Instant title shots don't really mean much. It means his 1st fight is going to be a title shot...well yeah that title shot might come after winner of Pettis-Cerrone and Melendez get theirs. Alvarez would either have to sit out to get his "instant" title shot or fight in the mean time to earn some money. Noway Alvarez is going to sit out anyway.
Thats what I understand by the term "instant title shot" anyway.
