Eddie Alvarez wants to fight. And he wants to fight for the UFC.
However, Alvarez is currently unable to do so, as his contract gets sorted out in a courtroom.
Alvarez recently appeared on Inside MMA and stated that he just wants to get on with his career.
I’m just going about my normal day. I’m not a lawyer (or) a manager. I do my training. The whole ordeal is very obvious of a Bellator pay-per-view – which never even existed, vs. a UFC pay-per-view. That is not even comparable. It’s up to a judge. The truth will prevail.
Bellator officials said they matched every term given to Alvarez in the UFC contract proposal, but Alvarez is rebutting a Bellator PPV claim since the promotion has yet to air any pay-per-views.
Alvarez is a former lightweight champion and is 24-3 in his career. He went 9-1 with Bellator.
