Report: Free Agent Eddie Alvarez Eyeing Deal With RIZIN, Bellator, Not UFC

Eddie Alvarez is currently coming off of a tough second round TKO loss to Dustin Poirier. With that in mind, the former champion is now a free agent. As reported by Middle Easy, a new reumor claims that Eddie Alvarez is eyeing a possible fight under Rizin Fighting Federation or Bellator MMA.
