Eddie Alvarez Wins Again. Captures Bellator LW Title



It looks like Eddie Alvarez is continuing to dominate the LW world of MMA with another impressive victory on Friday against the always dangerous Toby Imada.

This makes Eddie Alvarez victories out of 8 of his last 9 fights and puts his overall record at 18-2.

Along with this victory he was also crowned LW champion of Bellator Fighting Championships. With his contract up atm it is anyones guess if he'll stick around to defend it.

It looks like Eddie has just become the hottest free agent on the market.

I hope he either goes to Strikeforce or the UFC...if he's even going anywhere that is.

I think he'd destroy any LW roster that he goes to.

He was a lot of fun to watch on those Dream shows, I wouldn't mind if he went back on those but he could have some really exciting fights in the UFC plus meet some tough submission artists.

The better fights for Alvarez are outside of the UFC.

Competing in DREAM and defending his title in Bellator is a tough enough schedule. Rumours are "JZ" will be competing in the next Bellator LW tourney.

Penn, Sanchez and Florian are the only interesting fights in the UFC. The likes of Maynard, Sherk, Guida, Fisher and Edgar are unskilled hacks.

Bellator is starting to sound like the shit. From the exciting KO's to the unbelievable submissions to the new veterans they are signing.

I would love to see him come to the UFC. That would make some great fights. I am a fan of his even though how he shaves straight down between his eyebrows kind of creeps me out a bit...High Definition lets you see some amazing shit in interviews lol

Isn't that the truth...


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

These guys are allowed to flourish in a UFC LW division barely dripping with any talent. If Sanchez hadn't have moved down the division might have died a slow death after the Penn/Florian fight.

The likes of Maynard and Guida are anti-fighters.

Sherk is a reformed anti-fighter, now parading as an crap amatuer kick-boxer, if that.

Edgar has some talent, though would get eaten up in Japan.
