Mixed martial arts fans are ready to watch UFC 205 live stream online coverage as Conor McGregor battles Eddie Alvarez on Saturday evening. The UFC Lightweight Title will be on the line as the latest fight card takes place from New York City. Also featured on the card will be Tyron Woodley, Miesha Tate, and women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. The latest UFC pay-per-view is certainly stacked with potential, with the betting odds possibly revealing who should emerge from the event victorious.
The odds for the main event matchup have moved to become quite close for the two competitors. As Las Vegas Sun reported earlier today, McGregor’s price moved from a -185 favorite to a -135 favorite. Alvarez was at +115 at the time of this report, showing just how close a fight it could be. Still, “The Notorious” is the favorite as he has been in many of his big fights, so fans are anticipating he’ll capture another championship for his resume.
With that said, only one champion on the card has been given the role of favorite for tonight’s pay-per-view. Women’s Strawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk is about a 4 to 1 favorite to defeat her opponent Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Tyron Woodley, who will be defending his championship for the first time, is actually the underdog. Woodley has +170 odds on the moneyline compared to Stephen Thompson who is listed as the -200 favorite to win.
Another fighter in action tonight will be former Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman. He’ll be a -180 favorite to defeat 39-year-old Yoel Romero who is a +150 underdog. The winner of this particular fight may be considered the front-runner to face Michael Bisping for the Middleweight title, which Weidman would love to regain. He’s only lost once in his 10 UFC career fights thus far, while Romero has put together an undefeated 7-0 in his fights for UFC.
Former Women’s Champion Miesha Tate is also featured for the latest main card. Tate finds herself as a -165 favorite against Raquel Pennington, a +140 underdog. Tate held the Women’s Bantamweight title for a bit, after shocking the MMA world with her win over Holly Holms, who shocked the MMA world by defeating Ronda Rousey. That brought about another shock as Amanda Nunes snapped Tate’s five fight winning streak to capture the title which she now holds.
Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez will take the spotlight, though. McGregor has been known for his bold ways of trash talking opponents during press conferences or weigh-ins and continuing to predict future wins. So far that only came back to hurt him against Nate Diaz, in their first bout, as McGregor captured a decision in their sequel fight. However, McGregor seems to be stirring up confrontations with more than just Eddie Alvarez for this latest event, as FOX Sports reported he got into it with Tyron Woodley backstage. That came after he nearly tossed a chair at Alvarez during their press conference Thursday during which Woodley recorded footage from the incident with his phone and posted on Twitter.
