Eddie Alvarez will defend his lightweight belt against Conor McGregor at UFC 205 in New York, November 12.

It’s no secret that Conor McGregor’s best weapon is his laser-accurate left hand, but Alvarez believes he could stop him.

“To me, he’s just a left hand,” Alvarez said on the MMA Roasted podcast. “He’s just a guy with a left hand. That’s how I see him. He does something that we call a ‘rock back’ well. Mayweather does it. A lot of Philly fighters do it. [McGregor] lives and breathes off it. A lot of MMA guys don’t know about these boxing things that they do. This is a move that’s very easily taken away and we’re going to dominate every step of the way.”

“Without giving away a gameplan or anything, everything’s taken away with the proper preparation. I’m confident in my coaches, I’m confident in our gameplan and our ability to go out there and do it. We’re just following this gameplan step-by-step.”
