Dana White: Eddie Alvarez Fighting Nurmagomedov, Not McGregor

Well, if we are to believe UFC president Dana White, we will not be getting Eddie Alvarez-Conor McGregor at UFC 205.

When asked on Twitter late Tuesday night, White responded that Alvarez will be defending his lightweight title this November against top division challenger Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Alvarez called out McGregor to sign the contract on Tuesday with several social media posts, all of which were answered by Nurmagomedov. “The Eagle” even put a time-limit on on of his responses to Alvarez needing to sign the contract.
