Every once in awhile, I learn something new and it shocks my foundation. I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm not the brightest bulb in the batch and I learn something new all the time. But tonight, Eddie Alvarez (who refuses to take a break after winning the Bellator LW Championship and is still in the gym working out) told me that in Japan, his nickname is "Monster Kid."
So you mean to tell me Eddie has been sitting on that gem of a nickname this whole time?
I'm bringing back Monster Kid. Be ready.
Gonna be a busy few weeks here, as we have Junior Killer, Abel Trujillo, Michael Johnson, Guto Inocente, & Siyar Bahadurzada fighting before the year is over.
And last but certainly not least, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, facing Mike Myle at WSOF in Vancouver, CAN.
Unlike Eddie and Monster Kid, AJ has had the Rumble nickname for awhile. It's well deserved.
But it's no Monster Kid.
