McGregor vs Alvarez Fight stake
Conor McGregor, the featherweight titleholder is venturing up to challenge for Eddie Alvarez’s lightweight title in the main encounter between two sitting champions of isolated weight divisions since UFC 94, in 2009.
McGregor touches base off the back of two battles with Nate Diaz in the heavier welterweight class, and has reacted wildly to feedback that he has not yet shielded his featherweight title since winning it inside 13 seconds against Jose Aldo last December.
Facilitate down the bill, Stephen Thompson will attempt to oust Tyron Woodley as ruler of the welterweight division, after Woodley guaranteed the crown from Robbie Lawlor at UFC 201.
