Their Love Story
The couple's inevitable bond dates back to the time when they were teenagers. Eddie Alvarez, age 37, met Jamie while he was fifteen, and their bond is still going strong after two decades of their togetherness.
The high school sweethearts share several unforgettable memories.
Reminiscing his earlier days with Jamie, Eddie shared his memory from their youth when they wanted to go to a dance club but were too young to get in and used fake IDs.
Sharing another fond memory, the UFC champion said,
From there, we hung out almost every day. I never liked being in my neighborhood, ever. I didn’t have a car, so she would drive to one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Philadelphia and pick me up. I honestly was scared for her sometimes.
Having dated for several years, the couple tied the knot in 2008. Withstanding all the hardships together, their bond has only grown stronger with each passing year.

The success Eddie has garnered throughout his career did not come easy. However, with several sacrifices and constant dedication for the game, he secured the titles, including the UFC Lightweight Champion and Bellator Lightweight World Champion.
His outstanding skills left him being recognized as one of the most accomplished Lightweight champions in UFC history.
With such an accomplished career, Eddie is estimated to have amassed a net worth of 8 million dollars. Besides his astounding career as a fighter, his fortune also comes from brand endorsements and merch sales.
