Alvarez vs. Neer

 Great fight last night!  Eddie Alvarez and Neer were both impressive.



Alvarez is a beast and should be considered a top 5 LW.  IMO he is top 3.







i told all the haters my boy eddie was gonna wreck it. eddie is definitely top 3.



congrats to eddie alvarez for making a game josh neer look like light work.



 

"Alvarez is a beast and should be considered a top 5 LW. IMO he is top 3."

Which of Edgar, BJ, and Melendez is he above?

I'd put Alvarez above Melendez.

He handled Neer like he was a rookie.

With the recent losses to BJ(even though i disagreed with judges) and Aoki, Alvarez should be considered top 3.

 That was an awesome card. Sucks that it didn't come on til 1030 for me though. I ended up falling asleep on the couch during the main event and now work today is gonna suck.

Agreed it was a great card.  I was really impressed with Imada's chain of subs he used to end his fight.



FSN is doing Bellator no favors.  They need to get them a gauranteed time slot or something.  I've got like 10 FSN's and the only one that was showing it, started a couple minutes late because the programming b4 it was blacked out due to some MLB regional coverage issue. 

Fugazi - I'd put Alvarez above Melendez.

Gil just completely dominated Aoki.

Aoki tapped Eddie.

Eddie finished Neer who is ok but also never finished in the UFC.

All this means is that Aoki sucks even more than we thought.

OK, maybe Melendez over Alvarez but both still top 3.

he's not top 3.
somewhere top 10.

I have BJ, Melendez and Edgar top 3, Aoki 4 and Alvarez 5.

Alvarez grappling has improved in leaps and bounds recently, he completely dominated Neer on the floor worse than anyone ever has before.

Wasa-B - All this means is that Aoki sucks even more than we thought.




And there you have it. lol

 It's very close but I put him over Melendez, or possibly the two of them right about the same.  A fight between Gilbert and Eddie would be great -- and not out of the realm of possibility after Eddie's first Bellator title defense. 


Very impressive performance but it looked like Alverez avoided a couple of good sweeps by grabbing a hold of the fence.

^ looked like both guys were grabbing the fence

Doem -

Good job with the vid!

Alvarez has a great fence grip, IMO.
