Ladies and gentlemen, "The Notorious" Conor McGregor is clearly as real as it gets. People have shares in the company now, celebrities.
"I've spent a lot of time slaying everybody in the country", McGregor said.
"I'd like to take this chance to apologise to - absolutely nobody!" he said, fueling renewed cheers.
"They've (the UFC) got to come talk to me now, no one's talked to me since the sale".
UFC 205 might have been a long time coming, but it proved to be worth the wait, an entertaining and polished production that was sometimes bloody, often brutal, but thoroughly entertaining for those who enjoy combat sports.
"They gotta come talk to me now".
"They're not on my level", McGregor said.
One moment which perfectly summed up McGregor's utter superiority on the night came early in the second round as Alvarez, having been downed three times in the first round, backed up against the cage and the Dubliner chased him down with his hands behind his back. Whether there are more deserving lightweight challengers or not, this is the biggest fight UFC can make right now.
We thought he was taunting Eddie Alvarez.
UFC was live and legal in NY for the first time since an MMA ban was lifted earlier this year.
"Welcome to NY", boomed over the public address system as the pay-per-view card began with a potential of 1.6 million customers worldwide.
Perhaps it's his impending fatherhood that has McGregor thinking about a long-term plan for his future.
"I was literally losing my head in there", he said.
Some of the other stars of the maiden NY night were eager to thrust themselves forward as options for McGregor whenever he does choose to fight next.
"This kid, every time he says he's going to do something, he does it". But mere words aren't going to cut it for the two-weight champion anymore.
On Saturday night, Tyron Woodley's big punches won him the best round of his title defense against Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson and allowed him to retain his welterweight belt.
UFC had never run a show in New York City because of a two-decade ban imposed by New York that left only unsanctioned and unsafe MMA fights in the state.
But the NY stage belonged to McGregor.
McGregor said he was considering not fighting until his child was born, originally believing the due date was in March, until being told at his post-fight news conference that it's May. As owner, or something - an equity stake in the company. "I need to be set for life". UFC legend BJ Penn attempted the feat against George St Pierre at UFC 94 but the former Welterweight champion dominated the fight.
