It hasn’t been since former reigning champ BJ Penn has there been such a buzz about the lighter divisions. Penn held the reign for a record 812 days before he lost the title.
Rafael dos Anjos has 300 plus days and counting until he puts those numbers to the test against featherweight champ Conor McGregor come UFC 197 in March in a champion vs champion tilt. McGregor has made plans after he’s defeated dos Anjos moving forward with both titles.
McGregor plans to be a highly active champion defending both titles twice a year. The last man to attempt to claim two titles is none other than Penn back in UFC 194 against GSP.
Will The Notorious one continue to ride the UFC wave? Or will the sharks in the lightweight division draw blood on the featherweight champs hopes for pure domination?
