UFC commentator Joe Rogan has suggested that Conor McGregor's next fight will be in a couple of months at Madison Square Gardens.

Hinting that he is in the know about the next move for McGregor after his victory over Nate Diaz at UFC202, it appears that UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez could be the opponent at UFC205.

"I know a little something that I wish I could tell, it's a interesting fight, man. If it happens, allegedly at Madison Square Garden...allegedly in a couple of months... But if it does happen, Eddie's a big boy. He can grapple. He’s a f****** grinder and whatever endurance issues Conor may have, he better iron those f****** out before you go to town with that guy," said Rogan on his podcast.

UFC205 takes place at Madison Square Gardens on November 12th which would fit with the timeline Rogan is hinting at.
