It's pretty obvious Eddie doesn't qualify for a title shot and the UFC knows it!
Between Eddie, Gilbert, and Pettis

Eddie Pitbull/Aoki/Curren
Melendez Thomson/Masvidal/Kawajiri
Pettis Cerrone(if it happens)/Lauzon/Stephens

While Alvarez may not be the best choice I do think his victories qualify him. Especially as both Pettis and Melendez are coming off injuries.
