In a little over two weeks from now at UFC 205, Conor McGregor will enter the octagon at Madison Square Garden arena and attempt to make mixed martial arts history.

With the event just around the corner, the UFC have released an extended preview focusing on the three title fights featured on the main card, including the headliner between McGregor and lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez.

If the slander-spewing Irishman can see past ‘The Underground King’, he’ll not only become lightweight champion, but the first fighter in UFC history to hold titles from two weight divisions simultaneously.

Additionally, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will defend his 170-pound belt for the first time against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in the co-headliner, a pay-per-view seller in its own right.

Also featured on the card will be a tantalising women’s strawweight title fight between current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Karolina Kowalkiewicz, but of whom hail from Poland.
