The UFC brass might be adding another talented fighter to the already talent rich 155 lbs division.  Eddie Alvarez got his long awaited revenge last Friday – April 20th via 1st round TKO over submission specialist Shinya Aioki.  Alvarez still has one fight remaining on his Bellator contract.  A tweet from Lorenzo Fertitta and a positive reaction from Dana White might put the UFC and Eddie Alvarez on the negotiation table soon.

“I think Eddie Alvarez is a great fighter,”  “You know us, man. We’re always looking to get the best fighters in the world in the UFC and he’s one of them.”
