UFC is targeting Justin Gaethje vs. Eddie Alvarez later this year, sources say. There has also been serious talk of them coaching TUF 26.

I thought Eddie was going to get a rematch with Dustin.

 

Also, I was getting excited with the idea of Tony vs Gaethje

So Eddie gets the big fight even though he was about to get finished by Dustin before he resulted to spamming illegal knees?

Lol.. he made MJ quit. If you want to say he got KO'ed six times in the process, that really just makes it more impressive.

I don't have a problem with Eddie v Gaethje.  It's not hard to argue that it's a deserved step up in competition for Justin and it represents both a different test for him, and a good bounce back fight for Alvarez.

 

I do have a big problem with them having them on TUF26 though.  There was a time when coaching on TUF was a great way to build a fighter's momentum; now it just slows it all down.  People were buzzing about Gaethje's UFC debut so why not capitalise and get him a match sooner rather than later.

The UFC never makes decisions that make sense. lol

I think what happened here is that Baldie never heard a place chanting a name so loud, and they want to try to turn that popularity into ratings on their awful television show.

As far as the two match up, Eddie will wilt just like MJ. People haven't seen it because Gaethje only wrestles defensively to keep the fight standing, but he's a much better wrestler than Alvarez. Gaethje will murder him.

That second paragraph is what really bugs me about the whole thing.  TUF should be used to boost a fighter's profile, not the other way round!  It probably has the opposite effect now if anything.

 

Yeah, i don't rate Eddie's wrestling that highly.  It's more smothering than explosive, and from what I've seen, Gaethje's got significantly better stand up.  Eddie's best days are sadly behind him i fear.  Don't think he trusts his chin any more.

I'd rather not see Barboza fighting Gaethje, that is coming from the #1 Barboza fan on the forums. Poirier is also going down in 2.

TUF coaches rarely end up actually fighting, not to mention the fact that we have to wait for filming and airing before the fight would even be booked.

According to Ariel, they have asked Bisping and Whittaker, Kevin Lee and now Gaethje and Eddie

 

I still dont get why TUF continues to use relevant names. Why not use this as a platform for guys that are holding out for fights like Rockhold and Anderson

They bring coaches to coach while they put on a show for TV.

Gaethje is an ncaa all American though so he could coach wrestling.
