Bellator MMA has officially tendered a contract offer to its former lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez (24-3 MMA, 8-1 BFC).

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned from multiple industry sources that Bellator executives have issued an offer to Alvarez to match the deal he recently received from the UFC. The move is an effort by Bellator to retain the rights to the star 155-pounder, whose contract with the promotion expired following an October win over Patricky "Pitbull" Freire but who remained in an exclusive matching period with the tournament-based organization.

Stupid, let him go and the UFC will not only pay him a ton but will feed him to the wolves. Either he becomes the star bred by your tournaments or he returns for much less money. Let him go!

If bellator matched his contract I believe Eddie will stay
With bellator. Dumb move though

I think it'd be a better career choice for Eddie to stay with Bellator, especially if both promotions are offering him close to the same amount. I think that's what Eddie will end up doing too.
But damn do I want to see him in the UFC from a fan's point of view.
