This would be a great fight if they can actually get it done, but the Eddie Alverez saga has been going on for so long I dont want to get my hopes up.

 

And Cowboy FTW.

Think about it dude. Scott Coker is in charge. I know I know, Viacom. BUT, imagine if Alverez wins, It raises a ton of Bellators stock.

Putting Coker in charge was a masterstroke on Bellators behalf, Bjorn can go eat a fat ****. Like I said if they can make this happen it would be a great fight, but Im still pretty skeptical that the negotiations will work.

 

Heres hoping this comes through

I just saw this too, must be the epic co main Dana mentioned and holy **** this could be fight of the decade! Huge fan of both but I gotta pick Cerrone simply for the fact its Eddie's first UFC fight and it generally takes one loss before GOATS from other organisations to start kicking ****

I despise the UFC for spreading the cards so thin and having events so often. THe hype and anticipation for some of these fights could be unbelievable. Instead we have sub par events creeping up on me 6 times a month to the point i don't even know who's fighting when anymore. Instead we have a system where its damn near impossible to create big stars of the sport. They just don't give enough time to stop and get invested in these fighters.

If im watching the NFL i don't want to see CFL level teams along side them. I want the premier of football and i won't get that with the CFL. Yet the UFC has decided to do the equivalent of this.

Love this match-up. Especially if it becomes a formal no. 1 contender match with winner v Pettis/Melendez winner and loser v Pettis/Melendez loser.  4 guaranteed awesome fights right there.

 

Haven't seen much of Alvarez tbh, although he looked good on Bully Beatdown  :huh:

@arielhelwani on Twitter:

 

 

I'm told, as of last night, Alvarez is still contacted to Bellator. There is, however, a push in the company to cut ties with him now.

Alvarez only has one fight left on his deal, so if he wins that fight he can walk away with the belt. Not ideal. …

So if the new regime parts ways now after over a year of drama, it sends the msg that they are fighter friendly and not like the old regime.

No one in the UFC will comment on it on or off the record because he's still under contract and that's a no-no. However …

Coker has been here before. He washed his hands of Shields when he was SF champ. The plan at 1 time was to do same. Get ahead of the game.
