on

Eddie Alvarez recently appeared on The MMA Hour to promote his upcoming fight with Conor McGregor at UFC 205. During the interview, Alvarez commented on McGregor’s fans and the UFC 205 pre-fight presser.

“It just sort of reiterated to me what his fan base is,” Alvarez said. “His fan base is him. They’re people who, it’s all perception. It seems like he has a lot of WWE fans, guys who don’t know much about fighting at all, they are just like him. You can have them fans, they’re not the fans I want anyway. You can boo all day long.”

“I don’t want fans who don’t know s**t about MMA,” Alvarez said. “I’d rather have a fan who knows the sport, enjoys the sport, and can see value.”

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.
