Eddie Alvarez Camp Hoping To Reach Settlement In Bellator Lawsuit

By BJPENN.COM News - August 6, 2013

Eddie Alvarez was on the verge of fighting for The Ultimate Fighting Championship following the expiration of his Bellator contract.

When the UFC’s offer was matched word for word by the Bellator promotion all hell broke loose and he’s been forced on the sidelines to endure a legal battle ever since.

Now the two parties are apparently close to reaching a settlement.

MMAFighting got the scoop:

“We’re not there yet but hoping we can come together [on a settlement],” Robinson said.

Robinson wouldn’t discuss whether there was a chance Alvarez could fight on Bellator’s Nov. 2 pay-per-view, headlined by Tito Ortiz vs. Quinton Jackson. He also wouldn’t specify whether he was hoping the settlement would be a new Bellator deal or allowing Alvarez to sign with UFC.
