The historic UFC 205 event in New York, which is set to take place at Madison Square Garden on November 12th officially has a main event. Conor McGregor vs Eddie Alvarez will take center stage as the UFC makes its New York debut.
McGregor will try and become the first ever simultaneous multi-division champion in UFC history as he tries to win the UFC Lightweight Championship from Eddie Alvarez. This will easily be the biggest fight in Alvarez’s career, and will be his first title defense since taking taking the UFC Lightweight Championship from Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC Night 90 earlier this year.
UFC President Dana White confirmed the bout on ESPN earlier tonight.
