With the history on the line this Saturday night at UFC 205, Conor McGregor believes he will look back at his fight with Eddie Alvarez as the moment he was forever immortalised in this sport.
Fight week well and truly kicked off yesterday as the world’s media and fans looked on as the six title-fight competitors did open workouts and interviews inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
‘The Notorious’ stole the show it wasn’t just due to his display of MMA skills. At one point, he even took a basketball, shot and scored in one take.

He later spoke with UFC correspondent Megan Olivi and revealed what this weekend’s fight meant to him.
“Saturday night I’ll be immortal,” McGregor said. “I get the second belt, raise it up, never been done before. It means absolutely everything to me. It’s my life’s work. We’re ready.”
When asked for his prediction on the fight, the UFC featherweight champion believes he will put 155lb champ, Eddie Alvarez away in the first round by knockout. However, this time he eluded to the possibility of a finish we haven’t seen before.
“I feel I can do it many ways,” McGregor said. “I can paint a picture inside that Octagon. All you need to do is look at my previous fights. They’re all different.”
