UFC 205 press conference: Watch Conor McGregor, Eddie Alvarez & more at 6 PM EST

UFC 205

With the UFC 205 card essentially finalized, the main attractions on the show will meet the media and fans Tuesday afternoon at Madison Square Garden at a 6 PM EST press conference.

On Monday night, UFC announced that featherweight champion Conor McGregor will attempt to become the promotion's first dual-division champion in company history when he faces current UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the main event.

The show will be the first MMA event in MSG and the first UFC event since 1995 in Buffalo. The sport had been banned there until finally being legalized this year after years of political battle.

Former middleweight champion Chris Weidman makes his return to action against Yoel Romero in what is basically a middleweight title shot eliminator, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will look to make the first defense of his title against Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson, and strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will face Karolina Kowalkiewicz in a battle of Polish-born fighters.

As if that wasn't enough, the undercard features Frankie Edgar vs. Jeremy Stephens, Rashad Evans dropping to middleweight to face the returning Tim Kennedy, former UFC women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, and more!

Watch the presser above starting at 6 PM EST.
