Update on Eddie Alvarez’s Status
According to mmajunkie.com, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney said he spoke to Eddie Alvarez on Monday and doesn’t have an update on the fighter’s future. Rebney confirmed that has yet to receive a UFC contract offer that would decide whether they will tryto hold onto the Alvarez or not. Rebney added the following on the situation…
“It really becomes for us a mathematical analysis. We know where we would want to be with Ed, we know what kind of a deal structure would work for Bellator and our partners at Spike TV, and we’re just waiting.”
As previously reported, Rebney cut the remainder of a 90-day exclusive negotiating period that would have kept Alvarez from receiving offers from competing promotions. Additionally, Bellator holds the right to match or decline those offers for a period of six months, and has 15 days to make the choice.
