I've been a champion way before title fights and this and that. I've always carried myself in that manner and I'll continue to do so

Love Alvarez calling himself the 'underground king.' Knew exactly what he meant. Not many of those guys and stories left these days in MMA.
Paulo Filho, who is 1-4-2 since 2011, will fight again. He'll headline Fatality Arena 7 against UFC veteran Amilcar Alves on Sept. 31.

@MikeChandlerMMA: I wish you nothing but the best @Ealvarezfight . It was an honor to lock horns with you twice. Go get it man.” Beautiful.
Yes. RT @BayStyles: @arielhelwani how about mcgregor/poirier is the peoples main event, and cerrone/alvarez is the peoples co main event
C'mon now. Mcgregor vs Poirier. Let's not lose our minds here. RT @AyyDeVante: @arielhelwani Whats the peoples main event for 178? lol
Yes. RT @IrishRule15: @arielhelwani so is cowboy vs EA a real co-main?

@Mavsinho: @arielhelwani what happened to Bobby Green?” He's fighting the dreaded TBA at TBD. Big one.
… So for now, this is where we're at. I think Alvarez talked to after the deal was announced.
FYI - I briefly spoke to EA after the UFC deal was announced. He was about to go into practice and wanted to gather his thoughts.
What the heck. Here's my entire conversation with Eddie Alvarez about his release from Bellator and the UFC --
@shaunalshatti: Eddie Alvarez signs with UFC, fights Donald Cerrone in UFC 178 co-main event
I mean, I literally got off the phone with the guy 20 mins ago. Don't think he was lying and he said he had no deal. That's wild stuff.
Needless to say, half of the interview is useless now. It was good though, I promise!
Just about done transcribing my into w/ Alvarez about his release & hopes to sign with UFC … & then they announce Cerrone vs. EA @ UFC 178.
Just talked to the free agent, @Ealvarezfight. Great quotes. Interview coming shortly to @MMAFighting.
@ScottCoker: Wish @Ealvarezfight success in all of his future efforts. Great competitor with a bright future & hope he kicks ass…” Class.
@SnacksGeller: @arielhelwani Who should Eddie's first UFC opponent be? I say Diego Sanchez in Mexico” Nate Diaz. Makes too much sense.
With Alvarez finally a free agent, I expect Bellator to book Brooks vs. Chandler 2 later this year.
