Roger Huerta steps in for the injured Pat Curran for what is, almost certainly, Bellator Fighting Championships' biggest fight ever. Huerta will take on lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in a non-title fight that promises to be explosive.
Eddie Alvarez has five months remaining on his Bellator contract, according to company CEO Bjorn Rebney. But will he be back with the promotion once those five months are up? Or is he finally headed for the UFC?
We'll have to wait until UFC 125 to see if #1 Frank Edgar can keep #4 Gray Maynard from taking his belt. Then the winner will have to face the winner of WEC 53's title fight between #14 Ben Henderson and Anthony Pettis. That will be hot.
One of those newborn debates ponders the possibility of Bellator Fighting Championships getting into bed with Strikeforce. Interestingly enough, the idea has gained ground in the minds of fans due to Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez's domination of former UFC fighter Roger Huerta at Bellator 33 on October 21st, and the calling out of Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez by both Alvarez and Bellator's CEO, Bjorn Rebney
