Eddie Alvarez: “I Will Not Fail” Vs. Rafael Dos Anjos For UFC Title

Eddie Alvarez was one regarded as the top lightweight in the world when he was dominating foes in Bellator MMA.

Next month at UFC Fight Night 90, Alvarez will have the chance to secure his standing once more, as he meets Rafael dos Anjos for the title.

Since coming over to the UFC, Alvarez (27-4) has scored back-to-back decision victories vs. Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez. In 2014, he lost his Octagon debut to Donald Cerrone.

Dos Anjos (25-7) is on a five-fight win streak that includes a finish over Cerrone and wins vs. Pettis, Nate Diaz and Benson Henderson.

“I don’t know if there’s going to be a single person or anything that’s going to be able to get in my way come that date,” said Alvarez, during an appearance on The MMA Hour. “Not a chance. I will not fail. I’m going to win this world title. I’ve told a lot of people this for a long time. I made a lot of promises. So, he’s good.

“I’m not taking a single thing away from him, the guy is good at what he does, but that night, there’s not much he’s going to be able to do (to stop) me from winning that world title. Not a single thing.”

UFC Fight Night 90 kicks off a three-event stretch for the UFC around International Fight Week in Las Vegas. The entire card airs live on UFC Fight Pass.
