With match-ups recently finalized for Saturday's inaugural DREAM event in Saitama, Japan, one participating fighter will be on loan from the fledgling M-1 Global organization. And no, it's not Fedor Emelianenko. Instead, it's the only other announced commodity of M-1 Global: Eddie Alvarez (12-1).

Alvarez, who is making his debut at 155 lbs., will be taking on Chute Boxe's Andre "Dida" Amade (6-2-1) in the first round of a star-studded 16-man lightweight grand prix. He discussed his contractual status and upcoming bout while a guest on Monday's edition of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), a content partner site of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com)

"Monte (Cox, M-1 Global CEO) is my manager, so verbally we agreed I'd fight for M-1 when their shows come," Alvarez said. "And I physically signed with (EliteXC), and they both agreed that I'm first and foremost for M-1, and then I'm with (EliteXC) also when I don't have fights for M-1. But now M-1 would be lending me out to whatever. It's a confusing situation. All I know is this is the opportunity of a lifetime for me, and I really want to, I'm glad that they're letting me do it so I can take full advantage of it."
