McGregor vs. Alvarez to Headline UFC 205 in New York
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be hosting its first ever event in New York on November 12th. Soon after mixed martial arts (MMA) was legalized in the state of New York, the UFC announced it would be hosting UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden. As if debuting in arguably the most popular sports arena in the world wasn’t enough, the UFC recently announced the main event would feature Conor McGregor, currently the most popular fighter on the planet. He will be facing off in a lightweight title fight against Eddie Alvarez, the current lightweight champion. If Conor were to win, he would become the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold multiple title belts (in the featherweight and lightweight divisions).
Besides the massive draw and excitement that Conor McGregor brings, the UFC 205 card has multiple intriguing matchups that will likely make it the biggest event in UFC history. Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will be defending his title against Stephen Thompson, Strawweight title holder Joanna Jedrzejczyk is facing off against Karolina Kowalkiewicz, and fan favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone is squaring off against Kelvin Gastelum.
A major success of the UFC has been the ability for its fighters to connect with fans through social media. Look for the fighters on the UFC 205 card to promote the event heavily through Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook in the days leading up to November 12th.
