Eddie Alvarez “UFC’s Most Violent Man” Wants Lucrative Fight After UFC 218 Win

The former lightweight champ, Eddie Alvarez, who stopped the Justin Gaethje with a vicious knee in the 3rd round to seal the stardom at UFC 218 on December 2.

Alvarez said he is one fight left on his contract, following the remarkable “Fight of the Night” showdown with Gaethje at UFC 218 which took place at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. After scoring a victory over Gaethje, Alvarez looking forward to getting a mega-fight deal with UFC.

“I actually have one fight left with the UFC,” Alvarez said. “I’ve finished all my fights, and I have one fight left on my contract. It’s time to sit down with the boss man and talk about long-term, talk about how we’re going to do this thing and what big, mega-fight we can have coming up.”

Eddie didn’t mention the name of any potential opponent who he will face next, which will surely disappoint Dustin Poirier, who thinks (Dustin) it’s a perfect time to book a rematch between lightweight standouts. It didn’t take long for Poirier to call out ‘The Underground King’ on Twitter.

Alvarez, the former UFC lightweight champion declared himself ‘the most violent’ man in the UFC after his bloody war with Justin Gaethje at UFC 218.

“I’m the most violent man in the UFC,” Alvarez said on Philadelphia’s 93.3 WMMR (transcript via MMAjunkie). “They can take the No. 1, 2 and 3 (ranking). I’ll just take that title, and I’ll keep it. I’ve been crowned.”
“We went in to make a point. My performances in the UFC, I’ve been trying to win. Win, win, win. I’ve been so focused on winning that the performance itself wasn’t showing my true colors. We went in here with just the idea of, ‘Just be as violent as we can.’ The byproduct of that would be a win.”
