    When they say “Super Fight” it just means non-title right?.
    I like Alvarez and I want him to fight Melendez as soon as but in this case I want him to lose. Why you ask. Well it is this non -title bullshit that pisses me off. I want him to lose just so people start saying “well he isn’t really the champ” and hopefully that will stop other champs from doing this. Hey Alvarez and Bellator, this DOES count.

    i agree with you MMA-LOGIC, thats exactly why i want Alvarez to lose. If you beat the champ then that makes you THE CHAMP. I understand Bellator feels that only fighters that make through their tournament set up”deserve” to fight for the belt, but, if the champion loses then his title loses its meaning. So Eddie better fight like he is defending that title because in a way, he is. I like Alvarez but GO HUERTA!!

    I don’t know about all this wanting him to loose business though. All I want is a good fight.

    well, what i mean by wanting him to lose is simply so that Bellator can perhaps recieve some negative backlash, and perhaps learn a lesson. If your champion is fighting someone in the same weight class then that belt should always be on the line. Otherwise your champion is not really the champion and your promotion cant be taken too seriously. Thats just my opinion. And imagine how Alvarez would feel if he was to lose and still keep the belt. It wouldnt be the same. He wouldnt feel like the real champion knowing he lost while he was champion.

    I hear you Joe and i agree with you 100%. The best should be on the line anytime the champ sets foot in the cage unless it’s a catch weight bout. They could have covered their asses a little in that respect by letting both fighters weigh in at 160..problem solved.

    Like you, I think it will blow up in their face one day and that day could be today.
