UFC 205, which will mark the UFC’s long-awaited debut in New York City, was always supposed to be a stacked card. Yet just a few weeks ago, the November 12 event was almost entirely devoid of high-profile fights, which led to a widespread worry that it would not deliver as the card we were hoping for.
Luckily, the UFC has come through, stacking the card with a whopping three title fights, and a long list of relevant bouts featuring prospects, veterans and former champions alike.
The main even of the evening will see featherweight champion Conor McGregor attempt to make history as the first fighter to hold two UFC titles simulatenously when he challenges Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight crown. The co-main event, meanwhile, will see Tyron Woodley defend his welterweight title against streaking karate specialist Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, while the evening’s third title fight will see strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk defend her title against another undefeated Pole in Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
And then there are the card’s other highlights, which will feature appearances from stars like Chris Weidman, Yoel Romero, Donald Cerrone, Frankie Edgar, Miesha Tate, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Rashad Evans and more. Needless to say, UFC 205’s star-studded lineup has fans drooling.
As this massive event draws closer, fight fans are doing their part to add to the hype, spreading the word about the card, creating their own promo videos for it, and as is the case whenever there’s a big UFC event on the horizon, whipping up their own, homemade promotional posters.
Arguably the best fan-made posters we’ve seen comes from talented artist BossLogic, who shared his incredible creations on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

The first of these posters, as you can see, depicts the statue of liberty hoisting two belts skyward – an obvious tribute to McGregor’s history-making ambition to hold to UFC titles simultaneously. The second shows McGregor and Alvarez atop a crowd of legends that includes Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Wayne Gretzky, all of whom have held the spotlight at the hallowed Madison Square Garden in the past.
What do you think of these incredible, fan-made posters? Are they getting you excited for UFC 205 this November 12? Sound off, PENN nation!
