Eddie Alvarez, 32, (28-4) is coming of an impressive performance where he defeated Rafael dos Anjos for the UFC crown. Before that, Alvarez defeated Gilbert Melendez and for 155lb king, Anthony Pettis. Alvarez lost a close unanimous decision to Donald Cerrone at UFC 178 in 2014 to enter the UFC from Bellator.
