this makes 0 sense, he's essentially getting a title shot after losing to chandler and what winning 1 or 2 moe wmatches after that over okay competition over guys like pettis/cerrone winner, melendez, maynard and other contenders in the 155 shark tank

OWNS is spot on. Alvarez is a good fighter but come on, an instant title shot? Hector didn't even get an instant title shot and he never lost his Bellator belt....

The hype revolves around Alvarez being an absolute demon inside the cage. He has the striking and aggression to KO the top notch strikers of the division (Patricky Freire for example) and the grappling and scrambling ability to neutralise any wrestler that wants to look and take the lay and pray route.

He has huge knock out power, probably the most current devastating KO artist in any LW division and is an over all excellent grappler.

I for one can't wait to see Eddie prove his worth in the UFC and start KO'ing fools left and right.

Except for the fact that he gets dropped in almost every fight. Therefore showing at least not great defense. I agree that he's a great and exciting fighter but I really don't agree with him getting a title shot off the rip. I'd still love to see him fight in the UFC though, because he'd further stack an already stacked division.

He gets dropped almost every fight because he has the Nick Diaz, throw absolutely no caution to the wind mentality. In your face, throwing down until some one gets KO'd. There aren't many people at the top of the heap of the UFC LW division who have the power to really trouble or KO Eddie any ways. Bendo has no notable KO power, Nate Diaz doesn't pack a heavy punch, Maynard couldn't KO Bobb Sapp with a free shot...

Does he deserve the immediate title shot given his current recent resume? Not really, but by now people have to realise that in the UFC, deserves' simply got nothing to do with it.

I personally think Alvarez and Chandler are the two best LW's in the entire world right now and think we'll see a great trilogy from the two down the line.

Although I don't completely agree with everything you said, Grapple, I don't discount a lot of it either. He is a very aggressive in your face fighter. He never has a boring fight. I can see him getting dropped and finished by all but Diaz. And even though he wouldn't fight him, I could see Frankie stomping the crap out of him. Most of that is why I want to see him in the UFC though, so he can prove my assumptions wrong!

Personally I see Eddie as a Frankie Edgar 2.0. All of the technical prowess Edgar possesses, but with never ending aggression, KO power and killer instinct. I think he'd eat Frankie alive in the octagon.

Instant title shots don't really mean much. It means his 1st fight is going to be a title shot...well yeah that title shot might come after winner of Pettis-Cerrone and Melendez get theirs. Alvarez would either have to sit out to get his "instant" title shot or fight in the mean time to earn some money. Noway Alvarez is going to sit out anyway.

Thats what I understand by the term "instant title shot" anyway.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

The reason I said it was because they are the non-aggression type training partners, that said they won't fight each other ever because they train with each other so much.

Yea, it's highly doubtful they'd ever actually fight each other, which is a shame - fun fight for sure. Them training and sparring together so much is quite bizarre when you think about it, they both have such different mindsets and different approaches to the game, you'd think they'd be similar in certain regards.
