Conor McGregor to Face Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, Remains 145 Champ

McGregor, the popular Irish fighter who also holds the featherweight title, and Alvarez will fight November 12 in New York's Madison Square Garden, UFC President Dana White announced Monday night on ESPN.

The fight, which will be the main event on the card of the first UFC event in the city in nearly 20 years, was announced by UFC president Dana White on Monday night. Instead of cutting weight to unite the UFC featherweight title (136 to 145.lbs) in a fight with the interim champ, Jose Aldo, 30, Conor will face Eddie, 32, in this lightweight bout (for fighters 146 to 155.lbs) per MMA Fighting. The card already had two title fights booked, as welterweight champ Tyron Woodley will battle Stephen Thompson, and Joanna Jedrzejcyzk will defend the strawweight title versus Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Only two other fighters, Randy Couture and B.J. Penn, have previously won two UFC belts.

It's all set! Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fans would not have to wait too long now to witness UFC's breakout-star Conor McGregor in action once again inside the octagon.

McGregor may be facing Alvarez at the historic event.

Earlier this year the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) that is leading organisation for MMA (mixed martial arts) was approved for the first time to hold events in the state of NY. This will undoubtedly be the most successful card in the promotion's history.

A press conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday to unveil the full UFC 205 card.

Conor McGregor will have to give up a title, after all. I guess we'll find out soon enough, since top level fights are going to have to be announced for the show soon, considering UFC 205 is on November 12, a date that is fast approaching. Up stepped Nate Diaz at short notice, and stunned McGregor with an upset, with the bout taking place at 170 pounds.

While Conor McGregor is the challenger in the UFC 205 main event, oddsmakers are tabbing the Irishman as a slight favorite against reigning lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez. White says the goal was to make UFC 205 a big event and he definitely considers this mission accomplished.
