If you’ve been following former Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez’s recent timeline of events, you’re aware that he’s recently gone from having the two largest mixed martial arts promotions in a bidding war over him, to now having to deal with a lawsuit from his former employer. According to Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, Alvarez’s departure is not definitive at this point .

“The thing that is so discouraging about it is Eddie and I have had a very tight relationship for about four years, and the last three weeks have not been such a tight relationship. We were, I’d go as far as to say pretty good friends over a four-year period and that’s the most discouraging thing about it. It’s just that. I mean look, it’s a disagreement. It’s going to come to resolution. We’re either going to settle it and he’s going to fight in the Bellator cage or it’s going a different route. My hope is it gets settled sooner, rather than later.“

They will end up settling, I dont see this going on, Eddie is gonna want to get paid and not sit out for months or a year.

Sucks that we wont get to see him in the UFC but oh well.

Anyone agree with Rebney that Hawn and Chander are top 5 lightweights?

Chandler is borderline top 5, most have him in the 6 range but with Edgar leaving the div that opens up a slot so Chandler could slide into the 5 spot.

But no way is Hawn top 5, that means Hawn would be above Maynard or Pettis? For what?

Beating Tirloni, Cupcake and Weedman? None of them are top 15 LW so I dont see how anyone could say Hawn is top 5.

How long would he have to sit out for?  These matching contracts suck.  Bjorn Rebney sucks.

Neither are top five. Chandler's probably top 10, but it's hard to gauge based on the guys he's fighting in Bellator. How many 155'ers would you put in front of Hawn in terms of rankings? 10? 15? Bellator is in the building process, and they should be looking forward. Eddie did his time for the organization, it's time to let go Bjorn.

Haha Didn't even know that's their slogan. Sucks for Eddie though if he really is stuck due to contract. Awesome photoshop.
