UFC 205 in New York is undoubtedly going to be an epic evening of mixed martial arts. The way the UFC has structured the card is perfect for MMA’s debut in The Big Apple. And who better to lead this historic night than the Notorious One, Conor McGregor.

McGregor had campaigned for a shot at the lightweight title after he became the UFC featherweight champion nearly a year ago. He says it has always been his dream to become a two-division world champion.

At the time, it was Brazilian Rafael Dos Anjos who held the 155-pound strap. But Eddie Alvarez knocked that guy out and took the belt away from him. Now the UFC is set to invade New York – Alvarez’s hometown – and the lightweight champ is ready to defend his turf.

The UFC recently released an epic “Live Like Legends” promo for the event which is set to take place less than a month away. In the video, fighters who are on the card like Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Stephen Thompson can be seen making their way to the iconic Madison Square Garden.
