why is Alavarez (UFC champ) fighting in lower-level show (Bellator)? I assume he signed deal before winning UFC title?
Eddie Alvarez has never been ufc champ.
Didn't Eddie Alvarez just defeat BJ for titel TWICE?? Am I mixing up fighters here?
That was Frankie Edgar. Eddie Alvarez fought in Japan and is the current Bellator champ at LW. He's beaten pretty good guys but has a key loss against Dream LW champ Shinya Aoki. Alvarez is fighting Roger Huerta in a non title bout later this month because Pat Curran is injured. Frankie Edgar will be fighting Gray Maynard who holds a win against the champ at UFC 125.
