Eddie Alvarez

UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez offered his prediction to his main event fight against Conor McGregor at UFC 205 on Saturday. Speaking after his Open Workout on Wednesday, Alvarez commented:

“I think I’m going to land that big shot,” Alvarez boldly proclaimed. “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.”

He also took a moment to address the magnitude of the event:

“Magic, pure magic,” Alvarez said of everything surrounding his fight this weekend. “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.”

UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor will take place on Saturday from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
