Conor McGregor: I'm going to KO Eddie Alvarez in one round!
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the UFC announced that McGregor would move up a weight class to take on new 155-pound king Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.
The announcement shocked the mixed martial arts world as it was widely expected that Alvarez would defend the lightweight crown against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
However, they decided against handing the undefeated Russian a title shot and opted instead to have McGregor face 'The Underground King', who reached the summit of the lightweight division at UFC Fight Night 90 back in July.
