Despite Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum withdrawing from the event, it looks like UFC 196 will feature a UFC title fight, after all.

The UFC confirmed Wednesday that the card originally titled UFC 196 – now UFC Fight Night: Hendricks vs. Thompson -- is moving to FS1, and the lightweight title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and featherweight champ Conor McGregor in March will now be called UFC 196: dos Anjos vs. McGregor.

UFC 196 will also feature the women's bantamweight title fight between Holly Holm and Miesha Tate. The card airs March 5, live on Pay-Per-View.
