on

UFC President Dana White appeared on ESPN Sportscenter on Tuesday to promote tickets going on sale for UFC 205 at MSG. During the interview, White commented Conor McGregor fighting Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title at UFC 205.

“He wants to try to gain both belts, and he will give up one of the titles after that fight in New York,” White said of McGregor. When asked which title McGregor will have to give up? “good question,” White replied.

“He’s got some stuff going on right now, some personal stuff that I’m sure he’ll announce when he’s ready,” White said. “But this fight made sense.”

White was asked what’s it like negotiating with McGregor, “It’s not that bad. He’s an intelligent guy. And the thing that I love and respect about Conor McGregor is that he wants to fight everybody. He’s my kind of guy.”

UFC 205 will take place at Madison Square Garden on November 12th with the main card airing on PPV and the prelims airing on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
