Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will make its long-awaited -- and highly anticipated -- Madison Square Garden debut in New York, N.Y., on Nov. 12, 2016, featuring a "super" fight between Lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez, and Featherweight kingpin, Conor McGregor, in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event of the evening. The two champions will battle for Alvarez's 155-pound strap (McGregor's 145-pound title will not be on the line).
UFC 205 will actually feature an unprecedented three world title fights, with Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley defending his 170-pound belt for the first time ever against Stephen Thompson in the co-main event, while women's Strawweight queenpin, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, will put her 115-pound strap at stake against fellow Polish fighter, Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Indeed, White has already called UFC 205 the "biggest, baddest card ever" and, for once, he doesn't appear to be over exaggerating. To get the ball rolling, White and Co. will gather the stars of UFC 205 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden this evening to kickoff the landmark event.
