Bjorn Rebney – Eddie Alvarez Talk Goes Dark

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney had high hopes the legal situation with Eddie Alvarez could be worked out after the two were spotted at Bellator 95. Times have apparently taken a sour note

“I don’t have any projections of it getting settled at this point because we’re not talking,” said Rebney on MMA Junkie Radio. “We have a position that we did everything right legally, and the court has supported us. I thought we were headed down a road [to resolution], and then everything went real dark.”

The two have been arguing since Alvarez fulfilled his Bellator contract. The UFC offered a contract that Bellator matched. Alvarez didn’t agree that they were the identical and they’ve been in a legal battle since.

The situation has kept Alvarez away from competition since October.
