Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champions Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor clashed in a Lightweight bout last night (Nov. 12, 2016) at UFC 205 inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.
Alvarez walked into this fight with a ton of confidence.

Like his opponent, McGregor had few doubts of another stoppage win, and the Irishman would accomplish something truly significant if he was able to make his vision a reality.

Once Alvarez returned to his feet, the pace slowed a bit, and Alvarez was finally able to land some of his own shots without getting clobbered for his efforts. It was as good a round as possible for the Irishman.
