    the biggest waste of money the ufc has ever spent. He got a HUGE contract and I think Eddie can't handle the pressure.

    Good thing tattoos are not easily seen when you're that athletic and explosive. Those are terrible.

    You think someone with so much money would invest in some decent tatts.

    The conspiracy theorist in me thinks the UFC is throwing him to the Wolves and hopes he loses 3 in a row. They paid a lot of $$$ for Alvarez. If they can cut him after 3, they can resign him at a drastically reduced rate.

    He has the flu dude. If you have ever had a strain that keeps you laid up for a week, then you would understand. He didnt do it on purpose. He doesnt get paid now.

    Alvarez got a 250k signing bonus, ppv points for his first fight and 70k/70k.

    Turning into a bad deal for the ufc.

    That was at a time when Penn and Couture could have pulled similar numbers regardless of opponent. For the amount they paid him, Toney was a bust.

    Not at all. The guy has been doing this for a long time, and he always puts on great fights. Will you tune in to his next fight?

    Where do you get this ridiculous judgement from? If you watched any of his fights you'd know Eddie actually responds tremendously to pressure.
