Eddie Alvarez 'Waiting for a Fight'

Lightweight rising superstar Eddie Alvarez took some time to talk with PDG about the fall of EliteXC, his DREAM Lightweight Grand Prix experience, training and what the future holds for his mixed martial arts career.




PDG: Your scheduled fight against Nick Diaz was canceled when EliteXC went bankrupt last month; what were your thoughts when you got the news?
Alvarez: It was very unfortunate as I was about five weeks into my training for the fight. I was really looking forward to that fight and the whole situation just basically sucked. It was very important for me to win a title in America on national television. Shit happens and it wasn't the first time in my career. There was a similar situation when I was fighting for Bodog. I'm looking forward to moving on and signing with another American company that has a television presence.

The UFC has a nice lw division but Dream's lw is so stacked its unreal. I just wached highlights on HDnet of the lwgp and that was just unreal. I would love to see BJ fighting the likes of Alvarez, Aioki, Kawajiri, HansenEven Uno loked real good. That GP had some of the best fights of the year for sure.
