On November 11th, Madison Square Garden was filled with UFC fans from all over. The fight included big name fighters such as: Connor McGregor , Eddie Alvarez, Miesha Tate, Frankie Edgar, and Tyron Woodley. 10th grader Austin Bryant said, “My favorite fighter is McGregor because he is a winner, and I like his cocky style and attitude.” UFC 205 was the first fight hosted in New York’s Madison Square Garden because the state recently lifted the longtime professional MMA ban.

Within the main card, which are the main fights, there was no such thing as a bad fight, but everyone’s focus quickly turned towards Connor McGregor against Eddie Alvarez. Both are considered experts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. 10th grader Kory Moore said, “I enjoy all styles because it takes a certain amount of skill and mental toughness to excel at each type.” McGregor ended up knocking Alvarez out early in the second round making him the Lightweight champion.

Many students are still learning about the UFC as it is a growing sport. Students can get involved by learning karate and other martial arts for self-defense, but also to learn about other cultures.
