Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Eddie Alvarez believes that is he walks out of the octagon victorious in his fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC Calgary, then he should be in line for a title shot against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“There is no one. I just simply don’t see no gain anywhere except for Khabib” Alvarez said, according to MMA Fighting.

“That’s it. I don’t know if the UFC — I don’t see them putting anyone else in front of me. It just don’t make any sense. For where I’m at in my career, the people that I’ve went against.

I fight back-to-back-to-back the hardest resume. You name another fighter or anybody in the lightweight division who has fought the toughest guys. You’re hard pressed to find that guy — I’m that guy.”
