Conor McGreogr is a global phenomenon, whose stock will continue to soar if he wins his next fight.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s featherweight champion is moving up to lightweight to take on the belt holder in that weight division – Rafael dos Anjos.

MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will host the superfight on 5th March, as the Irishman looks to become a two-weight champion.

His previous victory, a lightning quick knockout of the previous dominant force in the featherweight division, Jose Aldo, catapulted McGregor even further into the sporting limelight.
