Conor McGregor vs. Eddie Alvarez: UFC 205 Preview – Pre-Fight – Skill Breakdown / Film Study
In one of the most anticipated main events, on the most anticipated fight card of the year, Saturday, November 12th, at Madison Square Garden -UFC 205– newly crowned 155 lb. (Lightweight) champion Eddie Alvarez (+135 )will defend his title against ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor (-150). While many purists view this fight as a tad premature, it’s a business decision that the UFC has made, and regardless of who wins, the fallout shall be interesting.
Here I will breakdown the fight in three phases (and briefly touch on mental toughness): 1.Striking and Distance management etc. 2. “The In-Between” game, which will include clinching and takedowns, as well as defence. and 3. Groundwork, submissions, and transitions as well as ground striking.
Next contest winner will be decided by who wins this, how, and for something new, whom they will face next. For example Conor via TKO rd. 1 TKO / featherweight Jose Aldo or Eddie Alvarez round 1 TKO / Khabib. I don’t make picks, those are merely examples using the number one contenders.
Get a notepad and wash your hands, grab a notepad, as I’ll try to cram about an hours worth of information into a 15-minute video (if possible). Enjoy, cheers.
