The event, which is scheduled for November 12, will mark the organization’s first-ever trip to New York City. In celebration of this momentous occasion, the UFC has stacked the card with high-profile fights – a whopping three of which will be for world titles.
The most major of these title fights will occur in the main event, when UFC featherweight champ Conor McGregor will attempt to become the first fighter in UFC history to hold two titles simultaneously by taking the lightweight crown from reigning champ Eddie Alvarez.
The second of UFC 205’s three title fights will see welterweight champ Tyron Woodley attempt his first title defense against streaking karate specialist Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
The third, finally, will see strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk defend her title against fellow undefeated Polish fighter Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
In advance of this massive card, the UFC has released a spine tingling promotional video that features the 6 fighters involved in this trio of massive title fights. You can watch that video above – but be warned: it’ll make the wait for UFC 205 even more difficult.
November 12 can’t come soon enough.
