His bad. See the thing is….Yeah, this guy screwed up. We argue all day why 12-6 elbows should be legal in MMA but its 2018 and Eddie Alvarez should know the rules.
Oh, and so should Alvarez’s coaches. Since we can time warp Alvarez and Dustin Poirier back to Japan 2005 and have them fight under Pride rules, they have to follow the 2018 MMA norms.
Let’s watch the corner of Eddie Alavrez specifically tell him to throw illegale 12-6 elbows. Oops.
Alvarez listened, lost his dominate position in the fight and the rest is Poirier history.
