UFC 196 video: Watch extended 'dos Anjos vs McGregor' trailer for championship showdown

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has rolled out an extended video preview for UFC 196, which is set to pop off on March 5, 2016, from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pay-per-view (PPV) main event features a much-anticipated Lightweight title fight between division champ, Rafael dos Anjos, defending his belt against Featherweight champion, Conor McGregor.

It's a "super fight" the mixed martial arts (MMA) world has been waiting for after both champions absolutely steamrolled their previous foes, as "RDA" took out Donald Cerrone in a little more than one minute at UFC on FOX 17 (see it) while "Notorious" knocked out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds at UFC 194.

Now, McGregor will look to make history by becoming the first-ever fighter to hold two belts in different weight classes simultaneously.

Also on the PPV main card, UFC women's Bantamweight champion Holly Holm will defend her title against Miesha Tate in a battle between two of the most talented ladies in the sport.

Expect much more from the promotion as it relates to UFC 196. Until then, get up to speed with the card by clicking here and dive in to the video embedded above to get a closer look at the blockbuster event.
