A rematch nearly three-and-a-half years in the making is expected to take place on April 20.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today learned that both Shinya Aoki (30-5 MMA, 0-0 BFC) and Eddie Alvarez (22-3 MMA, 6-1 BFC) have verbally agreed to meet at an as-yet-unannounced Bellator 66 event.

Contracts are expected to be finalized shortly.

Bellator 66 takes place April 20, but Bellator Fighting Championships officials have yet to announce a venue for the card.

This fight should pull some great numbers for Bellator.

So this will be Alvarez's last fight in Bellator then, right?

huge fight for Eddie, I dont think the UFC will sign him if he's on a 2 fight losing streak but he can command some dollars if he beats Aoki.

I like Aoki, but I wanna see both of these guys in the UFC. I think Alvarez has this if its a 3 rounder
