Ahead of UFC 205, where UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will be stepping into the Octagon to fight Eddie Alvarez in a highly anticipated champion vs. champion fight for the UFC lightweight title, McGregor’s team has continued to release ‘The Mac Life’ videos of McGregor’s preparation for the historic fight.
In the latest Mac Life video, McGregor can be seen grappling with SBG Ireland head coach John Kavanagh, as well as his JiuJitsu coach Dillon Danis, and several other of his SBG Ireland teammates.

The fight between McGregor and Alvarez is set to headline UFC 205 on November 12th in what many consider to be arguably the biggest card in the history of the UFC. In addition to being the inaugural UFC event in New York, the event could very well see Mcgregor enter the UFC history books as the first simultaneous two-division UFC champion. In addition, McGregor could potentially become just the third man in the history of the UFC to hold belts in two weight classes.
With that being said, UFC President Dana White has remained adamant that McGregor must vacate one of the titles if he emerges from UFC 205 victorious, stating that it would be unfair of McGregor to hold up two weight divisions. In addition, White has revealed that McGregor will be making a “personal” announcement after the fight, with reports indicating that the Irish superstar will be stepping away from the sport for roughly a year in order to focus on home life with his longtime girlfriend, Dee Devlin.
