"This is the fight the fans wanted", he told ESPN, "and I'm excited that our very first event at Madison Square Garden will be headlined by Eddie Alvarez defending the lightweight title against Conor McGregor".

McGregor was said to still be feeling the affects of that five-round war but despite White's advice was keen to fight in November.

In the intermediate aftermath of McGregor's slim decision win over Diaz in UFC 202, Dana White said that there would not be a third meeting between the two fighters.

And to make things official, earlier today NY hosted the pre-fight press conference for what is now the biggest card of the year.

The stacked card also includes new welterweight champion Tyron Woodley's first title defense against Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson, along with strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk's defense against fellow Pole Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Both Alvarez and McGregor are due to attend a press conference at Madison Square Garden this evening, which is scheduled to begin at 11pm Irish time.

The UFC is making New York's premiere event one to remember.

With a victory, McGregor would become the first fighter ever to hold simultaneous multiple weight class titles in the UFC.

I understand that he sells a lot, but it gets to a limit when it's no longer a sport, it becomes a circus.
