Former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez has confirmed that he will compete at least once more inside the Bellator cage in a recent interview with MMAFighting.com. Alvarez will fight October 15.
The card takes place from Windsor, Ontario, Canada’s Caesars Windsor Hotel & Casino. No opponent has been named, but one is expected to be announced shortly.
Alvarez will officially become a free agent after the fight, giving Bellator three months to match any deal he receives. Alvarez (23-3) lost the Bellator title to Michael Chandler last year, but rebounded to defeat Shinya Aoki at Bellator 66.
