As it does, it continues to evolve into one of the best UFC cards of all time.
The biggest fight on the card, unsurprisingly, is its newly announced main event, which will see Eddie Alvarez defend his UFC lightweight title against reigning UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor. Alvarez won the title in July by smashing the streaking Rafael Dos Anjos to a first-round TKO win. McGregor, meanwhile, won featherweight gold with a 13-second KO of Jose Aldo last December – though he’s spent his last two fights battling Nate Diaz at welterweight. If the Irishman is successful against Alvarez, he’ll become the first fighter ever to hold two UFC titles simultaneously.
