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.
