“I love Cowboy Cerrone. He’s one of my favorite fighters,” White said. “Eddie Alvarez has been waiting for this opportunity for years now, and he’s finally here. I think it’s going to be a very good fight. I would make Eddie the underdog because he’s had a tough run and he’s going in against Cerrone who is on an absolute roll right now. Cerrone seems mentally, emotionally and physical all there – it’s going to be a great fight. It’s going to answer a lot of questions.”
