I would put Alvarez somewhere around number 9 or 10 in the world at the moment.

Great addition to the UFC once Bellator's matching period is up. I would expect him to debut somewhere around March/April.

Alvarez vs Edgar was something I always wanted to see.
good new for Eddie, bet Budge is happy.
Agree it would be a great business decision in the wake of a bunch of bad ones to hire Alvarez. He's arguably the biggest name in bellator,

Aint that the way. Anderson VS Lyoto would be another awesome fight that will never happen because of friendship.

Dana will pick Eddie up at all costs. Taking one of the faces of Bellator away from them just before the Spike deal would be worth every penny IMO. I can't imagine a scenario where this didn't happen.



Dana didn't get Fedor... I know it's not the same situation (different company & all)... just sayin...

Bet he can't because Fedor's management, M-1 always wants the co-promotion thing, and the UFC will never give into that. I don't ever see Fedor leaving M-1, plus he's retired.

I think Alverez does as well as any WEC guys, could win the title but probably more middle of the pack decision fighter

When M-1 starts managing Eddie, I'll take that into consideration...until then, there is no comparison. Actually, no...when M-1 starts managing Eddie "and" Eddie puts blind faith into all of their decisions, then I'll take that into consideration.
