UFC 205 will be remembered mostly for what happened in the cage. Conor McGregor made history with a brilliant performance against Eddie Alvarez, winning the lightweight title with a second-round knockout before a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden. A ridiculous law signed in 1997 by then-Gov. George Pataki banning MMA in the state remained in effect until April, when Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill legalizing it.
