On Tuesday morning, Bellator MMA announced that it had reached a settlement with lightweight fighter Eddie Alvarez.
Alvarez, a member of the Blackzilians fight team in Florida, had been waging a legal battle against Bellator owners Viacom over his right to go to the UFC. Facing a long legal battle that could easily keep him out of the cage until 2015, Alvarez elected instead to come to a deal with Bellator. He’ll return to their cage on Nov. 2 for a rematch against current Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler, who defeated Alvarez for the belt on Nov. 29, 2011.
MMAWeekly.com official content partner Bleacher Report presents the first sit-down interview with Alvarez, conducted by contributor Alexandra Robinson. In the interview, Alvarez explains his reasoning behind settling with Bellator and much more.
