Alright, so Dana White was right. The contract negotiations between Eddie Alvarez and Bellator did get ugly, but in the end both parties have come to a temporary agreement to set aside all differences so that Eddie Alvarez may fight Michael Chandler on the Tito vs. Rampage PPV which will be held November 2nd in Long Beach, California.
So even if you don’t support Bellator but are a fan of Eddie Alvarez, you should definitely buy this PPV since Eddie Alvarez will get a substantial cut of the revenue. We’re not sure how much it will be, but according to Alvarez’s manager, Bellator assembled a ‘good deal.’
Eddie did get a fair deal. I believe Bellator made it really easy in the end to put a good deal together
Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler will co-main event Bellator’s debut venture into this entire PPV deal. In the end, MMA fans win because that first fight was ridunkulous, but was unfortunately overshadowed by Shogun Rua vs. Dan Henderson which was held that same night back in 2011.
