Saturday’s shootout between Donald Cerrone (pictured) and Eddie Alvarez might officially be UFC 178‘s co-main event, but the lightweight affair could very well steal the show.
Cerrone is one of the division’s hottest fighters having won four straight scraps, all via devastating finish. Alvarez will be making his long-awaited UFC debut after finally escaping the clutches of Bellator.
Cerrone always brings it and the pressure will be on Alvarez to live up to the hype.
From a betting standpoint, they are dead even at -115. So flip a coin and enjoy.
The winner of this bout should be on the doorstep of a title fight.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities.
