Now let’s take a look at the full results from UFC 205: McGregor vs Alvarez.**
This past Saturday (Nov. 12, 2016) the UFC hosted its first ever event in New York City inside Madison Square Garden. UFC 205: “McGregor vs. Alvarez” was a star-studded affair and one of the promotion’s biggest cards of all time.
The pay-per-view (PPV) event was headlined by two championship bouts, as Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez fought for the lightweight title and Tyron Woodley defended his welterweight strap against Stephen Thompson.
In addition to those title fights, there were also three more championship fights included on the card, as Joanna Jedrzejczyk defended her women’s strawweight title against Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Tyron Woodley took on Stephen Thompson for the welterweight strap and Chris Weidman went up against Yoel Romero for an interim middleweight title.
The night did not disappoint, as all four champions retained their belts in decisive fashion (highlights HERE). The night also featured several other great fights that had fans on their feet cheering (see them HERE). In total there were 13 fights on the card and every single one delivered in some way.
