June 21st, 2009
MMANews.com can confirm that JZ Cavalcante will be returning to action in September to take on Eddie Alvarez in light weight action at DREAM 11 in Japan.
Cavalcante's management confirmed the bout with MMANews.com earlier today.
The bout will take place on September 23rd in Tokyo on a card that will also feature the semi finals of the DREAM Featherweight Grand Prix.
Cavalcante, 14-3-1, will look to get back to his winning ways after suffering two straight losses to Shinya Aoki and Tatsuya Kawajiri. Injuries have plague the stand out 155lber, he has only fought 3 time since New Years Eve in 2007.
Alvarez, holds an 18-2 record, and is hot off winning the Bellator Fight Championships Lightweight tournament this past weekend.
The two fighters have fought a who's who of top lightweights and both are typically ranked in the top ten lightweights in the world.
Man tough fight for JZ coming off the injuries and back to back losses to face Eddie. Alvarez is one the best young up coming fighters at LW and is only getting better. I'll take Eddie in this one.
