Current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will look to make history by defeating current UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez this Saturday night in New York.

If the brash Irish star is able to dethrone Alvarez in the evenings main event, he will become the first fighter in the promotions history to hold two belts simultaneously.

“Mystic Mac” was showcased on the UFC’s official Snapchat account earlier today where he confidently posed with two UFC belts.

The photo was captioned with the following statement: “Let me save you the trouble of having to take my picture Saturday night.”

Conor McGregor was last seen in action at August’s UFC 202 event in Las Vegas where he scored a majority decision victory over bitter rival Nate Diaz, this after the pair engaged in a twenty-five minute slugfest that was voted “Fight of the night”.

Prior to that, “Mystic Mac” had suffered a second-round submission loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 this past March. Both of Conor’s fights with Nate took place inside the UFC’s welterweight division (170-pounds).

Since joining the UFC ranks, McGregor has gone 8-1, scoring finishes in six of those eights wins.

Meanwhile, Eddie Alvarez became the UFC lightweight champion this past July in Las Vegas when he knocked out former division kingpin Rafael dos Anjos in the very first-round.

Prior to that, Alvarez had scored split-decision victories over Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis respectively.

BREAKING! Tim Kennedy will not get a replacement opponent for UFC 205 in New York

Earlier today news broke that former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans had been forced out of his scheduled UFC 205 bout with Tim Kennedy.

Shortly after catching word that his fight with Evans was off, Tim Kennedy took to Twitter where he called out four fighters to step up on short-notice.

Kennedy tweeted the following to four potential opponents:

“@SpiderAnderson was curious if you had any plans November 12? Want to meet me in New York at Madison Square Garden?”

“@nickdiaz209 UFC 205 might need your help. Not sure if you want to come to New York this weekend. I heard somebody needs an opponent…”

“@bisping I heard you were going to be in New York are at Madison Square Garden for UFC 205. Feel like trying to redeem a beatdown you got?”

“@JacareMMA I’m pretty sure I beat you the last time we fought. It was a split decision. A gift. Want to go again? #UFCNYC #ufc205”

Unfortunately for fight fans, the UFC just announced that Tim Kennedy will not participate at the historic event and added that no replacement bout will be organized.

The good news is that the promotion will be giving both men, Tim Kennedy and Rashad Evans, show money for their respective preparation efforts.

“Suga” spoke to about why he was forced to withdraw from the fight with Kennedy stating the following:

“I’m disappointed. I’m healthy. I don’t want anyone worrying about me. I’m fine, physically speaking. Never felt better. It’s just the commission and their rules. I guess they have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to this.”

“Man, I had something special for Tim,” he said.

“This doesn’t change the fact that I want to fight. This doesn’t change anything for me as far as fighting.”

“In life, if it ain’t one thing it’s another,” he said. “I won’t get beat down by this.”

Evans elaborated on the situation, stating that back in October he took a pre-fight MRI, which revealed “irregular findings” resulting in him needing to undergo further testing. The former champ reportedly passed the the tests, however was informed this week that he would not be granted a license to fight in the state of New York.
