Rumor: Eddie Alvarez moves closer to signing with ONE Championship

Eddie Alvarez & ONE FC

Violence wanted: contact Eddie Alvarez via walking down any Philadelphia street and just yelling for him. Alvarez is a hitman for hire and it figures the next step in his MMA career may take him across the sea.

The former UFC and Bellator lightweight champion may be on the move again. Currently a free agent, new rumors point to Alvarez taking his talents to Singapore. Philippines? China? Or wherever ONE Championship is holding an epic card this week.

Now 29-6 in his MMA career, we can’t hate on Alvarez for chasing the money. MMA career’s are so short, fighter’s should always be going to the highest bidder. Remember when Alvarez was the BodogFIGHT Welterweight Champion? Eddie’s bank account remembers.

After spending the last eight years evenly split between Bellator and the UFC, it would be wild to see Alavrez punching folks in the face in a ONE Championship cage. (Still want it to call them ONE FC, we just can’t help it).

Alvarez chasing ONE Championship titles at 155 and 170 pounds? We’re here for. Alvarez vs. two division champ Martin Nguyen? Yup. Don’t tell anyone but we’d even watch Eddie Alvarez reignite his rivalry with Shinya Aoki because that’s the type of chaos that fuels us.

“Eddie Alvarez and ONE Championship seems to be getting close to a deal. The Asian Giant is going heavy on the negotiations, battling UFC’s and Bellator’s offers. Looks like ONE wants Eddie to be part of the japanese expasion in 2019, sources tell me.”

Eddie Alvarez takes Asia? We’ll buy it.
