“Cowboy” Offers Update On Rumored Eddie Alvarez Fight

Eddie Alvarez

That blank fight contract Donald Cerrone holds in his hands remains that way.

Despite numerous media reports stating a Cerrone-Eddie Alvarez fight would be booked for UFC 178 this September, “Cowboy” relayed on Twitter that no deal has been agreed upon at this moment.

“Nothing has been signed yet,” Cerrone wrote. “But anyone, anywhere, anytime. I’m ready.”

Alvarez is the current Bellator lightweight champion, but he holds a special contract with the promotion. After a lengthy legal battle, Alvarez agreed to return. Once he did, he defeated Michael Chandler to become the champion once again.

The deal signed by Alvarez stated a rematch would take place with Chandler on pay-per-view, and he would be allowed to become a free agent after that. The fight was signed, but Alvarez suffered an injury in training and it was cancelled.

Cerrone is coming off a fourth straight win, having finished Jim Miller. He was set to meet Khabib Nurmagomedov, but the unbeaten lightweight contender suffered an injury of his own in training.
