Who’s fighting on the main card of UFC 205?
The main event of UFC’s debut in Madison Square Garden will see UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor, 28, take on UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez, 32, in what could be a historic fight.

Tyron Woodley, 34, will also defend his Welterweight championship against Stephen Thompson, 33, while Women’s Strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, 29, will put her title on the line in a fight with Karolina Kowalkiewicz, 31. Chris Weidman, 32, and Yoel Romero, 39, will go toe-to-toe in a Middleweight fight while former UFC Women’s Bantemweight champ, Miesha Tate, 30, will face Raquel Pennington, 28.
Are there any other fights?
Yes! UFC Fight Pass was supposed to show Thiago Alves, 33, versus Jim Miller, 33, but Thiago failed to make weight, per MMA Junkie. Liz Carmouche, 32, versus Katlyn Chookagian, 27, is still scheduled. On the Preliminary card on Fox Sports 1 (at 8:00 PM ET) Frankie Edgar, 35, takes on Jeremy Stephens, 30, Michael Johnson, 49, fights Khabib Nurmagomedov, 28, Tim Boetsch, 35, meets Rafael Natal, 33, in the octagon and Vicente Luque, 24, fights Belal Muhammad, 28.
Everyone really just tuning in for McGregor Vs. Alvarez, right?
After their explosive press conference where Conor had to be held back from fighting Eddie then and there, fans are eager to see these two throw down. Conor’s trademark trash talking has added plenty of fuel to the fire. He’s slightly the odds-on favorite to win, per CBS Sports, so fight fans could see two championship belts around the “Notorious” fighter’s waist at the end of the night.
