“We’re going to reveal the quit.” —Eddie Alvarez
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez expects to finish Conor McGregor straight-up Temple of Doom style at UFC 205, which means “Notorious” is going to have his heart ripped out and displayed to fans.
Probably not the best look for the promotion’s first show in New York, particularly after working so hard to overturn laws that banned mixed martial arts (MMA) in the “Empire State,” but that’s certainly one way to put a stamp on his first-ever 155-pound title defense.
“From what I’ve seen in the past and what he’s done in the past, (his heart) is very questionable and I’m not the only one who’s questioned it,” Alvarez told FOX Sports. “I think he has quit in him and I think it takes a tad of adversity and him to get into a little bit of a fight to pull it out of him.”
McGregor, who holds the 145-pound title but has yet to defend it, was submitted by Nate Diaz at UFC 196. While he would later avenge that loss at UFC 202, Alvarez saw enough to feel confident about his chances next month in the “Big Apple.”
“On November 12, I’m going to pull it out of him and I’m going to show it to millions of people and the crowd,” he continued. “Everybody’s going to see it. We’re going to reveal the quit.”
