Eddie Alvarez a crucial addition as ONE Championship begins new era in Tokyo

first_imgBut while Johnson is the more polished martial artist and still very much a part of the pound-for-pound conversation, Alvarez feels far more likely to be the man to lure fight fans into watching this weekend’s event and potentially embracing ONE Championship because while “Mighty Mouse” is sure to go out there and deliver a surgical performance, the 35-year-old ronin, whose style and fury were forged in Kensington, has a history of engaging in violent, jaw-dropping battles.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearChanging addresses has never changed that about Alvarez and that should remain true with his latest move as well.He might have lost his “Most Violent Man in the World” crown to Poirier last summer, but Alvarez is still a sure bet to deliver an exciting performance this weekend against Nastyukhin and start blazing a trail towards the top of the ONE Championship lightweight division in hopes of adding another belt from another promotion to his already expansive collection. Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearThis week, Alvarez begins his quest for another title in another promotion as he squares off against Timofey Nastyukhin in the opening round of the Lightweight Grand Prix at ONE Championship: A New Era on March 30 in Tokyo, Japan.While he goes by the moniker “The Underground King,” the 35-year-old lightweight’s return to competing for an organization based in Asia only makes it more fitting that Alvarez be viewed as a mixed martial arts ronin — a warrior without a lord or master, who takes his services wherever they are needed.Though many fans would associate Alvarez with Bellator MMA or the UFC (or both), he ultimately didn’t stick around either promotion for all that long, all things considered.Where promotional stalwarts easily climb into the high teens or twenties as they continue to compete for the same company year after year, Alvarez only made 10 appearances under the Bellator MMA banner during his four-and-a-half-year stay. In just under four years as a member of the UFC roster, the veteran lightweight logged eight appearances, amassing a 4-3 record with one No Contest.In both instances, however, Alvarez made an undeniable impact, as he was crowned the inaugural Bellator MMA lightweight champion and recaptured the title in his final appearance with the organization before going on to earn the lightweight strap in the UFC as well. Although he only managed one successful title defense between those three different championship reigns, there is no question that over that eight-year stretch, the tenacious fighter from Kensington, Philadelphia, PA. was one of the very best lightweights on the planet.And he still is today as he brings his talents to the ONE Championship cage for the first time this weekend in Tokyo.Alvarez’ free agent decision in October of last year wasn’t a surprise, as the former UFC lightweight champion was coming off a loss to Dustin Poirier in the final fight of his contract and had gone just 1-2 with a No Contest result in four fights since claiming the title from Rafael dos Anjos on July 7, 2016.The Philadelphia native bet on himself heading into his rematch with Poirier, and when things didn’t go his way in Calgary last summer, it seemed inevitable that Alvarez and the UFC would part ways.As part of the triumvirate of talent moving from the UFC to ONE Championship along with Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and “Super” Sage Northcutt, Alvarez has helped bring a different level of exposure and attention to the Singapore-based promotion.While hardcore fight fans have always paid attention to the organization, which began operations in 2011, the addition of the three prominent former UFC talents, coupled with the hiring of retired former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate as an executive and signing a three-year broadcasting deal with Turner Sports has thrust the promotion into the spotlight like never before in North America and they have responded by making all the right moves.Last month, ONE Championship held media events in Los Angeles and Seattle, as well as having Alvarez and Northcutt join the “Inside The NBA” crew on TNT for a little demonstration on the set at halftime during a recent broadcast.Alvarez was front and center for both and should remain a prominent figure for the promotion moving forward. Though Johnson might be the more successful fighter in recent years and the more polished martial artist, Alvarez is the kind of lightning rod who is sure to bring increased attention to ONE Championship, both inside and outside of the cage.Despite having mixed results over his final four fights in the Octagon, Alvarez’s aggressive, attacking style is captivating and that shouldn’t change with his move to ONE Championship. Additionally, Alvarez has never been afraid to voice his thoughts on different matters and made waves during the company’s recent media tour with comments about the UFC’s use of interim titles.His presence, along with that of Johnson, on this weekend’s fight card in Tokyo has prompted far more coverage from outlets that have traditionally glossed over the events in ONE Championship, which creates opportunities to attract new viewers and introduce that first-time audience to the collection of tenured talents competing at the top of the card.While there is risk associated with having Alvarez and Johnson stationed as the second and third fights on the main card, respectively, the hope for ONE Championship is that fans will come for the familiar names they know and stick around for the final four fights of the evening — championship matchups featuring some of the best and brightest names on the company’s roster.At the same time, adding an accomplished, respected veteran like Alvarez into the lightweight ranks and having him compete in the Lightweight Grand Prix, rather than shotgunning a title shot, brings more recognition and greater prestige to the division, which already boasts a couple familiar names, one of the best prospects in the promotion, Lowen Tynanes, and could easily be bolstered by future free agent additions as well.ONE Championship is betting on Alvarez and Johnson working their way through their respective tournaments and earning title shots, gaining momentum and greater exposure for the promotion and its events the further they go. It’s a smart play given their track records and that — with all due respect to the men they’ll meet in their opening round matchups this weekend and the other competitors in the competition — it would be alarming if both didn’t emerge victorious and end up fighting for gold in the not too distant future. Eddie Alvarez has won titles in organizations that fans who came to the sport in the last decade have never heard of before.He’s fought veterans whose names carry weight with old heads, but whose records look average when you pull them up on Sherdog or Tapology, largely because their victories came in the days before having a Wikipedia entry became a measuring stick for your abilities inside the cage.last_img read more
