UFC 205 takes place on Sunday the 13th November and the main event features enigmatic Irishman Conor McGregor up against the USA’s Eddie Alvarez. Aside from the main event, there are also a couple of other intriguing contests listed on the card including Jim Miller v Thiago Alves, Rashad Evans v Tim Kennedy, Chris Weidman v Yoel Romero and Kelvin Gastelum v Donald Cerrone.

Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor is usually outspoken but his claim of being the ‘King of everything’ is probably a bridge too far and while the 28-year-old remains the favourite to hold onto the UFC featherweight belt, his opponent has been much quieter. Alvarez has publicly stated that it would be an ‘honour’ to shut him up and teach him the meaning of the word humility.

One of the most controversial figures in world sport returns to the octagon this weekend to take on the USA’s Eddie Alvarez. Conor McGregor is never far away from the headlines and his antics have even earned him the wrath of UFC boss Dana White but no matter what anyone does, says or threatens, the dogged Irishman won’t stop running his mouth or entertaining the masses.

McGregor is giving a weight and reach advantage to Alvarez, but the tenacious champion makes up for those shortcomings with his ferocity and speed. Both fighters have suffered a loss in their past five bouts with McGregor’s most recent victory coming against the man who last beat him; Nate Diaz. Aside from bragging rights being on the line
