Rafael dos Anjos vs Conor McGregor full fight videos preview UFC 196 main event

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has stacked the deck when it comes to their blockbuster UFC 196 pay-per-view (PPV) lineup, which is headlined by a Lightweight superfight between 155-pound champion Rafael dos Anjos and Featherweight titleholder Conor McGregor.

The pair of potent finishers will be let loose inside the Octagon in MGM Grand on March 5, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. "RDA" and "Notorious" have already begun the war of words before they tangle with each other in "Sin City."

In order to prepare fight fans for what is sure to be an exhilarating exchange, UFC has released full fight videos highlighting the crowning achievements of both dos Anjos and McGregor.

First, we start off with the lightweight king dos Anjos, who captured the title from ex-champion Anthony Pettis in March 2015.

How do you beat a prolific counter striker? Put him on his back -- many, many times. The Brazilian put a hurting on "Showtime" so bad that he left the Milwaukee-based striker with a broken orbital bone.

Lastly, an opponent change couldn't derail the hype train that McGregor rode into UFC 189. The Dubliner fought through adversity and walloped three-time title challenger Chad Mendes with a vicious left haymaker, which put "Money" out to pasture.
