Much of the spotlight following UFC Fight Night 81 is understandably shining on TJ Dillashaw vs. Dominick Cruz, but Sunday’s event will also feature a pivotal scrap between Anthony Pettis and Eddie Alvarez.

It’s a huge fight for Pettis, obviously, since it marks the first time he will have competed since he lost the lightweight title to Rafael dos Anjos. While a loss for Pettis certainly won’t end his run as a contender–he is just 28–it would be a massive setback.

The 32 year-old Alvarez, meanwhile, could jump right into the title shot mix if he defeats Pettis, after going 1-1 so far in the Octagon.

You can check out the “Embedded” video that the UFC has produced for the bout below.
