Somehow, we made it. Despite Friday morning's revelation of Donald Cerrone and Kelvin Gastelum having their fight scrapped because Gastelum missed weight, UFC 205's main card remains in tact.
It's something that we really couldn't have expected based on trends throughout the year. Over 30 main or co-main event fights were altered this year because of injury or otherwise. But now, we are set to have our first three-championship fight card ever in UFC, all in front of New York City.
Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez will headline the event, battling for the lightweight title -- chairs not included. Plus, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will make his first title defense against Stephen Thompson while strawweight queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk will make her fourth title defense against fellow Pole Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Here is how the full fight card breaks down with the most up-to-date odds from Bovada.
