Lost for words

If you weren’t excited for UFC 205 before, don’t fret, you will be after watching this.

On November 12, 2016 the UFC, the world’s largest MMA promotion, will finally bring an event to New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden.

The headline act is a legitimate superfight with featherweight champion Conor McGregor hoping to make history by taking on veteran 155-er Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight scrap.

If The Notorious succeeds, he’ll be come the first ever fighter to hold two belts in two separate divisions simultaneously in the UFC.

A welterweight title fight between champion Tyron Woodley and karate sensation Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson will serve as the co-main, with Polish duo Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Joanna Jedrzejczyk slugging it out for the women’s strawweight belt also featuring on the stacked card.

If all that still hasn’t gotten your heart racing for the huge event, this promo that aired during the live broadcast of UFC 204 surely will.

Bring it on.
