PostSubject: Alvarez Battles Shinya Aoki at ‘Bellator 66′   Thu Mar 01, 2012 11:56 am

Quote :
After much speculation, former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez will in fact get the opportunity to rematch reigning Dream champ Shinya Aoki (Pictured). The 155-pounders will do battle on April 20th at “Bellator 66.”

The organization made the announcement Thursday morning via Twitter.

The event takes place inside Indoor Exposition Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday.

Aoki caught Alvarez in a vicious heel hook in their initially meeting in December of 2008. Since getting demolished by Gilbert Melendez at “Strikeforce: Nashville” in April 2010, the submission specialist has rattled off seven consecutive victories.

Although the veteran has 36 fights under his belt, this bout marks Aoki’s third scrap in America. All of his other fights have taken place in his homeland of Japan.

Alvarez is fresh off losing his title to Michael Chandler. “The Silent Assassin” was perfect through his prior seven contests before the November upset

Thats a pretty big fight for Bellator. Aoki could definitely win this.

I'm prety sure Eddie has lost to him before, this should be a good fight either way. Hopefully Alvarez pulls it off, I really want to see him in the UFC.

Yeah... wasn't it a fight or 2 before he signed with Bellator?
