Two PPV attempts in a row robbed of their main event sounds like the worst of luck. However, something shady is going on here. Last year, when Tito Ortiz pulled out, fans found out on October 25, exactly one week away from the PPV.
Fast forward to now. Once again, exactly one week before the PPV, we find out that Eddie Alvarez is out of his fight. As the old saying goes, once is a coincidence...twice is a pattern.
