If you’ve been following former Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez’s recent timeline of events, you’re aware that he’s recently gone from having the two largest mixed martial arts promotions in a bidding war over him, to now having to deal with a lawsuit from his former employer. According to Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, Alvarez’s departure is not definitive at this point . Here's what he had to say on the issue with CagedInsider.com.
“The thing that is so discouraging about it is Eddie and I have had a very tight relationship for about four years, and the last three weeks have not been such a tight relationship. We were, I’d go as far as to say pretty good friends over a four-year period and that’s the most discouraging thing about it. It’s just that. I mean look, it’s a disagreement. It’s going to come to resolution. We’re either going to settle it and he’s going to fight in the Bellator cage or it’s going a different route. My hope is it gets settled sooner, rather than later. “
