Former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez appeared on The MMA Hour in advance of his bout with Justin Gaethje at UFC 218. Alvarez is a top tier fighter and Justin isn’t a slouch by any means. The winner of this fight may be in the title picture but right now the lightweight championship is being held hostage by Conor McGregor.
