With just under two weeks to go until UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cerrone, the UFC has released a free fight video to hype up McGregor’s long-awaited return to the cage.
And what better showcase of the Irishman’s skills than his lightweight title fight with Eddie Alvarez back in 2016, when ‘The Notorious’ outclassed and TKO’d Alvarez in the second round of the UFC 205 main event at Madison Square Garden, New York to become the promotion’s first ever simultaneous two-division champion.
Check out the full fight video below, courtesy of the UFC’s official YouTube channel.
UFC 205 marked the last time McGregor won a fight but, despite his inactivity over the last three years, the former UFC featherweight and lightweight champ is still the biggest star in MMA and one of the biggest stars in combat sports. The SBG Ireland talent last fought at UFC 229, where he was submitted by undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the main event.
UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cerrone takes place later this month, Jan. 18 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
