Eventually, this bout will be known as the battle of the most perfectly manicured eyebrows. With Pat Curran out of his Bellator lightweight title shot due to a shoulder injury, the organization has selected your favorite street justice provider, Roger Huerta, to bang against Eddie Alvarez in a three-round non-title fight on October 21st at Bellator 33.
While not quite the Gilbert Melendez dream fight Bjorn Rebney has been talking about, Huerta holds the honor of being the only MMA fighter to ever appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated, a magazine that has been banned from receiving UFC credentials ever since The Ultimate Fighter 4. The story is long, bizarre and at times confusing, but Dana White accused SI’s Josh Gross of divulging secrets to the ending of TUF 4 that allegedly cost the organization a loss of revenue. This occurred the same time when Dana White paid people to ‘leak’ video of TUF on message boards. Seriously. We even have the intercepted emails to prove it. It’s a fun and entertaining paper-trail if you feel like taking that voyage tonight, however we all should get back to what matters most: Eddie Alvarez’s hair.
Eddie placed number one on our list of The Top Ten Fades in MMA. If he somehow made it into the X-Men, Eddie Alvarez’s fade would undoubtedly be his mutant power. The fade is so strong with Eddie that it even shows in his eyebrows. That’s a talent most of you will go through your entire lives without experiencing. It’s cool. Chances are you’ve never been knocked out in the middle of the street in Austin, TX by a guy that weighs 155lbs either. [Source]
