Conor McGregor to win in the First Round at 11/4 with SkyBet

After a decade of dispute with the New York State Athletics Commission, the UFC and the MMA community finally got what it deserves by being made legal in the state for the first time.

Fittingly enough, the first event will be held at the historic Madison Square Gardens this Saturday night, where a certain wild Irishman called Conor McGregor is heading the bill in a 155lb title fight against dangerous Philadelphia native and current champion Eddie Alvarez. The bookmakers make the challenger McGregor a top price favourite at 4/6 with Betfair, while the champion Alvarez is the slight underdog at 6/4 with Ladbrokes.

Eddie Alvarez has proved himself in multiple promotions and has fought the best at this weight class all over the world. When he was the champion at Bellator, UFC fans were calling and the promotion followed by signing him to fight Donald Cerrone; a fight he lost.

Alvarez then convincingly beat two former champions in a row in the form of Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis to get himself in the title shot conversation, a wish granted back in July where he TKO’d Rafael Dos Anjos inside the first round. It was a moment of validation for this 32-year old fighter, but on Saturday night he faces by far his sternest examination to date.

Conor McGregor has developed into a force of nature. After steamrolling his way through the featherweight division the Dublin native took on Nate Diaz at late notice in March and lost, before demanding the rematch, getting it, and improving to beat Nate in a legendary five round war at UFC 202 back in August.

Luckily after some intense negotiations after the Diaz fight, Conor McGregor Vs Eddie Alvarez was announced to put a cherry on top of a monumentally stacked New York card including three title fights.

McGregor is on the brink of creating history by becoming the first man to hold two belts at the same time in the UFC. He possesses the power and technical ability to control this fight early and he will look to guide Alvarez onto some heavy shots early.
