured) should get more shine considering his strap will be up for grabs in the show’s featured attraction.
McGregor is the UFC’s newest cash cow, so it’s not surprising the “Notorious” one is in the forefront.
UFC bantamweight champ Holly Holm and Miehsa Tate also make cameos in the promo.
UFC 196 takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here is the card’s current lineup:
Diego Sanchez vs. Jim Miller
Miesha Tate vs. Holly Holm (UFC bantamweight champion)
Conor McGregor vs. Rafael Dos Anjos (UFC lightweight champion)
