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.
