Former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez sent out word Friday that a court date has been set to possibly determine his future employer. Alvarez is currently sidelined as the contracts presented to him by both the UFC and Bellator get straightened out.

The biggest issue between the two deals centers around the UFC offering Alvarez pay-per-view points for wins. Bellator countered by saying they would match, but the promotion has yet to air – or schedule – any PPV events. He also spoke out on feelings for Bellator.
“To clear the Air I love Bellator,” Alvarez wrote, “am I happy (with) what’s ging on? No. But things will pass and my feelings will remain the same. Thank you all (for) having my back thru out and pray this can get dealt with quickly.”
