“When they first told me [I was fighting] Cowboy, it was ironic because I was just in Atlantic City to see him fight against Jim Miller. Glad I got to see him fight live. I got to see holes in his game. You can tell a lot about a guy’s speed and work rate when you watch him live. I’m excited about it. He’s a guy on a roll. He’s dangerous right now, everybody’s got their eye on him. I fare the best when I’m in dangerous situations, against guys like that. The UFC couldn’t have made a better matchup for me.”
Eddie Alvarez has fought all around the world ahead of his co-main event clash with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 178: Johnson vs Cariaso this Saturday (September 27, 2014) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though he’s been going through contract disputes with Bellator over the past few years, there is no better opponent for him than the Cowboy if he wants to make immediate waves in the most talent-rich division in mixed martial arts. And not only can you catch Alvarez throwing down on pay-per-view, he will also be seen on Spike TV (click here for further details) for free.
