Conor McGregor Gets Shot at Eddie Alvarez

Nurmagomedov (23-0) was expected to face lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 or UFC 206, but the fight promotion opted to put featherweight champion Conor McGregor agaisnt Alvarez instead. He was to meet then-lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos for the 155-pound title at UFC 196, but an injury to the Brazilian derailed the bout. After all, White had seemingly ruled McGregor out for the UFC's long-awaited return to NY and had previously said he needed to defend his featherweight title next or vacate it.

According to White, McGregor will retain that title through UFC 205, also giving him the chance to join B.J. Penn and Randy Couture as the only UFC fighters to win titles in multiple weight classes.

After four Las Vegas fights in a row for McGregor, Irish fans are likely to be attracted by the considerably more feasible trip to NY to support the Dubliner as he aims to become the first fighter to hold two UFC belts at the same time.

While some of the biggest names in UFC will be in the cage for the big event, Ronda Rousey is also added to the mix of the potential fighters who could return to the cage. I understand that he sells lots of tickets, but it gets to a point it stops being a sport and it becomes a circus.

The 28-year-old ruled out the possibility of surrendering his featherweight title belt any time soon - even if he wins the lightweight title. "I had a bruised foot". "I don't want to fight with the UFC, I just want to go on with my life and they can go on with theirs". And for all of you Irish fans out there, remember, 'when one of us goes to war, we all go to war'. "It'll take an army to come take those belts off me".

McGregor responded by calling Alvarez "a bum" and "a novice".
