After battling for a very long time to be released from Bellator MMA, Eddie Alvarez (25-3) has now officially left the promotion, and that of course is thanks to the new Bellator President Scott Coker. Following his release, the former Bellator Lightweight Champion had his biggest wish to come true as he immediately became a part of the world's greatest MMA organization, Ultimate Fighting Championship. Alvarez is already scheduled to meet #5 Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (24-6) at UFC 178 in Las Vegas by the end of next month.
When you think about Hollywood action movies, you think fake, but Cung Le is the real deal as he uses the same fighting moves on the big screen as he would have used in the Octagon. The sanshou kickboxer also explains the difference between preparation for films and for MMA matches.

Ex-UFC Heavyweight title holder Randy "The Natural" Couture (19-11) and former PRIDE Heavyweight Champion Fedor "The Last Emperor" Emelianenko (34-4) was once close to meet each other, even the cover of the EA MMA game for consols featured them, but both MMA legends are retired. The American, however, after being asked if he likes the idea to face the Russian in a grappling contest answered: "That would be interesting and certainly given the time to prepare and get back up into good, solid grappling and wrestling shape, that would be a lot of fun and I think, you know. I'm not sure how active Fedor is at this stage, you know him being retired as well, but I'm certainly no opposed to an idea like that."
It would be awesome to see both legends at Metamoris, such a match would draw many people for sure. Who do you think would win?
