After an exchange on Twitter, featherweight champion Conor McGregor (11-2) and Jim Alers (9-1) will close out the year when they meet at Cage Warriors 51 on December 31.
The two were supposed to fight in September, but a facial injury caused McGregor to pull out of the bout.
McGregor is on a seven fight win streak, with six of them coming via knockout. He last won in June of this year. Alers rides a five fight win streak, with all of them ending by the second round. He last competed earlier in the month.
