I think this would a pretty good matchup to BJ Penn. Alvarez has amazing standup and has been working on his submissions. Ever since his lost to Shinya Aoki by heel hook, he has has won his last 5 matches by submission. That's improvement. We all know how BJ Penn is the so called "greatest fighter of all time". But I think this time, Eddie Alvarez would give him a run for his money.

I think BJ would dominate Eddie everywhere the fight went. Just my opinion though!!

One of the guys that the UFC needs to sign badly IMO.....great fighter! I think he would definately give BJ a good challenge and even have a chance to win for sure. I don't see BJ as awesome as most do though.....he is too inconsistant and has started to rely on his boxing too much for my liking.

This proves, in MMA with the fans your only as good as your last fight. BJ had a lackluster performance so now Alvarez would give him a run? Had BJ came out and performed like he did against Diego ppl would be thinking about Penn fighting stiff comp. at Welterweight..

BJ is still the greatest lightweight ever and easily one of the greatest fighters in combat sports history.

This probably. Ask the people who thought Aoki would stand a chance.
