Rafael dos Anjos vs Conor McGregor staredown pic, video from UFC 197 press conference

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held a special pre-fight press conference earlier today (Weds., Jan. 20, 2016) to promote the upcoming UFC 197: "Dos Anjos vs. McGregor" pay-per-view (PPV) event, taking place on March 5 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As expected, current featherweight champion Conor McGregor, as well as reigning UFC lightweight kingpin Rafael dos Anjos, were on the scene in "Sin City" trading barbs just a few weeks before they're scheduled to trade fists. At the conclusion of today's proceedings, the flashbulbs were popping for their highly-anticipated staredown.

In the UFC 197 co-main event, women's bantamweight champion Holly Holm takes on 135-pound division title contender Miesha Tate, who like "The Preacher's Daughter," played nicey-nice while breaking down their five-round championship showdown.

Watch them face off below.
