Alvarez is training hard for the fight Saturday night. 

Here's what he has to say:

"I think I'm going to land that big shot," he said on the New York Knicks basketball court at Madison Square Garden. "I think this guy's worried about a lot of grappling and a lot of wrestling. I think where it's going to end up, when his mind's on that I'm going to land that big shot and then I'm going to submit him."

Conor is ready to take a second title though.

Here's what he has to say:

"He's claiming it's an easier contest. I look forward to when the eyes shift, when the eyes roll, and the electric shock goes through his whole body and he goes to his knees and then he comes up and he's in survival mode and that panic sets through his whole body, his whole face, that's something that I look forward to. I will punish him for that, for those words that he's saying. I'm going to retire him on this night," McGregor said.
