Bellator MMA counters UFC's offer for former champion Eddie Alvarez
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.

It's several months removed, but one of the biggest MMA stories of 2012 still lingers. And it will linger at least through April, when two of its key parties are scheduled to meet. Add Donald Cerrone's name to the list of fighters who have had an opinion on Jon Jones turning down a fight with Chael Sonnen, which helped lead to the cancellation of UFC 151 in September. The interesting part about Cerrone's stance? He and Jones are teammates at the Jackson-Winkeljohn camp in Albuquerque, N.M. ā€“ and he definitely isn't playing favorites just because they share a gym and a coaching staff. "Yes, I'd have fought," Cerrone said this past Friday at a question-and-answer session for fans prior to the weigh-ins for UFC 155 in Las Vegas. "They could call me tomorrow and ask me to fight. I think you need to fight. That's our job. I don't think you should curl up and find a way out. So yes, that's my answer."
