Mind blown. Procrastination pays off. Three days before tickets go on sale and roughly 46 days until Showtime, the UFC finally finalized their debut event in New York City’s Madison Square Garden. And its absolutely stacked. UFC 205!!!

No questions. No “buts”. No “what ifs”. UFC 205 on November 12th in New York City will be the best card the UFC has ever offered up to the Fight Gods.
Whatever kind of human sacrifice the UFC needs to throw at the alter of the Fight Gods they must do it, right here, right now, in order to make sure UFC 205 stays intact. At the top of the card Conor McGregor returns for his long anticipated shot of holding two UFC belts at the same time when he takes on lightweight title holder Eddie Alvarez. From BoDog to Dream to Bellator, now to co-headlining the biggest UFC event in history, Eddie Alvarez deserves this massive UFC 205 payday.
The undercard of UFC 205 features not one but two title fights. Tyron Woodley puts his belt on the line for the first time versus striking savant Stephen Thompson then Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s strawweight belt is up for grabs as she takes on fellow striker Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Stacked! Insanely good!
UFC 205 also blesses us with Chris Weidman vs. Yoel Romero, Donald Cerrone vs. Kelvin Gastelum, Miesha Tate vs. Raquel Pennington, Frankie Edgar vs. Jeremy Stephens AND Tim Kennedy vs. Rashad Evans. On paper UFC 205 is gunning for that GOAT card status.
