UFC 205: Eddie Alvarez And Conor McGregor Make Weight, Face-Off at MSG

eddie alvarez

The weigh-ins and the weigh-in ceremonies for UFC 205, and all three title fights for the card are a go.

After Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor weighed in at 154.6 and 154.4, respectively, earlier today, the two had an intense faceoff at Madison Square Garden this afternoon.

If you missed it earlier, Kelvin Gastelum has been pulled from the card, after he failed to make weight for a scheduled bout with Donald Cerrone.

The only other fighter who didn’t make weight was Thiago Alves, who came in several pounds over for a lightweight fight with Jim Miller. Alves was fined 20% of his purse, but the bout is proceeding.

Ronda Rousey was on hand at today’s ceremonies, as the former bantamweight champ came out and squared off with new champ, Amanda Nunes. The two are scheduled to fight at UFC 207, December 30th.
