UFC 205 Conor McGregor Eddie Alvarez

Conor McGregor Fights Eddie Alvarez At UFC 205

Published On September 27, 2016 | MMA News

The UFC has confirmed Eddie Alvarez will defend his belt against Conor McGregor at UFC 205 in New York City on November 12th. This is a huge announcement unless your name is Khabib Nurmagomedov (thankfully mine is Chad). Khabib is the number 2 ranked fighter in the division and was hoping to fight for the belt at UFC 206 in Toronto. I have to say this is a pretty sketchy move by the organization, but I understand the business side of the fight game. Conor sells tickets (and has a NY City kind of personality) and this is arguably the most monumental fight in the history of the promotion. I still can’t believe MMA is legal in New York!!! I hope the bars start stocking up on Guinness. The Irish are coming, the Irish are coming.

On a side note, the card is shaping up to be HUGE!!! 3 title fights with this one, Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson and Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Check out what Khabib had to say below:
