Eddie Alvarez: Over or under?

Since Eddie Alvarez signed with the UFC and is now fighting Cerrone who's in the top 10 I thought I would ask everyone how close they think he is to a title shot.

Do you think Eddie will get a title shot in under 4 fights in the UFC or over? I'm going with under as I think at most he needs 2 more victories at LW after the Cerrone fight should he win like I expect.

If he beats Cerrone and then someone like Khabib or Bendo he will only need 2 fights.

under, will only take 2 wins max, they don't want him sitting idly by when I'm sure they are paying him at or near top of the pay scale @ 155 division.

2 wins max. But I see no problem with him getting a title shot with a win over Cerrone.

I agree with both posts so far and I think Alvarez vs Henderson should be the fight to make if they both win their next fights as well.

Over 4 fighters because Cerrone is going to finish him.

i don't think Eddie does too well against anybody after Cerrone.
Even Cerrone might be too much to handle for Eddie

Why do you think this? Are you one of those guys that thinks there aren't any good fighters outside the UFC? I believe the guys that came over from Strikeforce and WEC have winning records last time someone tallied it up. Great fighters make great organizations not the other way around.

this is the same Cerrone that folds up like a tent every time he faces a top fighter?
