    My ideal fight would Alvarez v. Maynard in a number 1 contenders fight. Try to argue someone would deserve a shot over the winner of that fight. You can't.
    Absolutely.

    I think this is a done deal from the fact that Dana tweeted it publicly like that.

    I agree that Melvin has the power to put out pretty much anyone, and Eddie does have a tendency of taking a few too many shots for my liking

    But its thats the case then he isnt ready for the top dogs in the UFC lets be honest.

    That's the fight I kept seeing pop up on Twitter last night, but they're Blackzillian teammates I believe, which I think will probably halt any possible matchup between the two.
    Boo.

    Agreed. I actually think that Melvin is a harder matchup for Eddie than Miller is; just a bad stylistic matchup, especially when you add in his speed which is a huge part of Eddie's game too.

    Good to hear, if Dana wants you theres a good chance your going to the UFC, especially if your contract just ended.

    I've been a fan of his for a while but I would've liked to see this move awhile ago but something is better then nothing. Hopefully it allworks out and he comes over to some great matchups at 155, he has such an explosive style that the casual UFCfan should hop all over him.

    Sidenote: Im hoping on getting the Eddie Alvarez Tapout tshirt for Christmas this year from the wifey and Im super stoked lol.

    I think Guida is moving to 145.

    That's always my concern and why I like seeing guys start off lower in the rankings. Whether it's the media blitz, the "UFC jitters," or whatever, I hate seeing someone talented fall down the rankings in their first showing.
