Dana White to Eddie Alvarez - 'Lets talk'

Quote:
Tonight at Bellator 76, top Lightweight Eddie Alvarez picked up a career changing TKO win. Going into the bout it was widely known that the fight would be the last on Eddie's BFC contract. He had lost his Bellator title to Michael Chandler last fall, but picked up a victory over Japanese submission star Shinya Aoki in the meantime. It was also no secret that he was being courted by the UFC. Alvarez had appeared on camera at a UFC event this spring next to Dana White.

And obviously Dana White was watching him win tonight. Shortly after the one round fight, Dana took to Twitter:

@Ealvarezfight congrats Bro!!! Let's talk

Through his time as Bellator champion, Alvarez has been ranked as high as a top 5 Lightweight. Now we'll finally see if that high ranking was warranted.

The bout started off with a very high pace. Eddie rocked his opponent Patricky Freire early and did his best to get the quick finish. He opened up too much and the Pitbull was able to tag him back. Rocked, Alvarez clinched up to recover and the pace slowed. Then with less than 5 seconds on the clock, he landed a devastating head kick and got the stoppage with some ground and pound.
Been an Alvarez fan for years and have always rated him as a top three LW fighter. I think he would KO Frankie Edgar and Bendo personally.

Gif from his fight last night:

He was hilarious in Bully Beatdown. Boy did he give that bully the worst ass beating out of all the MMA fighters on there.

He's got a pretty hot wife! He's a contender if he gets the right matches. Him vs Diaz and Pettis would be sick. But I think he may get the likes of Miller or maybe even Maynard.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I think he could lose to the likes of Diaz and possibly Pettis, but the wrestle-boxers like Maynard, Edgar, Bendo etc he'd comfortably beat.

I just love his fighting style and killer instinct. Don't think there's ever been a boring Eddie Alvarez fight.

It was hilarious when he legkicked that dude to death on Bully Beatdown indeed

And when his leg gave out and he fell to the floor he kicked him squared in the chest, it was awesome. Not a single punch thrown



Really hope this guy ends up in the UFC, he is a very well rounded fighter. And exciting to boot!

Has Alvarez ever made 145?

He walks around at 170-180 so it would be a hard cut - but it has been done before.

Don't think he's ever fought at 145

Funny enough, against my own wisdom to wait until they have a couple of UFC fights, I actually think he is fairly legit. I still won't be happy if they give him a title shot right away, but he clearly deserves a top 10 opponent.
