As if the UFC's lightweight division weren't already stacked to the point where Frankie Edgar and Clay Guida had to bolt for greener pastures, now here comes Eddie Alvarez. Or at least, potentially here comes Eddie Alvarez. On the eve of what amounts to restricted free agency, Alvarez went out and showcased himself the right way against Patricky Pitbull in what's believed to be his last Bellator fight. He scored a massive knockout, and now he can answer Dana White's phone calls to enter the Octagon. Bellator will have the first right of refusal, but has already made it known that they think Alvarez is headed elsewhere. What does it mean in the grand scope of things? That the marquee match-ups in the UFC's 155-pound division are about to get that much more compelling.See how they were ranked here.
