In the headliner, two No. 1-ranked fighters and champions clash. Featherweight titleholder Conor McGregor (20-3 MMA, 8-1 UFC) looks to become the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two belts when he challenges for Eddie Alvarez’s (28-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) recently won lightweight belt.
In the co-main event, welterweight champ Tyron Woodley (16-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC) looks for his first title defense when he takes on No. 2-ranked Stephen Thompson (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC).
