At UFC 205 on November 12, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, two league champions will fight for only the second time when lightweight title holder Eddie Alvarez fights the Notorious featherweight Conor McGregor. Alvarez appeared recently on on the Talking Brawls podcast, and made some predictions.

“Here’s the thing: he wants my belt,” said Alvarez, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “He says, ‘beg, beg, beg’ but he wants my belt. My money’s already my money. It’s already cashed, there ain’t nothing he’s gonna do about that. It’s my money. The belt, he ain’t sniffing at this belt. He ain’t got a shot at this belt. So I’m getting what I want at the end of the day. He will not get what he wants.”

“He’s single-handedly picked the best style matchups for himself all throughout his reign in the UFC. If you look carefully, you understand that this guy hasn’t put himself against a guy that can threaten him on the ground. The only one he’s done that against is Chad Mendes on late notice because he had to. Other than that, he fought off stand up fighters who don’t do ground attacks at all. So he got to be able to be himself and not have to adjust ever to anybody else’s strengths.”

“I’ll do whatever the f*** I want in any aspect against him. The opponents he’s fought allow him to look great. That’s the issue. That’s what these WWF fans who follow him don’t see. They see a guy who’s fighting or playing to his strengths so he can do what he wants and be good at it.

“I’ll do whatever the f*** I want. If I want to stand, I’ll stand. He don’t move his head, he gets hit a ton. Chad Mendes has a tiny little reach and was popping him all over the place with overhand rights and left hooks before he took him down. His defense is atrocious. His offense is good. He’s offensively a good fighter when it comes to boxing and things but his defense is f***ing terrible.

“A guy like me, I can go wherever. I can kick, I can punch, I can takedown, I can submit, and I can do it all f***ing night.”

“I think I hit him with a hard, clean f***ing shot, he goes down and I submit him. He gets hit with every left hook you throw. I could close my eyes and hit his big ass head.”

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.
