    There are several amazing LW fights ahead which probably will shake up the division quite a bit. There are several threads already on actual and fantasy fights.

    That's great but...what's up with Alvarez? Haven't heard any update in quite a while. So I'd like to ask you, oh wise forumites, the following:

    1) Does anybody know what Eddie's contractual situation is?

    2) Assuming he remains in the UFC, what do you see happening? Does he touch gold ever again, who should he fights next, etc.

    Eddie embarrassed his division. He should go back to bellator

    He should just focus on money fights and forget the belt

    Eddie is done at this point. He probably still has some fun fights in him but he won’t be near the title again.

    Nothing is up with him, he's fought twice in the past 8 months and is still ranked no.4 he has every chance to get the gold again, not saying it will be easy though

    He’s still one of the best LW’s ever, I don’t give a Shit if he embarrassed himself against Dustin or not. His resume speaks for itself.

    I really (really x10) hope the UFC is not dumb enough to let him walk.

    He should go to pfl and try to win a mil and add to his belt collection.Hes not reclaiming the UFC belt at the point.
    I wish Chandler has signed with the UFC there's some interesting matches for him and he's always in a good scrap.

    My take on Eddie is this : He's officially on other side of career and ironically during his UFC run, the only fight he's truly looked awesome in was the RDA fight.His contract is up and gambled on his last fight by not trying to work new deal.
    For a former champ, he has no legs to stand on.......Bellator , a mercy salary extension of the same $$ or an actual $$ decrease.

    He was a big fish in a small pond, now he's in a big pond and he's still getting used to it. That would be my guess.
