Eddie Alvarez on Conor McGregor: I’ve never felt so unthreatened


Eddie Alvarez spoke with Ariel Helwani of The MMA Hour about his lightweight title defense against Conor McGregor at UFC 205.

“Usually when square off with a man, my heart rate goes up, I feel something,” Alvarez said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “I never felt so unthreatened by a human being as when I was up on a stage with him. That’s the God’s honest truth. I’ve never felt so unthreatened.”

“They have a well-rounded skill set and even if the fight goes to another realm of MMA, from standing up, to ground, to jiu-jitsu, everyone is tough in each one,” Alvarez said. “They’re well versed, to the point where they can hang with some of the toughest guys in the world in any aspect of the sport. And I don’t think [McGregor] can, from what I’ve seen.”

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.
