It's about time. Hopefully he signs with the UFC within the next few days.

 

Edit from Mcmax3000: He has signed, and will fight Cerrone at UFC 178: http://www.ufc.com/n...rez-UFC-Fighter

To sign with the UFC. About damn time!

 

Who should he be matched up with in the UFC for his debut? He doesn't have an official contract with the UFC yet, but I'm sure it's coming.

Cerrone is fighting Bobby Green. I think Alvarez vs Michael Johnson would be a good first fight.

I didn't want to see his first fight against someone who would try to lay and pray him. Let him get comfortable but still have a tough fight. Out of the top 10 who aren't coming off of a loss and who don't already have fights lined up I think MJ makes the most sense.

All you just said was that you were the loser kid at school who didn't watch wrestling. Every kid watched wrestling. So that means you were the kid we were hitting Boston Crabs and Sharpshooters on.

 

Thanks can. I needed the practice.
