Breaking onto the scene by way of Philadelphia,
As he enters the semi-finals of the Dream Lightweight Grand Prix, Alvarez looks set to make his mark as a top lightweight in mixed martial arts. It won't be an easy road, but anyone counting out this Philadelphia warrior may be in for a rude awakening come July 21.
MMAWeekly.com recently had a chance to talk to Alvarez about his upcoming opportunity in the grand prix and he is not lacking any confidence, even with the names of Kawajiri, Uno, and Aoki sharing the tournament bracket alongside him.
I think I had my first click at the beginning of this year and just being able to be consistent in the gym and I feel like it's just the beginning. That's why I'm trying to take fights with the best guys now because I know the end result. I put my time in with stiff competition and I'll have the know how to take care of these guys in the future. So I'm still learning and still feel like I got a lot more years until I can become completely dominant.
