Bellator CEO: Alvarez vs. Pitbull confirmed for Oct. 12
Curtain call for Bellator career?
According to Bellator Fighting Championships CEO Bjorn Rebney, former lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez (23-3) will faces one-time tournament finalist Patricky Pitbull (10-3) on October 12.
The event will be a part of Bellator's seventh season and could be the finale, depending how the promotion's schedule shakes out. It is also the final fight of Alvarez's Bellator contract before he becomes a free agent.
Alvarez is coming off of a dominant first round TKO victory over Shinya Aoki, while Pitbull looks to rebound from a first-round submission loss to Lloyd Woodard.
It is unknown whether Alvarez will re-sign with Bellator at this time.
