Time to work“With that simple message, Joel Álvarez accompanied the publication he made on his Instagram in which he confirmed his next fight. The 28-year-old Spaniard will face Brazilian Thiago Moisés, who is ranked 15th in the lightweight ranking, on November 13.. The lawsuit, therefore, will be the most important at the moment in the career of the ‘Phenomenon’. If he achieves victory, he will get into the noble positions of his division.

Álvarez lived a great 2020. He fought twice on Fight Island and achieved two submission victories in the first round against important rivals such as Joe Duffy and Alexander Yakovlev (October 2020). Those triumphs made him highly valued within the company. For this reason, in March he renewed with the UFC and in May he should have fought Christos Giagos. He was unable to do so because the procedures to enter the United States (more strict and slow due to the pandemic) did not arrive on time. Because of that episode, Joel decided to “continue professionalizing his team” and he closed, in a friendly way, his relationship with his manager and signed with Ali Abdelaziz, one of the most important managers of the moment.
