Alvarez has really improved his ground game since his defeat to Aoki, winning 5 straight by submission.
Eh, Kawajiri looked like the better striker in the fight he just wasn't all that much better and let Alvarez turn it into a brawl which was stupid since Eddie has really good power in his hands. They both ****ed each other up, great fight, who knows what happens if they fight again. They are both top 10 LWs neither are top 5 right now though.

I thought the Neer win was the most impressive of his career as well. Neer is a really tough guy everywhere and subbing him is a big deal.
