Eight months of anger, resentment and legal roadblocks came to a tidy conclusion last week when former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez reached a settlement with the promotion that built him into a star then threatened to cage his livelihood away for years in the courts.

The U.S. justice system never got around to determining whether Bellator matched the terms of the UFC's contract. But nonetheless, Alvarez now is scheduled to rematch Michael Chandler in the co-main event of Bellator's inaugural pay-per-view, providing a cordial end to his rocky year...

It sucks we can't see how he would do against the top lightweights in the UFC but i would rather he fight in Bellator than watch the prime of his career be caught up in a court case. Too bad Chandler beats him again.

He's right about one thing...his fight with Chandler is the main event, despite how the advertising may show it.

It seems the promotions will always have the advantage of time...they can wait forever to work out a deal, it's always the fighter who needs to earn money and move towards compromise.
