As Nate Diaz would say, “I’m not surprised.”
The Champion vs. Champion match will take place at the UFC’s debut show in New York, and according to Bovada.lv, McGregor is going to win the lightweight championship at -140 to Alvarez’s +110. McGregor is already the UFC featherweight champion.
Alvarez defeated Rafael Dos Anjos to win the lightweight championship this year. Alvarez is also the former Bellator lightweight champion. McGregor is coming off two fights with Nate Diaz, one of which he lost by submission, and the other that he won by unanimous decision.
