UFC 196 is just a few weeks away, and it will feature a superfight on top. UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will go up to lightweight to fight the 155-pound champion, Rafael dos Anjos. Mystic Mac will be looking to become just the third man to win UFC gold in two divisions.

As is the case when the UFC has a big fight to promote, they release the fight videos for some of the competitor's biggest moments. In RDA's case, one of those fights was at UFC 185, where he claimed the belt from Anthony Pettis.

Dos Anjos went into the bout as a large underdog, with Pettis being viewed as a dominant champion and the king of the division. But things did not go Showtime's way that night - Dos Anjos caught him with an early punch to the eye, and then mauled the compromised champion for five full rounds to pick up his first UFC title in a major upset.

Check out the video above.
