Well, his boxing and his wrestling have always been his bread and butter. Eddie was a two-time All-American highschool wrestler, and Dida is known for his striking power. Why would Eddie not take advantage of a glaring weakness in Andre's game?
He's just too wild. You can have all the power in the world, but if you throw everything into your punches, chances are high you're leaving yourself open to being countered with a takedown.
I agree, he's fought some tough competition. But you seemed extremely confident in his ability to make Alvarez look foolish:
lol. There's nothing wrong with you having optimistic predictions for one of your favourite fighters. I just find it interesting that you were so convinced that he'd be more complete with his training at the Universidade, and your confidence in his improvements completely changed since he got smashed.
