“Mystic Mac” is coming off a majority decision victory over Nate Diaz, which he scored in the headlining bout of UFC 202 last month in Las Vegas.

The brash Irish superstar has gone 8-1 in his UFC career, scoring finishes in six of those eight victories.

Meanwhile, Eddie Alvarez is coming off a first-round knockout victory over former champ Rafael dos Anjos, which occurred at July’s UFC Fight Night 90 event in Las Vegas and earned Eddie the promotions lightweight strap.

Prior to his title-earning victory over “RDA”, Alvarez scored decision victories over Gilbert Melendez and former UFC lightweight title holder Anthony “Showtime” Pettis respectively.

If Conor McGregor is to defeat Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in New York, he will become the third two-division champion in UFC history, following in the footsteps of legends BJ Penn and Randy Couture.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
