Fever pitch has been reached in the hype for this weekend’s UFC 205. Heading for the first time to New York City, the historic card will take place in the iconic Madison Square Garden. Home to some of the greatest moments in sports history, the garden will play a huge part in the UFC’s future.

Making it possibly even more historic is the UFC 205 main event. Conor McGregor will take on lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the top spot, in a highly anticipated bout. Should he win, ‘The Notorious’ would become the first simultaneous two-weight champ.

Eddie Alvarez Ain’t Buying The Hype

After so much talk and antagonistic tactics from Conor McGregor, it would be easy to assume he’s in Eddie Alvarez’s head. According to the lightweight champ, that ain’t happening. Unlike McGregor’s other opponents, Alvarez says he doesn’t plan on standing the whole fight with ‘The Notorious.’

“I think I’m going to land that big shot,” he said on the New York Knicks basketball court at Madison Square Garden. “I think this guy’s worried about a lot of grappling and a lot of wrestling. I think where it’s going to end up, when his mind’s on that I’m going to land that big shot and then I’m going to submit him.”

“Hey, I’m blessed,” he said. “Whether you’ve got a red, white and orange flag, it don’t matter what you go. You’re here and I appreciate you guys.”

“Magic, pure magic,” he said. “Look, I fought 13 years to put my life to put myself on this stage, in front of the biggest crowd, and I am super-excited to go out there and do something violent, and do something high-paced.”
