Eddie Alvarez Bellator 66It appears Eddie Alvarez‘s free agency won’t be coming to an end in the near future without a fight happening first, but it’s not a battle in the cage.

No, the battle is likely to take place in negotiations because the former Bellator lightweight champion appears locked in a fight between two suitors.

Following Alvarez’s last fight, he officially became a free agent after competing under the Bellator banner for the last few years. While the promotion retained a matching period to offer Alvarez equal money to that of any other organization courting his services, they allowed him to seek out the best deal before they decided if they would try to re-sign him or not.

The UFC finally got around to making Alvarez an official offer recently, but Bellator’s decision on whether or not they will match still hasn’t happen, and UFC president Dana White doesn’t expect things to end on a happy note.

“It’s gonna get ugly,” White said when asked about Alvarez’s contract status.

White has made no secret he wants to land Alvarez as a free agent and bring him to the Octagon, but as a former lightweight champion and one of the promotion’s most recognizable names, he also holds a valuable place in the Bellator family as well.

The negotiations continue to go on, but White refrained from giving any further details regarding when or if the Eddie Alvarez situation will come to a close.

“I just don’t know if I can talk about it,” White said about the situation on Thursday.

The ball appears to be in the court of Bellator Fighting Championships right now, but the saga to close the deal and bring Eddie Alvarez into the fold of either organization doesn’t seem likely to happen any time soon.
