Eddie Alvarez: Nothing Has Changed, Just ‘Going About My Normal Day’

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.
