POLL: Will Eddie Alvarez Become A UFC Champion?


News broke earlier this week that Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez had signed with the UFC after receiving his unconditional release from Bellator head Scott Coker.

The news came out of the blue and excited fans to say the least. “The Silent Assassin” is now scheduled to meet Donald Cerrone in the co-main event of UFC 178 where he will look to certify himself as one of the best lightweight fighters in the world.

If he’s victorious against “Cowboy” he will shoot himself right into title contention, a dominant win might even put him next in line for a shot at the winner of Anthony Pettis and Gilbert Melendez who are set to battle it out for the lightweight title at the end of the year.

With that in mind, do you think Alvarez can win the UFC lightweight strap?

Cast your votes and check out the results below:

  • shoulda went with ben askren. Take ez route and make that moneyyy

    • Def not a LW, Eddie has this thing were he gets dropped every fight, and that is by the lesser talented Bellator talent. I dont see him being able to be Showtime in any phase of the game, his best shot would be his boxing obv, but Pettis is a better striker, and a threat off of his back.

  • maybe on featherweight…

  • If there were no Benson and Pettis, maybe.

  • I think we are gonna see Eddie drop down a weight class really soon lol

  • While he's great – there's great and then there's UFC great. A higher level of competition. I think he will take Cerrone though.
