#5 Conor McGregor trolls ‘The Underground King’ Eddie Alvarez
After engaging in a pair of entertaining battles with LW veteran Nate Diaz, McGregor faced Alvarez at the historic UFC 205 card in New York. Headlining the promotion’s first New York card at NYC’s iconic Madison Square Garden, ‘Notorious’ came out relaxed and loose; tagging his opponent from weird angles.
McGregor caught his orthodox opponent not once but thrice, with his piston of a left hand, dropping Alvarez three times within the 1st frame of the fight. In the 2nd round ‘Notorious’ placed both his hands behind his back, taunting Alvarez and daring him to strike.
Alvarez didn’t take the bait, not that it made any difference anyway, since the outspoken Irishman decimated Alvarez with a beautiful 4-punch combo right on the button just a few moments later.
