Hey Eddie Alvarez, Dana White Is Waiting On Line One

UFC president Dana White made sure to let pending free agent Eddie Alvarez know he is interested.

Just minutes after Alvarez delivered a vicious knockout kick to Patricky Pitbull in the main event of Bellator 76 Friday night, White posted a message to the fighter while in Brazil for Saturday’s UFC 153 card.

Alvarez became a free agent following the win, and most expect him to sign with the UFC. Bellator will be able to match any offer presented to Alvarez, but it appears the promotion is ready to move on without him.
