(mmafighting.com)
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...

(mmajunkie.com)

Bjorn Rebney had a holy grail of MMA. He went after it, and in November he'll make it a reality. That's when the Bellator MMA CEO will cross two things off his bucket list: Seeing a fight between former champions Quinton Jackson (32-11 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) and Tito Ortiz (16-11-1 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), and putting on his company's first pay-per-view event. Rebney long has talked about his desire to delve into the pay-per-view landscape with Bellator.
