Eddie Alvarez was this past weekend given the green light to entertain offers from other promotions, as promised by Bellator CEO Rebney.
But the ex-champ on Monday told MMAjunkie.com Radio that the process of taking bids is still in the early stages.
"This decision is a lot less in my hands than the fans think it is because of the matching clause," Alvarez said. "It's up to whichever promotions are bidding. It's up to them to bid the proper number for me to go."
