yeya, eddie alvarez is the man.
I'd acually like to see him go to the ufc because then he can get the recognition he deserves from north american fans, and he will deffinatley be a top contender, alot of good fights for him.
But i do have a feeling Affliction will offer him some absurd amount of money, maybe to fight horodecki, which isnt a bad fight.

I am pretty certain we will see him on the Strikeforce roster if for no other reason than to clear out his EliteXC contract responsibilities.

It has to be a mutual decision between the fighter and the org. Kimbo wasn't just allowed to leave, I beleive Coker was pretty much obliged to not cater to Kimbos desires financially and his status quo per card and fights slated for.

Now Eddie is a different story and I think Coker will work harder to have him under the banner. I'm pretty sure he'll fight for Strikeforce.

I dont think he needs to leave bellator. He should stay and defend that belt and have them build the organization around him.

That or go back to Japan. He doesnt have many interesting fights in the UFC (take BJ out and the division is really weak) or any other US organization at that. Doesnt really make sense to go back to Japan bc he did fight Hansen, Aoki, Kawajiri...That is why I say stay at Bellator. Thought he would probably make the most in Dream

I'd like to see him make some big money. I think he's earned it.
