After years of waiting he's finally in the UFC and set to face Donald Cerrone. But there's still tons of exciting match-ups for him afterwards. Win or lose, who do you want to see him face?

Personally, I want to see him face off against Gilbert Melendez. That has FOTY written all over it.

I'm so stoked! I'm just happy that it didn't happen too late either, as he's still 30 years old and has great potential. The Cerrone fight for me is perfect and definitely one of the one's I really wanted.
Love the Melendez fight too of he wins or loses to Pettis, especially if Alvarez beats Cerrone. Strikeforce champ vs Bellator champ who have proven themselves against top UFC guys. Would definitely be a war.
Nate Diaz, Anthony Pettis, and TJ Grant are all fights I think would make for must see TV too

I know the Cerrone fight is already signed..BUT

To prove he's 10 top: Bobby Green, Michael Johnson, Miles Jury

To prove he's a title contender: Rafael dos Anjos, Khabib, Cerrone, or Melendez

Too bad the cerrone fight is already booked. A fight like this would bring Nate back instantly, cash money yo!

You said it all. Melendez vs Alvarez for the belt should be his 2nd fight in the promotion.

Um, Alvarez has been considered a top ten LW for about the past 6 years.

You're right, to us real fans he's a top 10 guy, but when you jump to the promotion that's #1 in the world, to casual fans you must prove yourself, I'm not being jaded just being realistic
