For those unfamiliar with Eddie Alvarez (flex buff chest looking in your direction for some reason)
He basically put Bellator on the map and early in his career gained notoriety for going to japan and beating some of their top guys.
he boasts a 24-3 record and recently avenged his 2nd loss, by TKO of Shinya Aoki in the 1st round. He only has 1 other loss at Lightweight, to Micheal Chandler, the current Bellator champion. His first career loss was at Welterweight he started out fighting at the higher weight class and was 10-0 before losing the bodog fights Welterweight title to Nick thompson. I think it was when bodog closed that he went down to his current weight to fight.
To be honest I'm not terrible familiar with this fighter. Though I was aware that his contract was soon up and that Dana White was going to try to sign him.
At the end of the day it comes down to $$$. He's going to the UFC, no question.
