Triple H Shows Conor McGregor Some Love on Twitter

Tom Taylor - November 14, 2016

On Saturday night, the UFC touched down in glimmering New York City for the very first time. They did so with UFC 205, a stacked card headlined by a lightweight title fight between divisional king Eddie Alvarez and featherweight champ Conor McGregor. The bout marked McGregor’s opportunity to become the first fighter in UFC history to wear two UFC titles simultaneously, and in the end, he accomplished this feat with apparent effortlessness. After dropping his foe three times in the first round, he polished him off with a lightning-quick, four-punch combo in the second. Alvarez hit the deck, and McGregor had earned his place in the history books. UFC 205 also reset the record for the highest selling pay-per-view in UFC history – surpassing UFC 202, another McGregor helmed card, to do so. The card also set the live gate record for Madison Square Garden, which is an incredible feat considering the massive boxing matches, concerts, hockey games and basketball games that have occurred inside the hallowed venue. Like the PPV sale record that UFC 205 set, this accomplishment can be attributed to the incredible drawing power of McGregor.
