Alvarez UD:

Quote:
Round 1
The "Eddie, Eddie!" chants take all of 10 seconds to begin at the Mohegan Sun, as Alvarez pops Curran with a lead right cross. Alvarez is feinting from the crouch, lunging into right crosses against Curran, who has yet to open up. Curran glances with his jab, and Alvarez misses a swiping pair of hooks intended for the body of Curran. Alvarez ducks under a Curran jab, locks up a single, and trips his plant foot out. Curran ends up on his knees, and Alvarez dives on him, but Curran gets to his feet before Alvarez can take his back. Alvarez changes levels for a takedown, and Curran connects with a knee. Four-punch combination for Alvarez lands on the arms of Curran. Alvarez continues to jump in with flailing rights that miss their mark. The Bellator champion pushes Curran into the fence, but can't find a takedown. Alvarez sticks two hard hooks into Curran's body. A Curran right hook slips in at the bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Jack Encarnacao scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Alvarez

Round 2
Alvarez dances in and out looking for power shots on Curran, who keeps his guard high. The champ shoots, but Curran sprawls nicely and pushes him away. Alvarez lands a left hook to the body, and measures Curran with his jab before unloading a wild uppercut that whizzes by his foe's face. Alvarez pushes Curran into the fence to little effect, as Curran pummels nicely to defend the takedown. Curran escapes, but Alvarez quickly jabs his way back into the clinch, driving Curran's back into the cage. A body kick lands for Curran, and Alvarez thuds with two hard hooks to Curran's body. A low kick for Alvarez scores, and he follows with another thump-thump to Curran's bread basket. Alvarez shoots for a double, but Curran again shuts it down, prompting another clinch along the fence which lasts until the bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Jack Encarnacao scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Alvarez

Round 3
Alvarez more active to start the third, pumping his hands quickly. He looks for a double, which again, Curran stuffs. Curran hasn't landed much, but he has stunted Alvarez's offense. The champ wades in, and lands another two-piece to the body, which has been his best offense through the first two rounds. A Curran jab catches Alvarez on the way in. An uppercut from Alvarez goes wide as he switches to southpaw, then back to orthodox quickly. An Alvarez right hook is blocked, but he lands a stiff left uppercut on the follow. A double jab and a right hook from the Pennsylvanian are blocked. Alvarez shoots, and Curran sprawls expertly once again, as the fight ends up along the cage once more. On the break, Alvarez digs to the body, but Curran blocks it. However, moments later, Alvarez returns to the body attack and scores. Two inside thigh kicks land for the champion, and Curran responds with a kick to the body. Two more digging hooks to the both for Alvarez. Alvarez sees Curran retreat, and smacks him to the guts twice more, before finishing his first takedown of the fight. However, Curran quickly scrambles back to his feet along the fence. The pair separate, and Alvarez thuds in three more pairs of hooks to the body -- five landing clean -- on Curran's torso.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Jack Encarnacao scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Alvarez

Round 4
A Curran attack is countered with a left hook to the body and a right hook to the head from Alvarez, who pushes Curran right back into the fence. Curran throws a chopping elbow to get off the cage, but Alvarez ducks under it. Alvarez smoothly ducks under four jabs from Curran, before rolling side-to-side with four hooks to the body. A short lead uppercut from Alvarez finds only Curran's gloves. Blood is now flowing from both of Pat Curran's nostrils. Alvarez turns his foe 90 degrees with a hard outside leg kick. Curran tries for a high kick, but is blocked. Curran lands a pair of clean jabs that prompt Alvarez to come forward with four punches, but he can't land cleanly. An uppercut is followed by a triple jab for Alvarez, and the champ changes levels, notching a takedown at the bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Jack Encarnacao scores the round 10-9 Alvarez
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Alvarez

Round 5
Alvarez's frenetic lateral movement appears again, as he changes levels and finishes a double on Curran. Curran quickly turns his back and scoots back to his feet, thwarting Alvarez's re-shot. A jab and two hooks to the -- guess where? -- body land for Alvarez again. Another pair of rib-roasters land for Alvarez. Restless for action, the Mohegan Sun crowd boos. A hard left hook lands for Alvarez, but his three-punch salvo to follow is blocked. Alvarez crouches, and explodes with a flying knee that lands on Curran. He flurries to follow, but Curran covers up. A teep from Curran just grazes the champ. A wild right uppercut from Alvarez snaps Curran's head back. Curran's has started to show the toll of five rounds with Alvarez. The champ fake a flying knee, and ducks under for a takedown, but Curran reverses and takes top position with 20 seconds to fight. Both men flail away, and Alvarez scampers back to his feet at the bell.

Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 Alvarez (50-45 Alvarez)
Jack Encarnacao scores the round 10-9 Alvarez (50-45 Alvarez)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Alvarez (50-45 Alvarez)
