Eddie Alvarez vs. Patricky Pitbull Booked for Bellator in October


Eddie Alvarez at Bellator 33
Eddie Alvarez‘s days with Bellator Fighting Championship may be coming to a close, but if that’s the case he’s certainly going out with a bang.

The former Bellator lightweight champion, who is currently on the last fight of his current contract with the promotion, now has a bout scheduled coming up on Oct 12 at Caesar’s Windsor in Canada.

Alvarez is expected to face fellow lightweight Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire in a featured bout on the upcoming Bellator card headed to Canada.

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney announced the fight via Twitter on Monday.

Alvarez lost his Bellator title in a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate against Michael Chandler in 2011 before bouncing back by drubbing former Dream lightweight champion Shinya Aoki in April.

It’s been reported numerous times over the last several months that Alvarez only has one fight left on his current Bellator deal before becoming a free agent.

Facing Alvarez in Canada will be heavy hitting Brazilian Patricky ‘Pitbull’ Freire.

Freire is known for his vicious striking and aggressive style, but he’ll be looking to rebound against Alvarez after going just 1-2 in his last three fights.

The card featuring Alvarez vs. Pitbull will take place on Oct 12 at the Caesar’s Windsor in Canada and will be shown in the United States via MTV2 and Spike.com.
