With just four weeks to go before Conor McGregor challenges Rafael Dos Anjos for the lightweight title at UFC 196, the promotion have released a stirring preview montage.

It can’t be particularly difficult for the UFC to find suitable footage of Conor McGregor, when seeking to dial up the hype ahead of one of his bouts.

The one liners and grandstanding bombast are plentiful and, as such, they’ve pieced together a cracking reel of his sparse but eventful encounters with Dos Anjos to date.

Dating back to September at the Go Big press conference, before McGregor had usurped Jose Aldo as featherweight champion, he was already putting the ‘stuck in the mud’ lightweight division on notice.  Also featured are the highlights of the press event in Las Vegas last month, as the Dubliner and Dos Anjos came face to face for the first time.

UFC 196 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on March 5, and is co-headlined by a women’s bantamweight title fight between champion Holly Holm and Miesha Tate. Should McGregor dethrone the Brazilian, he’ll be the first man in UFC history to concurrently hold two titles.
