    I wonder if Zuffa has any interest in him. Or they'll make him an offer just to drive up the price.

    He might as well re-sign with Bellator. No one else is going to want to pay him to be the most boring fighter on the planet.

    i could see dw driving up his price... since bellator is actually doing a ppv i think that gives bellator a advantage in alvarez's case

    I would just like to see what he would do against the top 2-3 in the UFC.

    After last night, I say he absolutely smothers guys like Condit and Kampmann and gives anyone he can grab ahold of fits.

    Meh. He's champion, he's not going anywhere. Hope they pay him well, but I doubt it.

    I always thought no one could out douche Josh Koscheck. I stand corrected.

    Didn't he call himself the greatest fighter in the world last night? I got a good laugh out of that.

    I enjoyed the hell out of his fight. It was beautiful wrestling dominance, and I loved it.

    I thought Koreshkov's clavicle was going to explode in the first round. That was ugly for a second.
