Eddie Alvarez Eyes EliteXC Title

MMAWeekly - What's your status with EliteXC and what do you expect when you return?

EA - I'm signed with EliteXC and I'm also signed right now with Monte Cox's promotion (Adrenaline MMA). I have to see how this tournament plays out first and foremost, then I have to see when I come home what makes the most sense for me and my career then take it from there. I don't really want to take fights that don't make sense and don't build me up. I want to fight the best people out there. I'm young and want to get that experience with the better guys.

MMAWeekly -- How many fights do you have left on your current EliteXC contract?

EA - I believe I have two or three fights or something like that.

MMAWeekly - I ask because if you win this fight, this tournament, or even now actually, I can see EliteXC possibly making you a contender to the winner of Noons vs. Diaz II, if and when that happens. Would that be a fight of interest to you for the EliteXC lightweight title?

EA - Oh yea, of course. When I come home I don't want to fight a nobody or fight an up and comer, I want to fight the best. I'm not going to leave a tournament that has top fifteen lightweights in the world and come home and fight chumps or whatever. Both of them are top-level guys and I would love to fight whoever has the title at the time.

MMAWeekly - Would you have a preference of the two if you got to choose? Is one or the other a better style match up for you?

EA - Whoever wins the fight and is holding the belt at the time is who I'd rather face. I don't like to look at guys and say yea that's who I want to fight. I don't like to pick my opponents; it's not something I do. I just want to face whoever they consider the best so I can hold the top rank at whatever promotion I'm at.


Alvarez also speaks on Gilbert Melendez as well as other topics.

In my opinion he's a threat to Noons or Diaz, can't wait to see what happens.
