Eddie Alvarez has yet to fight inside the UFC, however tomorrow night that will change when he steps into the Octagon against #5 ranked Donald Cerrone. Regardless of his lack of UFC experience, the former Bellator MMA champion feels that he he should be fighting the UFC champion, Anthony Pettis.

He spoke to MMAFighting:

“The best thing you can do in fighting is deceive and lie to your opponent and he is doing it already. He is lying to you guys (media) and he is already lying to me. He knows who I am. He’s seen me. His coaches know who I am – they’ve seen me and so has the rest of this division.”

“I feel like that. I feel like everybody is making a big deal out of this guy (Cerrone) and they’re building him up to be this superhero. I feel like putting him away would just put me on the map.

“Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta know what I can do and they know I should be fighting the champions of this promotion.”

What are your thoughts on Alvarez vs. Cerrone, and Alvarez’s relevancy to the lightweight title picture?
