New UFC 205 promo will have you counting down the final 7 days

Conor McGregor’s bid for the lightweight title and UFC history is now just one week away.

MADISON SQUARE GARDEN is already sold out and the presence of Conor McGregor at the top of the bill guarantees that UFC 205 will be a hit on the pay-per-view market.

Nevertheless, the UFC are gradually ramping up the promotional efforts for their New York City debut, which will take place a week from today.

Conor McGregor will bid to take the lightweight title from defending champion Eddie Alvarez in the main event, and this latest video features all the essential ingredients of a good UFC promo, including soundbites from McGregor, uncontrollable shouting from Mike Goldberg and hyperbole from Joe Rogan.

There’s also an eyebrow-raising statement from UFC light-heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier:

Eddie has all the skill, all the ability, to go out there and not only beat Conor McGregor, but embarrass Conor McGregor.”

Seven days and counting. We can’t wait.
