PHILLY’S ALVAREZ, IRELAND’S MCGREGOR IN THE BATTLE OF NEW YORK!

By Michael Donovan

Philly’s Eddie Alvarez and Ireland’s Conor McGregor are ready to get it on on Nov. 12 in Madison Square Garden

McGregor is the biggest star in the UFC — mouthy, brash and tremendously talented — and he was in solid form at the Garden on last night at the official announcement of the card.

“The Irish, we built this town,” he said. “Now we’re coming back to claim what’s ours.”

When his opponent, Alvarez, made a rejoinder, McGregor replied: “You going to do something over there? I run New York, I run this whole city.” He also predicted a victory in one round, eliciting chants of “Conor, Conor” from the rowdy throng of fans admitted to the news conference.
