Eddie Alvarez (19-2)
- My biggest opponent is me.. I can't just win by decisions, I have to put guys away to make a statement
- I don't know why I'm not defending the title against Josh Neer
- Fight will take place end of May. Fighting in Philly would be a dream, but I don't think it will be possible
- The famous "Wrestling crucifix": "wasn't that funky? I looked at the crowd while I was in it and thought 'can anyone tell me what to do here?'"
- It's important for me to go after UFC guys
- I don't have to hate my opponent, we both are doing the same thing, fighting for money

Josh Neer (27-9-1)
- I don't like fighting guys that lay on me, and Eddie is a standup fighter
- Expecting a standup fight with Eddie Alvarez
- Bellator deal is for 3 fights
- I've worked on not chasing my opponent... my two losses in the UFC I was chasing my opponent and that's why they brought me down
- If I beat Eddie Alvarez, I am guaranteed a title shot

I def respect Neer. He's got skill, size, and heart. I hope he prepares himself well because if not, he's going to get stopped.

Timmy B - It's important to fight the guys who couldn't cut it in the UFC?

Now that is a winner mentality!!


Well, other then fighting guys who haven't made it yet what would you suggest? He fight people who are currently in the UFC?

IrishRomo - eddie is going to beat him up. this is an elite top 5 lw here.

 An elite top-5 lw that only wants to fight UFC flunky's.  He should be persuing Strikeforce and Gilbert Melendez (want's no part of it) or a rematch with Aoki (would get subbed again)...or a fight with anyone who is relevant in the rankings.  Nope.  He only wants to fight guys who were in the UFC and got cut for losing.

Josh is really good when he's on his game. I don't know if it's just because his opponents have been better lately, but he hasn't looked as vicious as I've come to expect from him. I hope he brings his best game to fight Eddie, because Eddie is no joke and if he fights like he has in his last couple of fights Eddie will make him look like a punk.

It is, actually. 

Other than Hus' suggestion that he fights people still in the UFC, which is impossible, that means he's fighting the best competition available.

Neer had respectable decision losses to many top UFC LW's, so it's a good measuring stick for a top-ranked LW outside of the UFC.

You do present an interesting new spin on disparaging non-UFC fighters though.  Well done.

 Except... Eddie is signed with BELLATOR, they fight for STRIKEFORCE.

That tiny little problem might get in the way.

Without some major finessing, he is unlikely to fight anyone who is currently signed with a competing promotion.

Sounds like you may need a little HATERADE!
