Eddie Alvarez to Fulfill Final Fight of Bellator Contract in October

Bellator

Eddie Alvarez will fight at least one more time in Bellator.

The former Bellator lightweight champion has agreed to fight for the promotion on Oct. 12, which will fulfill the final fight on his current contract. Alvarez confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com on Wednesday.

According to Alvarez, his opponent has yet to be signed. The fight will take place Caesars Windsor Hotel & Casino in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. The promotion is expected to announce his opponent and the fight in the coming days.

Following the fight, Alvarez will officially become a free agent. Bellator will have the right to match any offer he receives from another organization within three months after the fight takes place. If they don't, he will be free to sign wherever he chooses. Alvarez said he will focus on training and winning this upcoming fight and then deal with his next contract afterwards.

Alvarez (23-3) got back on the winning track in April when he defeated Shinya Aoki at Bellator 66 via first-round TKO. He has been a member of Bellator since Bellator 1 in April 2009.
