Eddie Alvarez and Bellator had a nasty contract dispute, but the former lightweight champion has no regrets how the situation was handled. After close to a year of arguing, they reached a deal.
“I believed in everything I was doing,” said Alvarez on The MMA Hour. “Every action I made, I believed in. I thought I was doing the right thing. I think my best foot forward to do what I had to go to get to number one in the world and if anybody wants to blame me for that, then they can blame me for that, but I’m just trying to do my best to get to the number one spot.”
The exact details about the new contract haven’t been made public. When both sides were asked, they had no comment.
In his return to the promotion, Alvarez takes on lightweight champ Michael Chandler. For Bellator, Chandler is the only person to defeat Alvarez.
They headline Bellator 106 this Saturday, November 2. It’s from the Convention and Entertainment Center in California and the main card airs live on Spike TV.
