If Eddie Alvarez is successful in his next fight on Nov. 19 against Mike Chandler at Bellator 58, then he will draw Dream lightweight champion Shinya Aoki in the Bellator cage in the first part of 2012.

“Eddie and I have been talking about that fight now for the last two years. Ever since Eddie got submitted over in Japan, Ed’s been calling me saying ‘how can we make it?’ Now we’ve finally got it done,” Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney revealed when speaking to MMAWeekly Radio.

Aoki confirmed that he’s also in for the bout when he spoke to MMAWeekly.com last month, and he was looking forward to a second bout with Alvarez as well.

“Yes, I will fight him next year,” Aoki confirmed about the Alvarez fight. “I am looking forward to it.”

easy win for aoki. since getting owned by aoki, eddie has gone on taking and winning easy fights; he'll be exposed once again when he fights a top 10 LW.

Whether it is a title fight or not, I hope they do 5 rounds. I'm over seeing Bellator champs fighting in 3 round non-title fights.

Alvarez will destory him. Aoki is the most overrated LW today and is barely top ten.

He has rudimentary striking and decent wrestling. He would lose against most top competition.

Edgar, Melendez, Miller, Cerrone, Henderson, Maynard, Diaz, Lauzon, Guillard, Pettis would all DEStroy Aoki.

Given Bellator's history and how they match make I see no way that this is anything but a 3-round non-title fight. Phone Post

That's true, and I doubt it'd be a title fight. I'm just hoping they take a cue from the UFC and make high caliber headline fights 5 rounds. I'm sure everyone involved would prefer a decisive outcome one way or another.

Also, for all of you saying Alvarez will destroy Aoki, what the fuck is wrong with you people. You have to be the dumbest mother fuckers on the planet...or just ill informed. They already fought. Aoki destroyed Alvarez.

Kind of curious how this plays out in the cage. Props to Aoki even speaking about taking this rematch, I thought he was UFC-bound and would disregard it.

Wouldn't be too shocked though if Michael chandler spoils the party though.

Way to overlook Chandler, like that fight is already a win for Eddie.

I hope Chandler beats him now.

anyway Aoki should be in the UFC, if they do fight its a solid fight, good fight and really the only big fight for Eddie outside the UFC.

They should fight each other, they have nobody else to fight.

Both should be in the UFC.

You mean the fight 3 years ago? Yeah, Alvarez has improved monumentally and plus this fights in the cage.

Aoki has decent takedowns based from the clinch and has shitty striking. Alvarez will either knock him out or box the shit out of him.

eddie has padded his record since then while aoki has stepped up and fought better competition than alvarez. it's easy to look like a world beater when you sign with an organization that has no top 10 LW's, eddie will get exposed again.

Aoki is, perhaps, the king of padded records of the lightweight division.

How many top ten fighters has he beaten? Kawajiri? LOL, Hansen? LOL.

Until he beats a top ten lightweight and stops fighting absolute cans like MCcULLOIGH and Clementi, Aoki will be nothing more than an overrated lightweight with nothing to offer other than submissions.

Aoki has not beaten a top ten fighter, those who say otherwise are completely delusional.

You are kidding right? First off, Alvarez is considered top 10. On top of that he moved up in weight and lost to a great fighter in Mach Sakurai. He also fought and lost to possibly the number 1 lightweight in the world Gilbert Melendez. If that equals a padded record to you, you are probably chewing on plaster while watching matches.

Also, just cause you "LOL" like a douchebag and don't explain why, it doesn't discredit Hansen or Kawajiri. Those 2 are still 2 of Eddie's top 3 wins. By discrediting them, you are discrediting Alvarez. However considering the dominant performance over Josh Thomson, it is really fucking hard to discredit Kawajiri. You should add Lyle Beerbohm to that list to "LOL" about. He'd give most top fighters trouble, but he looked like a child against Aoki.
