Eddie Alvarez Not Threatened By Conor McGregor, Natalya Knocks Out Her Front Teeth, TNA Bound For Glory

Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor

- Eddie Alvarez told The MMA Hour on Monday that he’s never felt as unthreatened as he did when Conor McGregor starred him down at the UFC 205 press conference last week. He believes his fight against McGregor will be his easiest in quite some time because McGregor doesn’t have the all-around skill of many of the fighters that fight at 155-pounds. Alvarez will defend the UFC lightweight championship against McGregor at UFC 205 next month from Madison Square Garden in New York City. MMAFighting.com has more at this link.
