Just across the Detroit River last night, Eddie Alvarez had his B.J. Penn moment.
After stunning Patricky Pitbull early in their main event bout last night inside of Caesars Windsor Casino, Alvarez found himself in some trouble of his own. "It's just something I'm learning to deal with and embrace it rather than try to resist it," Alvarez said post fight in regards to his seemingly constant penchant for danger.
After some clinch work and more mutual love taps, Alvarez landed a head kick with just under ten seconds remaining in the 1st round that you only see in video games, a finish that will likely be his last as a Bellator fighter. Just to seal the deal, Alvarez landed some more accurate leather upon the face of his opponent until "Big" John McCarthy decided that enough damage had been done.
