Current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was in fine form during the recent UFC 205 press conference last week, ripping into his upcoming UFC 205 opponent Eddie Alvarez and making a brazen prediction on how the fight will play out.

The media was out in force for the presser and one question put towards the brash Irishman was how he sees the lightweight title fight ending. Unsurprisingly, McGregor answered as you would expect, with his hand being raised and Alvarez knocked out inside the very first round.

Coming up against an experienced grappler like Alvarez makes Mystic Mac’s prediction sound even more audacious, but certainly┬ánot something he’s chiming for the first time.

Amazingly, McGregor mentioned Alvarez and knocking him out in first-round knockouts a few years back, before his eye-opening debut for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

At that time, Clay Guida and Jim Miller were considered top lightweights in the UFC, while Alvarez was fighting under the Bellator MMA banner.

McGregor has predicted first-round knockouts on various occasions since dropping Marcus Brimage to the canvas on his UFC debut, which turned out to be right on a few more often than not.

If Alvarez is added to that list is yet to be seen, but you can be certain the Philadelphia native will have his hands full on the night.

UFC 205 will take place on November 12th at Madison Square Garden arena in New York City, New York.

James McDonald, Pundit Arena.
