Live Chat: Eddie Alvarez to UFC, UFC Fight Night weekend and more

There's never a slow week.

Just when you think you're going to be talking about Fight Pass cards across the planet, Bellator releases arguably their most successful fighter and public figure only for said figure to sign with the UFC and be booked in an insane match-up with far reaching implications.

We'll discuss why Bellator President Scott Coker did it, why it matters, what could happen if Alvarez defeats Donald Cerrone at UFC 178 and much more.

But, lest we forget, there is, in fact, not one, but two UFC cards this weekend. The free Fox Sports 1 card isn't bad, but not great either. The more interesting bouts actually take place on the Fight Pass card in Macau in the morning where Michael Bisping faces Cung Le and Tyron Woodley takes on Dong Hyun Kim.
