The biggest-ever UFC card went down last night (Nov. 12, 2016) from the famed Madison Square Garden in the form of UFC 205 and the event delivered on all cylinders. With so many pivotal fights taking place, there was bound to be many takeaways from the landmark event.
Let’s take a look at the five biggest:
1) Conor McGregor Is More Than Just Talk
Many fans criticized the UFC for booking Conor McGregor against Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title given the fact that the Irishman has yet to defend the 145-pound title he won last December. Many have also criticized the “Notorious” one, claiming that he talked his way into another big fight.
When the cage door closed, however, McGregor proved that he was more than just talk.
After dropping “The Underground King” multiple times in the opening round, McGregor finished the job in the second with a brutal combination. It was a dominant performance from McGregor and he made history in the process, becoming the first man in promotional history to hold two titles at one time.
Now we can only fathom at what his next move may be.
