We’re just one month away from possibly the biggest event in UFC history, as Madison Square Garden plays host to UFC 205. There are three title fights at the top of the pay-per-view, including the main event between lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez and featherweight champ Conor McGregor, and gate records and PPV buys are expected to be through the roof.For any McGregor fans based in Ireland, that means you’ll essentially be seeing him fight Alvarez at sunrise.
This isn’t the first time the UFC has gone for a four-hour PPV main card. In 2012, UFC 144 in Japan had seven fights on the main card, although the only title fight that night was the first matchup between Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson. UFC 190: Rousey vs. Correia also had seven main card bouts, but only one title fight. UFC 205 will have six main card fights, in addition to the title fight tripleheader.
Here’s the November 12th PPV lineup, with the preliminary card bout order still to be determined.
The addition of Alvarez vs. McGregor as the main event means UFC 205 will now feature three title fights with welterweight champion Tyron Woodley meeting Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and strawweight queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk putting her belt on the line against Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Both McGregor and Alvarez will also appear at the UFC 205 press conference on Wednesday (AEST) at Madison Square Garden.
As much as Dana White wants to say Conor McGregor is cutting down to 145 and defending his featherweight title next, ‘The Notorious One’ does whatever he wants. And what he wants is to fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title. So, at UFC 205 – the UFC’s first event at Madison Square Garden – McGregor will look to become the first-ever fighter to hold two belts simultaneously when he challenges Alvarez on November 12. Bovada opened the odds with McGregor as a -185 favorite with the comeback on Alvarez coming in at +150 for a potential fight between the two after the Irishman’s win over Nate Diaz at UFC 202.Alvarez has criticized McGregor in the media, saying “he’s just not a championship fighter. Not a five, five-minute round fighter. Never has been, never will be. Some guys can have the chops for it and some guys don’t.”McGregor has fought at lightweight throughout his career, as he held the 155 lbs title in CWFC before making his UFC debut.
UFC 205 Live
Stats: 32-years-old. His 5′ 9″ stature makes him the same height as Conor McGregor, and his 40-inch leg reach also equals the Notorious. However, McGregor (74 in) holds a five-inch reach advantage over the American (69 in).
Record: 28-4, 3-1 UFC. 15 of his wins came by way of knockout, seven were submission victories while six went the distance. He’s had just the one knockout loss, he’s been submitted twice, has seen one judges’ decisions go against him and he’s won 13 of his last 15 fights.
He made his professional debut on December 14 2003, knocking out Anthony Ladonna in the first round under the Ring of Combat banner.
Achievements: Two-time National Prep All-American.
He’s also been the champion of pretty much every organisation he’s fought for. Two-time Bellator lightweight champion, BodogFIGHT welterweight champion, MFC welterweight champion, Reality Fighting welterweight champion. In his own words, not being a champion doesn’t feel right to him.
Biggest win: Although he has numerous impressive scalps in his trophy cabinet, his UFC belt-winning performance against Rafael dos Anjos is arguably the most spectacular of them all.
The Brazilian came into the bout off the back of a five-fight win-streak, an incredible feat considering 155 is the most populated and arguably the most stacked division in the world’s largest MMA promotion. RDA was the favourite having beaten the likes of Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis to claim the title before successfully defending the belt by annihilating Donald Cerrone in just 66 seconds.
However, just like he always does, Alvarez turned up to fight and had his gaze firmly focused on the last belt he needed to complete his collection. He began gaining momentum by cracking RDA with blistering combinations early and eventually laid on so much damage that Herb Dean was forced to step in and award him the TKO victory at 3:49 of the first round.
The win marked only the second time RDA had been finished by strikes in his entire career and a little bit of trivia that you won’t hear on any of the UFC 205 promos is that it made Alvarez the first fighter to have won titles in both the UFC and Bellator.
Strengths: We’ll go into more detail in a future article, but for now we’ll keep it general.
Alvarez is as complete a martial artist as you’ll find. He’s a gifted wrestler who’s been boxing since he was a kid. Add that to the fact Mark Henry is his striking coach and Ricardo Almeida takes care of the grappling aspect of his game, it is arguable that he will be the most well-rounded fighter Conor McGregor has been matched against, aside from maybe Jose Aldo.
Some of Alvarez’s other biggest attributes are his toughness, his fight IQ and his experience. He’s held multiple belts throughout his career and has fought in countries such as Japan, Canada, Costa Rica and Russia.
Prior to entering the UFC, Alvarez was regarded as one of the most aggressive strikers on the planet, but since moving up to the big leagues, he has adopted a more reserved, intelligent approach to the sport in order to secure the win. He admitted in that Helwani interview that he has tried to find the right balance between entertaining the fans and making sure his hand gets raised.
Judging by his last fight against RDA, he may very well have perfected the art.
