Conor McGregor to Fight Eddie Alvarez in UFC 205 Main Event

UFC 205 is scheduled to take place Nov. 12 at Madison Square Garden. The main event will feature Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez battling it out for the lightweight title.

Should McGregor, the current featherweight champion, win the fight, he would become the first-ever simultaneous two-weight world champion.

“This is the fight the fans wanted, and I’m excited that our very first event at Madison Square Garden will be headlined by Eddie Alvarez defending the lightweight title against Conor McGregor,” UFC president Dana White told ESPN. “This card has three world title fights and is the best card in UFC history.”

Tickets for UFC 205 go on sale Friday. It’s the first professional mixed martial arts event to take place in Madison Square Garden since a 1997 ban on the sport was lifted earlier this year.
