Conor McGregor was typically bullish over his chances at UFC 197 last night, but just how will the Dubliner fare out in Las Vegas in March?

The UFC confirmed that the featherweight champion will have the opportunity to become a dual-weight champion when he takes on Rafael Dos Anjos at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Should McGregor prevail against the formidable Brazilian Dos Anjos, he will be the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold titles in two different divisions.

Do you think McGregor will remain unbeaten following his UFC 197 title fight?
