Are you geared up for Conor McGregor press conference fun? Well today is a good day for you! He’ll almost certainly be the center of attention for the first UFC 197 press conference, which takes place at the MGM Grand in studios A & B. The reigning featherweight champion will face lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos in the March 5th main event, as Conor looks to become the first simultaneous two-division champion in UFC history.
Also on tap for the press conference are co-headliners Holly Holm and Miesha Tate. Holm was expected to immediately rematch Ronda Rousey following her stunning KO win, but she will instead make her first women’s bantamweight title defense against Tate, Rousey’s other big rival.
Live streaming video can be viewed at the top of the page at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT, with UFC president Dana White hosting the proceedings. We will have follow-up posts with the top quotes from the conference later today and tomorrow.
