UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor tries to make UFC history Saturday against lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez when he tries to become the promotion’s first ever simultaneous two-weight champion.
McGregor is coming off a majority decision win over Nate Diaz at UFC 196 and is eager to add yet another record to his long list of accomplishments in the UFC. He’ll take on lightweight Eddie Alvarez, who won the belt from Rafael dos Anjos in July, is one of the hardest hitters in the entire division and has a solid wrestling pedigree to go with it.
