So Eddie Alvarez will square off against Michael Chandler at Bellator’s upcoming PPV in a move that not many saw coming. His new contract with Bellator has been a pretty hot topic since the announcement, with some word coming down that it is probably a two-fight contract with Bellator that allows him to become a free agent after the two fights, as well as become a free agent immediately if he loses a fight.
If that sounds crazy after all of that legal stuff they went through, you aren’t alone in thinking that. But then this morning Alvarez released a statement asking that people please stop speculating about his contract.
“Recently there has been speculation in the media regarding my settlement with Bellator. The settlement is involved and complicated and contains many contingencies. The terms of the settlement are confidential and neither I, nor my representatives, are going to release these terms to anyone. The speculations, which have been printed, are just that, speculations, and could not possibly be completely accurate as the settlement is over forty (40) pages long. I would suggest that these speculations are helping no one, and respectfully request that they cease immediately. All I want to do is fight.”
